11 | NMBR 9 (THS GM S FN)

The best way to highlight how we feel about NMBR 9 is we decided to buy it about halfway through our first play with a friend’s copy. At least two other friends we have introduced it to have also gone out and purchased their own. So I guess don’t listen to this episode if you’re in the middle of a board game buying moratorium. But seriously, it’s easy to see what’s so appealing about NMBR 9 – it’s a fun puzzle with rules that can be explained in one minute and a play time of around 10 minutes. If you like Tetris, you’ll love this game. If you don’t like Tetris, you’ll still probably like this game. And even if you don’t… 10 minutes.

Also in this episode, we drink a tasty “big, bold Cabernet” (finally) and discuss some recent plays including Keyflower, Agricola, and Downforce.

Lastly, we’re heading to Dice Tower Con! If you’re there, look us up… we’d love to meet you and maybe play a game.

10 | Board Game Getaways (Fireflies, Dice Rolls, and Train Games)

We love our weekly game group, and we love winding down our day with a two player board game before bed. However, there’s just something special about getting away for a long weekend of board gaming with friends.

In this week’s show, Josh gives a recap of his gaming getaway weekend in the mountains. Games discussed this week include Magic Maze, Century: Spice Road, NMBR 9, Dominant Species, Caylus, Vinhos, 1846: A Race for the Midwest, Gaia Project, and Space Base. Oh, and also Craps!

In addition, we talk generally about why we love packing up the car with our favorite board games for some extended gaming time with friends. Enjoy!
