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.

BGTG 36A - All About Verräter (with Greg Aleknevicus - Part 1)

You can tell from the date that I've had this show recorded for a week already. The "All About" shows are often my most well-regarded . . . by both my listeners and myself! So you know I didn't want to sit on this one, especially for one of my favorite games. However, the quality of the sound recording meant that I had to work a little harder to fix this one up. I hope you're able to hear it ok, because both Greg's The Games Journal and Verräter are worth the attention.

I split the recording into two parts due to its length. This first, smaller part includes the interview with Greg about both himself and The Games Journal.

Great show. Sound quality was a little disappointing, but kudos to Mark's continual attempts to try new formats and approaches.

It was great to hear Greg's voice. I was surprised by his comments concerning the lack of feedback to The Games Journal. I always had the impression (from http://www.thegamesjournal.com/letters/Sept2005.shtml etc) that it had quite a good volume of feedback. I'll have to send some more in. ;-)

A quick comment for Greg that you may also get a kick out of, Mark: I do read The Games Journal regularly. I built a customized AvantGo channel and have The Games Journal synchronized to my Palm handheld. It can be a touch rough to read sometimes, as the formatting is (obviously) not customized for that device, but it's nice to have it with me when I have the opportunity to read an article or two.

It's sort of ironic that Greg discussed the challanges facing The Games Journal in this episode before deciding to close down. Maybe talking about the new environment prodded the decision along. Whatever the case, the archives of TGJ remain valuable, and the gaming community will miss one of its pioneering web publications.
