Brandon ordered a big box of goodies from our buddies at Time Well Spent Games and Josh can't wait to find out whats inside. We discuss games we've been playing, games we've acquired, and a special dinner with Edward from Heavy Cardboard. We take a walkthrough medieval France with our buddy, Jacques - and then get into our review of Orleans from Tasty Minstrel Games. We host another virtual paper-rock-scissor cage-match to determine the winner of Vault Wars from Floodgate games, and announce our newest giveaway from our friends at Czech Games Edition. Finally we sit down for a late night chat with our buddies from Boards Alive Podcast.

Brandon is sick, hardware is on the fritz and we are rust as hell - but the show MUST GO ON! We highlight our Christmas break plays and acquisitions. We get another call from our aspiring Scottish intern - Mobley. We have concerns about Mobley, primarily his power hungry nature... We have to figure out a way to knock him down a notch or 3! Our new years resolution is to do more giveaways on the show, and we've partnered with our buddies at Floodgate Games to bring an awesome giveaway to our listeners - that starts now! We visit with Paul Grogan from Gaming-Rules.com to learn more about teaching games and we pick his brain on Codenames, Vlaada Chvatil. We follow this discussion up with our Codenames review and wrap up the show handing out our awards for "Game of the Year".
Brandon is Sick (Sorry!) - Hardware Meltdown - Christmas Plays and Acquisitions - The logistics around a Scottish Intern are daunting - Mobley has no love for our rating system - Giveaways galore! - Interview with Paul Grogan - Rapid Fire Round - Codenames Review - Our Games of the year!
