Boardgames To Go was one of first boardgame podcasts, starting in March 2005. It's still going strong, now relocated to Boardgamegeek. Meanwhile the old posts are archived here. The audio files of the podcast were unchanged by this, and you shouldn't even notice the change on your MP3 player.

If you're here for the March 2005-June 2012 archives, have fun with the archeology. :-)

Otherwise, please follow me over to the new blog and associated guild, which should make it easier than ever to subscribe to the podcast, spark a discussion with other listeners, and keep the communication going with me. I've got the best listeners of all, and I appreciate your feedback.



Mark Johnson's occasional & opinionated podcast about family strategy boardgames

BGTG - July 5, 2005 - SR: Smarty Party Jr., Attacktix, Geschenkt, Oceania

Once again I included my son Sam on the podcast. This show is an audio session report for some games played with family over the 4th of July holiday weekend. So it's got some angst about getting family to play the sort of games I like, trying to pick things they like, and then worrying about how well they went over. :)

Be sure to vote on the new logos using the webpoll in my right sidebar. Thanks!

Both logos look great! I figured the iPod logo would be the "run away" favorite. I mean, this a Podcast, right? Just goes to show... "Different strokes for different folks."

The logos aren't showing properly at http://boardgamestogo.com/2005/07/bgtg-july-5-2005-sr-smarty-party-jr.html - if you look at the HTML I am sure you will see why. ;-)

Great Episode! It's very interesting to hear Sam's perspective on the games that you guys play. Good stuff!

Great episode like always!

I thought I should explain why its easy to believe LEMONS are not commonly eaten fruit around the world - They don't grow everywhere!

For example, in Latin and South America lemons are incredibly rare. Instead, Limes are used as a replacement. (Weirdly, Limes are called Lemons in these areas.)

Ok...if you say so. But it's easy to suppose the rest of the game has an American-centric view of trivia, so the lemon omission still feels weird!
