Perfect Information Podcast Episode 45 – Semiotics, Taxonomy, Dice

Before you outgrabe any uffishness, or worse get gimbled in any of the general frabjousity… make sure to listen to this week’s topic all about genre in board games. We will talk about the terms we use, their meaning (ambiguous as it is) and the words that our hobby may or may not still lack to figure out just what kind of game we’re playing. Or want to.

T.C. Petty III. (40:13) uses his magic words to make the complexity of playtesting seem easy. Like juggling three live octopi while riding a unicycle. Through a hail storm. Listening to Skrillex.

Unexpected changes await us in the guild (54:56) and some of us have an easier time dealing with them than others. But we manage to still talk about what causes aggression in you or your games. 

This week’s review takes into Hungary’s past (at least figuratively… ludically?) with Days of Ire: Budapest 1956. An Essen release that almost flew under our radar, until it landed on our table with enough noise… to make us want to make noise on this podcast about it. Find out why from 1:19:37 onwards.

And finally, let us give you some gentle reminders about our podcast before you finally go to bed. You’re all listening to this in bed, I assume? (01:53:18)
