Episode 39 - Glitches Get Stitches
So we've all been there right? You're about to record a long overdue podcast and you know it's gonna go smoothly because you bought new equipment to replace the old equipment that had replaced the other older equipment. I mean this should go well. Did you read the manual for this equipment? Hell no we didn't because it's super simple plug-n-play baby! So I'll cut to the chase and tell ya that Lee's audio is a bit weird in this otherwise cracking episode. I clicked on what sounded to me like a really cool setting and it pretty much wrecked her mic the whole time. But it was salvageable and I wouldn't want you to miss us talk about such awesome games as; Fast Sloths, Terraforming Mars, 5211, The European Birds expansion for Wingspan, Viticulture: Digital Edition, Stop Thief!, Egizia: Shifting Sands & believe it or not many more! Plus some grumpy ranting and our usual shenanigans! So just imagine Leeandra is actually inside of a German U-Boat and phoning in on a tin can with a reeeeeally long string and you'll enjoy this one just fine.

Hi and welcome back to our masterclass series: Teaching Board Games For Masochists! We've all been in this situation right?

If by upset you mean they attempt to burrow into your very soul with eyes so hot you feel as if you are staring into the brimstone coals of Satan's very testicles? Then yes, they get upset.
