In this, our most banter-heavy and scattershot episode to date, Travis and Tiffany discuss some positive and not-so-positive board game convention experiences, a big time celebrity stops by - not on the actual podcast, but during a convention story - and we delve into, skirt around, ramble about, and ultimately dismiss entirely the notion of "gateway games." Along the way we mention several board games in passing, including Ticket to Ride, Powergrid, Istanbul, Grand Austria Hotel, Catan, Settlers of Catan, and of course everyone's favorite game: Monopoly. As if that wasn't enough, we provide incorrect information about the Beverly Hillbillies, retheme The Gift of the Magi as a boardgame parcel mix up, and Tiffany contemplates composing a moving poem...
In this long overdue episode, Tiffany and Travis discuss Grand Austria Hotel and argue about how it is similar to and different from working at an actual hotel. Plus Tiffany dubs Matthew Jude the Patron Saint of Board Games and we inexplicably have an in depth discussion about Corey Feldman and Corey Haim movies. Enjoy!
In this episode, Tiffany and Travis play a couple of rounds of Dungeons and Dragons madlibs and talk a bit about game weight, Wingspan, and Grand Austria Hotel. We also move our chairs around way too much and I (Travis) make two editing errors that are more egregious than usual. Can you spot them?
Grab your favorite adult beverage, pull up an earbud, and listen to Travis and Tiffany discuss the award winning games Wingspan and Hive! Additionally, you will learn what an apiarist does, roughly what size bird you could defeat with a small plastic hexagon, and how to create a brand new alcoholic drink that we predict will be all the rage!
Most of this footage was recorded at the same time that we recorded our first episode - actually there are at least four distinct recordings here all cobbled together into one Franken-episode - and it's (mostly) all about the game Innovation. So sit back, relax, grab a cold one, and have a listen as Travis and Kaleb gush about one of their favorite games of all time!
Snuggle up by the fire with your significant other and/or your favorite boardgame, grab an adult beverage, and listen as Tiffany and Travis discuss ther top five games that they enjoy playing with one another!
Tune in to episode six of the Top O' The Table Podcast and learn firsthand why Travis and Tiffany aren't city planners as we discuss Sprawlopolis from Button Shy Games. Keep listening to discover why we are also not professional cyclists as we discuss Flamme Rouge from Lautapelit.fi. Also learn why the intro to our podcast might sound familiar to you. Finally, since we are now proud members of The Gateway Network we talk about that and give a shout out to The Charity Boardgamer.
At last, the long awaited second installment of our discussion about Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. Join Travis and Kaleb as they talk about what new class features they like, new spells, new organizations, puzzles, and how to deal with that player that cheats when rolling up his or her character.
In this episode, Kaleb and Travis barely keep things on the rails as they attempt to discuss Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. They make a noble effort and get a decent start before Travis has to tap out, and they vow to return and finish tackling Tasha's Cauldron in a second episode
