Mentioned in Dispatches Season 11 Ep 9 ~ The Annual Compass Catalog Cavalcade of Whimsy

17 November 2023

We’re a little behind on getting this one recorded & released, but our annual deep dive into the Compass Catalog is here!  Brant, Mike, Mike, and (eventually) Jim take their time going through the catalog and pick out the games they want, the ones they have, and the ones they’re trying to figure out the raison d’etre.

Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.

So join the crew as we go, literally, page by page through the catalog, question the existence of some games, sing the praises of others, try to do math in our heads on discounts, rankle at shipping costs and plan a game smuggling ring using airline couriers, and wonder why Jim hates solo games1.  Have fun as a bunch of old dudes2 celebrate a form of media whose heyday is clearly behind us, but that these guys can’t get enough of.

Even after all these years, we still need a few reviews short of iTunes recommending us in their podcast engine, and every rating helps.  Thanks!
