Perfect Information Podcast Episode 24 – Board Games’ Age of Pygmalion

Quo vadis Bling?

In this week’s magnanimous episode your esteemed hosts review the newest release of Artipia Games/Stronghold Games, aptly named The Pursuit of Happiness (1:17:32).

But before we get there, Nick Mariner invites us to a brief sojourn in the realm of ludological solitude as he pontificates on solo games (1:04:15).

Which you will hear just after our quick stop at the guild (40:48), where we not only get to the latest update on the musical prodigy that is Tension & Release (and mouth harp), but we also address our listeners’ (that means you, yes, you reading this right now) insightful contributions to the question of gaming masterpieces.

But do not skip ahead just yet, for you will miss a dazzling lecture on the How of Writing Rules by design luminary T.C. Petty III (28:31). Yes, he of Flowing Hair Championship fame 2004, 2007 and 2012. He also casually threw out games like Xenon Profiteer. But that hair… oh my.. that hair!

And you will get to all that, just after you’ve listened to the opening topic of this week’s episode: the beautification of boardgames. A sign of things to come? And will they herald a new age of playful joy (yes!) or a devolution into childishness (boo!)?
