Competitive Partners

Clearly Kelly and I enjoy playing games together and I strongly advocate it as a good hobby for couples - certainly co-op games can help with cooperation and discussion skills.

But what happens when things get competitive and when its not just the two of you? Even in competitive games there is sometimes chances for temporary alliances and surely if you are playing with your spouse you would side with them...

This week we are discussing how all is not fair in love and war and how gaming with your partner in a group of other players changes the dynamic.

We also discuss some of the games we  have been playing this week including a session report from our latest game of BSG, an old favourite, Biblios and two new games to us World Championship Russian Roulette and Rising Sun.

To hear more from us follow us on social media, we are on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. For more great podcasts check out


  1. I "suffer" slightly in that my wife isn't a gamer - but it's hardly a major imposition.

    I think that what you said about leaving high emotions in the game is important with anyone you're likely to see again, not just with domestic partners.

    Incidentally, I know you've got all sorts of social-media presences, but if you'd like some forum space dedicated to the show I'd be happy to set something up at (Discourse software, no ads). Just let me know.



    1. Thanks Roger I'm not 100% sure what that is, but if its something that we could link the site too that would be interesting!

  2. If somebody wants expert take on the main topic of blogging next I advise him/her to go to this site, continue the fussy job.

    Wow, this article is good, I am going to let know her. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
