You crack the cellophane wrapping off your latest board game acquisition and dive into the bits with an immeasurable amount of exuberance. The fresh smell of new plastic and cardboard envelopes you as you unpack each tiny package within the box. Like a child on Christmas, a smile is plastered on your face as you feast your eyes over your new prized possession.

Hello gamers! And welcome to another episode of A Place at the Table. We’ve had a nice little break as my household finished up summer and got back into the swing of things for the newest year of homeschooling for Peep and Stormageddon.

We have a couple that we pull out when we have larger groups of people over, but when it is just Number One and me at the house, we stick with non-co-op games.
There are some things that I like about co-op games and some things that I don’t like about them.Continue reading

Dear Board Game Diary,
I’ve met many through our Game Night meetups from all walks of life. It would seem that board games are the nondiscriminatory glue that binds us all. I’m reminded of this upon meeting these gamers as I get to know them more on a personal level.Continue reading
Well, hello there, gamers! I hope the weekend treated you well and that you had a chance to play some board games. Today’s subject is podcasts. Yes, podcasts. As a member of the Xennial generation, podcasts are a part of my everyday life. I may not listen to them every single day, but Number One does, and he shares with me the things that he listens to. As you may know, there are podcasts for just about every interest under the sun. Board games are no exception! There are a variety of board game podcasts available for you to listen to.Continue reading
We are going to do something a little different with this installment of Coming Soon. We are coming into the Labor Day weekend which we decided to throw an end of the summer party for all the gamers in the group. This will include a little giveaway of 10 different games!
