Cult of the new... to me

Before we start, this weeks pillow talk topic was completely stolen from a blog post I recently read, by Dave Roy. Go check it out here (and the rest of his blog "Dude, Take Your Turn").

In his article he discusses how he doesn't really feel like he belongs to the "Cult of the New" - that brand of board gamer that keeps up with all the latest releases and only plays the new hotness, but instead reserves his excitement for board games he has recently discovered regardless if they were released in 2017 or 1977 (Cosmic Encounter anyone?)

Having limited funds, I definitely find myself a member of this cult and a happy one at that. I can get all the thrill and excitement of playing a new game, but know that it must be good enough to have stood the test of time.. something I could not guarantee if I only purchased new releases.

We explore this concept and discuss what might make a gamer crave new games and also why might we want to play old favourites.



As always we also discuss what we played in the week including old classics Survive Escape from Atlantis, Incan Gold and Harry Potter Clue(do); and so-new-its-not-been-released yet Blank.

Until next week catch up with us on social media - just use the links at the bottom of the page to find us, or if you want to find more great board gaming podcasts checkout insidevoicesnetwork.com.
