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.

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.

In this episode we get our 4x gaming on. Session reports on games set on land and in space.
Also, if a game falls in the forest and there's no one there to play it, is it a game? Our first and last segment in the ongoing series we call Non-existent Games.

If you want some takes on what's new in the board gaming hobby, this is not the episode you're looking for.
However, if you want to hear some tales of adventure in the gloaming of the pandemic, and a discussion about the state of the hobby as we see it (Told through Arkwright eyes), then come on in.

The rock came rolling back down and crushed us for a good part of the Summer. We got some levers and some rails and we've managed to push it back up the hill far enough to breathe a little. So, here we be, talking about life and games again.

Chirping birds. Barking Dogs. Screaming Children.
Yes, we're back outside to record this episode. The pops and clicks of the previous effort replaced by the flora and fauna of mid-Spring. We weave in and out of various topics, creating some loose connections and trying to show that nothing occurs in a vacuum.

This is us, as you might find us should you wander into a watering hole where we might be holding court at the bar.
This could very well be a prime example of the conversation you might stumble upon.
The nature of this conversation spirals around, over and through the games and topics, so timestamps have been kept to a minimum.

Hey kids, it's No-fun February, 2021 edition. And this February has been the most No-fun in years.
We've got your ice storms and power outages and never-ending pandemics and Criminal Orange-men still on the loose. All that and so much more.
However, rebels that we are, we try and make something out of this mess and talk some games, both video and board. We discuss some music and get back on track with the books. And yeah, yeah, we also gripe about and question everything else under the pandemic soaked sun. We are who we are after all.
Welcome to the fun-house! Enjoy all the mirrors.

As 2021 seems an awful lot like 2020 we are still finding the time and energy to get some games to tables, both virtual and physical. And these games are surprising, entertaining and frustrating us in the ways they always do. Here are some stories about those games.
Some things change (someday) and the rest stays the same.

It took us two tries to get this one right. Well, right might be too strong of a word. Lets swap that for recorded. Yeah, we finally got the episode recorded. I mean, right, ha, probably more like wrong, but you know how it is.
Anyway, on with the show.
