Hello everyone, we’re back! We apologize for the delay, but hope to make it up to you with a very special episode: our full recap of WashingCon 3. It was a fantastic convention this year, like every year, and we have so much to cover. We start off with our impressions of the con as a whole, from the people we talked to to the games we played. After that we run through a few excerpts from the various panels. And finally, no WashingCon would be complete without a massive game of Two Rooms and a Boom.
We hope you enjoy this week’s podcast. Please do stay tuned for even more great audio from the convention, including panels and interviews.

Thank you for listening, and stay tuned for more coverage of WashingCon 3.
Hello again listeners! It’s good to be back. On our latest episode, we review Tides of Time and Tides of Madness. These card drafting, set collection games are easy to play but hard to master. With extremely simple core mechanics and very few components, both are excellent candidates for travel games. Check out the episode for our full impressions.
We also recount the board games we played on our recent trips. Jakub talks about Kodama and a new game called Vye, while Greg talks about an old favorite, Lanterns.
