Why I Don’t Listen to Board Game Podcasts Anymore

Okay, the title is actually a lie because I do listen to podcasts about board and card games. When I first got into the podcast scene, I listened to them at every waking moment of my day. From the moment I woke up, I had the next podcast in the queue. I subscribed to between … Continue reading

Solo Gaming Stigma

Playing board games by oneself is becoming more popular or at least more in the main stream of board game media and content. There are many ‘solo-only’ games released every year and even more games that come with a solo-mode. Further, there is a huge community of folks who take the time to make solo … Continue reading

What’s on the Shelf #2

The second installment of What’s on the Shelf! This part of my board game shelf is the bottom right corner. This is where I keep most of my medium box games and a good amount of my games that can play 5+ players. While I may not always look at the bottom shelf, these games … Continue reading

Including New Meeples #1: Password

When I was growing up, my family loved to play Password. First published in 1962, this classic word association game remains in print today. What my family enjoyed about Password was the challenge of finding a one word clue in order to get others to guess the (pass)word. This is not only a clever minimalist … Continue reading

5 Three Player Only Games

We hear a lot about two-player only games, but less about three player only games. Many folks with three players at their game night choose a 2-4 player game to satisfy the player count. However, I have found three player only games really hit the spot because they were designed specifically with three players in … Continue reading

Reframing Language: “This Game is Crazy!”

One of the most said lines from board game reviewers and board game content creators I hear is: “This game is crazy!” Besides not knowing what the reviewer even means by this statement, ‘crazy’ has very apparent ableist connotation.
