The Tantrum House Board Gaming Podcast features the entire crew from Tantrum House! Four married couples—each with their own distinct board gaming preferences—get together each week to talk about board games that are coming to Kickstarter, games that have arrived in the mail, and ones they are looking forward to playing again soon. They cover topics like how to build up your local board gaming community, how to get your game onto Kickstarter, and pretty much every other hobby topic under the ...
 
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.
 
Cubes have come to the No Cube Zone! It's a time of dismay for Coniff, as Jordan and Rippee flood the show with cube ridden games. Don't worry, we're still talking our experiences and the people we've shared them with, things just may have taken a slight euro turn. The No Cube Zone is full of laughs, banter, and an easy going look at the games we love to play.

A new list of a hundred games to draft, and it only gets harder and harder. We're each picking a standalone collection of five games in a snake draft format.

We love all of the emails we get from you, our lovely listeners, but without a regular mail segment, we can't often give them the attention they deserve. Well that ends right now, as we delve into the long neglected pile of mail, and answer some choice questions that have been waiting patiently for answers. Before we rustle in the mailbag, we talk …
 
We're always excited for a new Eric Lang game, which makes him an obvious candidate for the absolutely-not-called BGB DOG - our series where we deep dive into a designer's .... designography. He's made a lot of our favourite area control games, and had his hand in some games we might not have even realized. Before we bang on about this Lang mang, w…

There is one unenviable truth of board game ownership that we're forced to contend with - they occupy space. We've each had to wrestle with this reality in different ways recently, so we offer our thoughts on the awkwardness of sharing a physical world with our board games. Before we merely exist, we talk about Riftforce, Kabuto Sumo, and Whirling …

While one of the appeals of following a specific game designer is the comforting familiarity of what they do best, it’s also really fun to see them go off the garden path. We’re looking at games and mechanics where one of our beloved designers zigged, when they easily could’ve zagged. Before we go our own way, we talk about Biosphere, The Ratcatche…

One of the things we love to do, especially if we're playing a game for the first time, is analyse it while we're playing. We're sure this totally isn't annoying for those around us. In particular, we love picking apart little mechanical choices, imagining what the designer's thought process was, and wondering "why is that like that?" Before we get…

Sometimes, if you want a game bad enough, you're willing to go to absurd lengths to acquire it. Whether it's because it's out of print, or just hard to come by, we've all put more effort than we should've into finding or playing specific games. We tell our stories of just how far we've gone. Before we secure the bag, we talk about Tinner's Trail, a…

We all have types of games that, for whatever reason, we steer clear of. Often all that we've been missing is a more suitable introduction to the genre, or a game that's just enough of an outlier. This week, we try to tempt you toward genres that you might have written off, with the games that may just sway you. Before we change your minds, we talk…
