Not content to be shackled to the here and now, we boldly let our imaginations run free as to what the future of board gaming may look like. (Most likely no flying cars.)
And then? We talk about our sponsor: spielpro.com (38:48)
And then? It is a very quick stop near the guild, as Ben visits the only place that could help him with his Tory problem. No, not the firing squad... but the hospital! (39:29), where we talk about the factors that determine the size of your collection.
And then? Nick Mariner has things to say. Unscripted. It is 37,8% less insipid than what we have said about Barcelona - The Rose of Fire. (01:03:06)
And then? We don't review a game. We do something else. We talk. Or rather Ben does. With somebody else. It is really as mindblowing and revolutionary as it sounds. Hold on to your seats so as to not get sucked through a PORTAL of gaming INSIDER knowledge! (Get it? Get it? Get it? No... well, then just listen... at 01:14:43)
And then? It is time for the outro. Wherein we speak about how you can reach out to us. (01:40:46)
Nothing.... it's just a podcast. Sheesh.
Did you know that there is website where gamers like you can pledge money to a board game before it gets made, so it can collect the funds necessary to kickstart its production? I believe it's called "Pledge-Monies-For-Gamies".com
One of those games there is called The City of Kings and Ben took it upon himself to hunt down poor, beleaguered designer Frank West to bombard him with questions about his soon-to-come-into-existence game.

In this week's episode we are going to talk about things that actually matter to gamers. Firstly size! How big is your gaming collection? How big should it be? What is the right way to determine sizes?
T.C. Petty III returns to talk about that other thing that matters in board games: fairness. How does it matter? Why? And what should we do about it? (38:21)
At 52:52 we talk about some more things that matter, namely our sponsor: spielpro.com
We then turn our gaze towards the urgent matters of the guild, some unfotunate infections and of course your urgent responses to the question of what keeps people out of the hobby? (53:40)
Our sponsor vengeful-games.dk reminds us not only that games can be bought, but we also give recommendations on what to spend your hard-earned Euros or Kronen on. (01:13:20)
And finally we wonder, what is the matter with Roll Player (01:15:20)? Is it good? Is it bad? Do you really want to know? Do we even know where we stand? What are all these questions doing here? Am I getting paid by word count?
The long-awaited sequel to the medium-bending, limits-shattering and sense-defying entry that was our first Appurtenance Archive is finally upon us. Or rather upon you, PIPL.
We have once more gathered all our mental faculties to bring you the most hard-hitting piece of review journalism ever to grace the podcast format. Today we review a calendar!
But not just any calendar, but the German sensation sure to sweep the nation (so long as that nation is Germany)... Frosted Games' Brettspielkalender.
Is it truly as rectangular as the legends say?
Are the dates actually sorted by ascending number?
And which games have been selected to grace the pages of each month?
Listen, and ye shall be enlightened
