Ep. 33 - Turning Video Games into Board Games This weeks topic is essentially part 2 from last weeks episode, where we talked about should tabletop games be digital. Through the course of that discussion, we had started thinking about what are some video games that we enjoy, that we would think could turn into good board games, and what are some that have done it successfully. Join us as we look to dive further into the topic!

Ep. 32 - Should All Tabletop Games be Digital? Today's topic is a relatively simple and straightforward question. Should all tabletop games be digital? Basically asking the question should there be a digital version of every tabletop game? As we continue to progress technologically as a society, the way we experience "games" is going to be constantly evolving. There's a lot of different ways to think about this topic, and we discuss. Hope you enjoy!

Ep. 31 - What Makes a Card Game a Card Game? This is a topic we've been thinking about for a bit, and it wanted to bring it to you all, our amazing audience. As tabletop gamers, we often find ourselves typically gravitating towards strategic card games. We've never really thought too much about it, but the question has come up before, why do we enjoy these card games so much? We've talked at length about that specific topic before (see episode 20). But we've never really dove into this topic before. On the surface, it seems like a simple answer...a card game is a game where cards are involved 😅. However, in todays market, with so many different types of games out there, it is so much more involved than there just being cards in a game to be considered "a card game." Hope you enjoy our discussion.

Ep. 29 - Digital Card Games Today we talk all about digital card games, and some of our favorites that we've played. Monday, Cryptozoic Entertainment announced a new digital card game coming to the market in 2022 called DC Dual Force. That announcement sparked the idea of talking about this topic, and we haven't really dove into the topic before this. We've merely scratched the surface. Today we're really digging into it. Additionally, there's a lot of things happening behind the scenes here at hobbies + happiness we want you to aware of, so we talk about that too! Hope you enjoy!

Ep. 27 - Skill & RNG in Tabletop and Card Games Today we talk about a topic that we've touched on somewhat in the past, and that is the relationship of skill and RNG when it comes to tabletop and card games. RNG stands for random number generator, or random number game. Card games are really where this discussion has the most impact, as card games typically have more to do with randomness than other types of games. Especially when games get more competitive, does this topic come up, as higher skilled players eliminate as much randomness as possible from the game they are playing. But what about when the game consists almost entirely of randomness? We discuss the topic in this episode.
