Punching Cardboard

A very lively discussion. The reading habits of Toddlers. Some music that may be genius or insanity. And we play a board game, twice.

Welcome to the first episode of the Punching Cardboard offshoot, reboot, retread, much dreaded new series PC/DC: Beyond the Cardboard. More of an indroductory session to let you know what we plan to offer in the coming months. We hope your onboard for this next phase. I think the ride might get wild.

This was supposed to be episode 209, with some game analysis, an idiot box recommendation and some isights into music and community. I didn't like the results. It didn't really feel of any value to do things as I would have when Punching Cardboard was in it's prime. After re-recording several times I realized there was no getting around the fact that the show as it existed was finished. 

Hence, here we are, in the Whiskey for the end of  . . .  format that I adopted at the beginning of the dark times. This feels more genuine, and after 208 episodes, it seems like the best way to end the original show.

You were warned. We threatened it numerous times over the past eight-plus years. Well, it's finally happened. This episode is board game free. Not game free, mind you, but no cardboard was used in the making of this episode.

Is Elden Ring the be all, end all? Listen in and find out. A little music to close things out as well.

Punching Carboard Lineup, MK IV. Better known as the solo acoustic tour. Just Jim here; the only one left after the smoke cleared.

In this episode is an in-depth look at Atlantic Chase, games that earned "10s" and some music recs, including an overlooked list from 2021. A few asides along the way, but that's the meat of the program.

As that's the case, no timestamps deemed necessary. You're an intelligent bunch.
