Heavy Cardboard? Yeah, we think it succinctly defines what this site and the podcast is all about…heavy board games and war games. In each episode of the podcast, we will focus our attention on one heavy game to discuss. We’ll share our thoughts and opinions on the game with our listeners. Our intention is not to teach you how to play but to help inform you about the game and hopefully help you decide if a game is one you’d like. Also, each episode will include shorter discussions on at least two other games, what games we’ve recently acquired or are playing, BGG lists and…life in general.
We encourage you to give us feedback about the site and the podcast, we’re doing this for fun but we hope to be helpful and entertaining for our listeners. So, with that, onto the discussions about heavy cardboard!
Heavy Cardboard is humbled and thrilled to have been a BGG Nominee for Best Board Game Podcast in both of our first 2 years: 2014 & 2015. Congrats all of the nominees and especially to the winners!
Last episode was all about newer games, so to balance the scales, we’re taking it back to 2004 (and 2014) in our featured review when we tackle the tried & true classic, Saint Petersburg! We also pay our respects to John Henry in our trailer of Martin Wallace’s 2008, Steel Driver. And just in time to help folks decide whether to back (or not) the Kickstarter, we take on Yokohama in the second trailer. Oh and did we mention that we welcome back Tony (on a quarterly basis) to the show?😉
