This edition of the Board Games Ireland podcast has been a little while in the making but hopefully it acts as a nice little snapshot of BGIcon 2018, our annual Board Game Convention which was held on the 4th of August in the Teacher’s Club. It features a huge range of interviews that were collected on the day.
Frank and Gavin return with a new season of the Board Games Ireland Podcast. Board Games Ireland is a popular meet up group where people can come together and play board games. In this episode we talk a little about what Board Games Ireland does, about what makes contemporary board games different. We also discuss the games: ‘The Mind’, ‘Starship Samurai’, ‘Century: Eastern Wonders’ and ‘Decrypto’. There is also a recording of a live playthrough of the Friday the 13th theme board game ‘Last Friday’ which was recorded on Friday the 13th of July. We also talk about the upcoming BGIcon, the Board Games Ireland game convention which takes place on the 4th of August.
A cheese tainted Gavin and Frank are joined by Sera for the usual discussion of board games. We’re also joined on the phone by Gabriela who talks about the recent Bake Off inspired Board Game Meet up at the Clockwork Door.
Frank and Gavin are back with a humble little podcast for your ear holes.
On this episode we discuss some games we’ve played recently including: Burgle Bros, Swords and Bagpipes and Star Trek Interactive Video Boardgame.
We also talk about the Kickstarter for the game Deadly Premonition. A game based on a video game that was heavily influenced by Twin Peaks. And that led us to look into an official Twin Peaks board game that was released back in the 90s.
Not one but two guests on our first podcast of Space Year 2017.
We chat with David Roe who is one of the original founders of IGA (Irish Games Association) about the growth of tabletop gaming over the years.
We also have Brandon Felczer from Token on. Token is a new venue in Smithfield that is opening next month that is both a bar and a video game arcade. They’ll also have an event room where we can host board game meetups. (Anything we host there will be separate to our current meetups)
