This episode was DEMANDED by the entire Board Game Snobs Community, and let me tell you, that guy was super annoying. Gaby and Jerry join us to talk about... ...honestly I have no idea. We played a couple of game shows, one by Dan and one by Jerry.  We talked about Jerry living in an area known primarily for death. We proposed ridiculous insurance claim scenarios for Gaby. Dan talked about windshield screens, whatever those are. I'm sure I talked about stuff. Also, Jerry got progressively more affected by all the Kentucky Derbys. All this, plus we almost talked about board games. Co-Starr ..read more

After the multimedia extravaganza that was Episode 100, we keep the fireworks going by inviting first time guest and first time designer Carl Robinson. Carl has designed Kelp, a two-player asymmetrical game that offers players a unique opportunity to delve into the natural world of Pyjama Sharks and Common Octopuses, set in a South African kelp forest. Those were absolutely my words alone, and not a cut and paste from Board Game Geek. In addition to discussing the story behind that game, Dan, Carl and Mike have a wide ranging conversation that includes, but isn't limited to: Dan's impressions ..read more

Episode 99. You know how sometimes when there's some kind of big numerical milestone looming on a podcast, the episode just before it is a lackluster placeholder type of episode? Well, we were going to do that but Gaby was unavailable, so instead Dan and I come to you with this episode that is chock full of spicy, saucy, sassy, succulent, spectacular content. Also, lots of poop talk.   Tune in to hear... A BRAND NEW game that Dan actually prepared beforehand! A new segment called, "Talkin' Beer Here with Dan Hughes" Where Dan formulates his ideas. Duty Free Shops, and their infringement ..read more

Episode 97! Three away from a major milestone. Although as we've said in the past, that number is slightly suspect in the sense that every one of our episodes is at least 4 times the length of our "peers". Also, we pack more into a single episode than our "peers" will in a year. Speaking of packing it in, in this episode we cover: Pirate Dads Sweet, Sweet New Merchandise and Logo Gen Con Preview Discussion Educating Evan Hughes on classic games Chest Hair I'd like to see our "peers" cover that amount of material in their "shows". And that's not even mentioning our audience favorite "Brown Br ..read more

On this episode, Dan and Mike discuss: The lie that is castor sugar. Why Dan's scones taste tangier than they should. The relationship between game designers and publishers. Also, we have a very special guest aboard: Kirsten Lunde! Kirsten discusses her upcoming symphony themed board game, Ovatio ..read more

Well, it's that time again. The time when all board game podcasts are pitted against each other in a no holds barred competition of bloodsport. Remember Bloodsport? With Claude Van Damme? They called him "The Muscles From Brussels". I digress. It's Golden Geek Awards time! While we like to be self-deprecating here at Sporadically Board, the truth is that Dan and I are proud that we've been able to keep this endeavor going for as many years as we have, and we still very much enjoy doing it. If you, our faithful listeners, still enjoy listening we'd be very appreciative if you would go to Board ..read more
