This Board Game Life is back with the first episode of 2014. The holidays are over and now it’s time for gaming!

In this show, Rob starts off with a discussion on randomness in games. Are games with randomness representative of real life where seemingly random things happen all the time?

Then the discussion changes to talk about some games. This includes A Study in Emerald, Straw, Uno Attack, and finally two Grecian games Among the Stars and Archon Glory and Machination.

Rob went to Omaha in December and was able to stop at two of the local game stores.

For the 20 Shows Ago segment we go back to May 2012 and provide some updates on the games talked about back then.

Then finally on the Game Lust segment there’s only one title at the moment. Enjoy the show!!!
