Mark Johnson's occasional & opinionated podcast about family strategy boardgames

Sorry for the delay!

I'm disappointed, too. I actually recorded a podcast three days ago. I was experimenting with a different recording setup, and after listening to it I decided the sound quality in the first half of the show was unacceptable. So I need to redo it, *sigh*. The better news is that I think the recording rig CAN work ok, and it gives me a little more flexibility in where & when I record a show. I'd love to say that will me do even more shows with even more people, but the reality is that I'm just trying to keep up with the pace I set in 2005!

A couple advance tidbits from the soon-to-be-rerecorded-show...

Want to join me in a play-by-web game of Torres, Alhambra, and/or Fearsome Floors? Then make sure you're a registered player on the pbw site Boîte à Jeux and send me an email with your username. Better yet, post it in a comment here. It's not possible to create a password-protected game just for BGTGers on that site, but I can invite specific users to join me in a game.

It's a session report and feedback show featuring Jenseits von Theben, Vegas Showdown, Bolide, and Zahltag. In case you want to study-up or something. :)

Ah, took me a while. TWIT = This Week in Tech, right? A top podcast . . . when you're not listening to boardgame podcasts, that is! :)

You are right about TWIT.
I listen to every show of TWIT, Security Now, Inside the Net, WebDev Radio, The Dice Tower, Garret's Games, and your show, and an smattering of occasional other episodes and I still don't have enough to listen to.

Of course your podcast is top notch so I'm always impatient to get another one.

I'll play Alhambra. I'm willing to learn FF. But I'm all Torres'd out for now.

My BaJ name is "ekted".

I'm a little afraid of your next PodCast...

I was very interested in Jenseits von Theben based on what I heard. I must admit, it was partly because it was rare and unusual. Since I want to buy games to play, and not as trophies, I talked myself out of it. The price made that decision much easier. A positive session report might get me in trouble...

Of course, I might be safe since that window of opportunity has probably closed.

Don't worry, tpan, it's really more interesting than good (though it is certainly enjoyable). Assuming it doesn't get a reprint, you should be able to get a copy down the line, if you feel you need one.

Hi! As usual, my name there is also snoozefest. I would play Alhambra, maybe Torres (it's been a while, though, and I've never played on Boite a jeux).

And how about Tikal on Spiel By Web? That's one of those games I really liked a lot, but haven't played in years.
