In this episode, Will and Chris have been playing a lot of board games in person: Building castles as corrupt contractors in Caylus, profiteering from unending war in Imperial, and causing disruption of the geriatric spice in The Dice Must Flow. There are also a lot of Korean MMOs and Skyrim with guns without guns. And Mottainai.

In this episode, we discuss the podcast, how it got started, and what our goals are. Most importantly, how do we review games? What is important in a game review? What isn't? Why do we have such strong opinions and how do we decide what those should be? Why don't you have a podcast about games that we can listen to? And Chris rants about any number of things...
