Chirping birds. Barking Dogs. Screaming Children. Yes, we're back outside to record this episode. The pops and clicks of the previous effort replaced by the flora and fauna of mid-Spring. We weave in and out of various topics, creating some loose connections and trying to show that nothing occurs in a vacuum. MELODIES: 00:10:20 -- Libation Time 00:…
 
Sometimes you just can't get things right. You find a ghost in the signal chain and try to fix it only to find you've made things worse. Apologies in advance for all the pops and clicks. Among the noisy abberations you will find a fair amount of game discussion and enough salt and vinegar to properly dress your chips. POPS & CLICKS: 00:09:49 -- Dri…
 
This is us, as you might find us should you wander into a watering hole where we might be holding court at the bar. This could very well be a prime example of the conversation you might stumble upon. The nature of this conversation spirals around, over and through the games and topics, so timestamps have been kept to a minimum. ROUNDS: 00:00:25 -- …

Hey kids, it's No-fun February, 2021 edition. And this February has been the most No-fun in years.

CHAPTERS: 00:29:07 -- Wir…

It took us two tries to get this one right. Well, right might be too strong of a word. Lets swap that for recorded. Yeah, we finally got the episode recorded.

This episode marks the beginning of our 8th year ranting and raving about games (and books (and music (and life))). We kick it into gear with some heavy discussions of almost all of the above.

It was a lovely evening away from the maddening crowd so we decided to do a show. Just like the 181 times before, we gathered with some microphones and chatted about board games and other things.

Shambolic: adjective -- chaotic, disorganize, confused. Could we use that definition to describe this episode? Sure. Will we? Sure. Will You? Possibly. Does that make it bad? Possibly.

Well, you caught us on a nice summer evening, sitting outside, sippin' whisky, and talkin' board games. It's the best we can do in this paranoid pandemic times. Maybe the closest we've come to the old days in a while. The most human the interaction has been. Whatever the case, we think we did alright with this one. FIELD RECORDINGS: 00:07:19 -- The…

It's been a hard couple of weeks here, so for those of you tuning in, we thank you. It really does mean something to us.

And we are all devastated by the murder of George Floyd as well as the continued bea…
 
Have you really played all the games? Probably not. And we've all probably got a couple on our list that folks might consider classics, or required games. We talk about those glaring oversights here in the latest episode of As the Lockdown Turns. Many other items covered as well. You know, a typical show. Enjoy. SCRUTINIES: 00:02:47 -- Because We'r…

Hey all. The Punching Cardboard team is in Isolation. Isolation sucks. It's lonely. It's unnerving. It's stopping us from playing games and talking about them. But we still have voices, and we think just maybe you'd like our voices to visit the wilderness of your own isolation. You know, to counteract the ones in your brain urging you to scream and…
 
There are times when you need to make something out of nothing. Entering the studio for episode 172 was one of those times. I mean, we had next to nothing. A game session, a new dram, a couple albums. But we pulled it together, rambled into other territories, consolidated some stray ideas, and in the end lasted for the marathon. Yea us!? PATHS: 00:…

Consider a concert set list. The band comes out and opens with a couple of deep cuts, a bit slow-tempo, really a nod to the fans. But then they kick it in, building tension, generating release, mixing cuts from all their albums, back and forth across the years. For the encore, a few more deep cuts for the die-hards who haven't rushed out to beat th…

Games, Games, Game. Now that Summer is ended, or at least Summer vacation has, we're getting back into a routine that promises to result in the playing of more games. As a result, despite a brief interlude where we express a bit of weariness with the state of the world, we're diving deep into a few games currently hitting our table. Get your wet su…
 
It's been a pretty lazy Summer here in the Pacific Northwest; hence, we are pretty lazy at the moment. We find ourselves without a deep take on a game here, so we wander lazily around a number of game sessions and offer up some first impressions. This one's really pretty much about playing games. Cheers. LAZY AFTERNOONS: 00:16:35 -- Joe's Light Gam…
 
There is no particular order to the order in which we talk about games in this episode. We have a free-wheelin' conversation covering several games to kick things off and then go off on tangents for awhile before a couple deeper dives, including all the mistakes we made. I mean, come on, who presents their mistakes as a feature of a game conversati…
