Get your canoes, rafts, pontoons, and other sundry river vessels ready, because on this episode of the Dog and Thimble Podcast, we're talking about The River from Days of Wonder. But that's not all, we've got detours for weird mountain relationships, experiential dining establishments, opinions on apples, and Chris singing. Check it out!
Sometimes you find yourself on an island, beset by exploding volcanoes, rolling boulders, venomous snakes, swarms of bees, and people in tiger costumes jumping at you seemingly from nowhere. If you want all of those things to happen at once, then you should really be playing Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar. If you're not sure that those things are your jam, then check out this week's episode of the Dog and Thimble podcast where we talk all about the game, its expansions, and somehow also find time for a discussion of Street Fighter, Ultimate Frisbee, and The Girl From Ipanema.
Did we save another classic episode from the hungry maw of Audacity? #Youbetyoursweetbippy we did! This episode has everything, the worst version of the Wonder Twins, residential advisers shooting airsoft guns, a very forward Mae West, and stuff that only 90's kids will remember! Not to mention the extensive discussion about the Choose Your Own Adventure: House of Danger board game. Strap in and keep track of your page number, because you're not gonna want to miss this episode!
Every once in a while, a podcast comes along that's unafraid to ask the difficult questions. Questions like, what is porridge and why is Clamato juice a thing? Today's episode of Dog and Thimble is that podcast. Also, we're mostly discussing the 2018 offering from designer Tim Armstrong and publisher Space Cowboy Games, Orbis.
