The end of the year is approaching, and what better time to think about the things that are left once we're gone... our legacy so to speak. What is up with those Legacy games, anyway? Let's get to the bottom of that. What are they, why do they work and how do they do it well?

With the slightest of delays, we return to our Patreon shoutouts and give our trusting backers a knickname of their own. (42:40)

Last episode we talked about community, this episode we will talk about your thoughts on the topic as we plant our feet in the guild. (47:58)

The Boardgame Professor returns to also speak about community from his usual place of learned wisdom and in a sudden, yet inevitable twist.... acquired con-crud. (1:07:46)

And to round out the episode, we review sand-timed release and pirate-themed evening entertainment: A Tale of Pirates.

This is a fairly unusual slice from the Contrarian. In that there isn't one specific event, comment or outburst that prompted this response. Instead it is more of a general observation on one particular movement within the hobby.

Namely the ever-present belief that smartiness or cleverity drives the majority of this hobby. Why is that? And if it's true. who do we really hurt by that?

The answer is, of course, everyone.

Thanks to the ample generosity of our Patreon backers we proudly bring you the first of hopefully many installments of our very own RPG-show.

But instead of accosting your ears with fake accents, ludicrous plots or pointless tangents, we talk about roleplaying games in a more general sense. An introduction to the topic itself, our own history with the genre... and a few pieces of knowledge (half or false) on it.

The slow and much dreaded return to normalcy has left its marks on your hosts this week, and we ponder the question of community. Namely the what, and partly the how.

(34:45) We drop by the guild to talk about what it is that kills a game for you.

(1:01:51) We also review the little wargame that could: The Cousin's War.

Spiel 17 came and went. But like an ex you don't quite want to let go of, we reminisce and opine on what it has brought.

Ooh.. it's the spooky time of the year. Which means we will talk about death. Namely, the death of board games or rather the causes that may kill a board game.

We pick the winners of our Patreon raffle. (40:45)

A quick stop at the guild helps us warm up, as we ponder the reasons that make you fall in love with a board game. (45:12)
