The R&R Show #41 - Top 100 Games (20-11)
Ruel and I get together for another 10 games in our t100 countdown, and oh man are these games great! (no surprise considering where we are on the list). My biggest surprise was that Ruel snagged some of my faves for himself!

The R&R Show #39 - Top 100 Games (40-31)
Folks, no worries about the opening where I talk about my extreme dizziness for the last few days... doc says it's BPPV and very treatable. I posted more about it at the guild.rahdo.com as ruel promised, and now on with the show! :)

RTT Update
just a quick recording to let everyone know that while i accidentally took the podcast offline last night right after I uploaded the latest roundup, it's all fixed now so you can get back to listening! :)

April 2022 Roundup EXTENDED EDITION
Alright folks, last month I tried out including the extended edition of the monthly round up, where i do some additional stuff and you get more behind the scenes raw rahdo (for lack of a better term). I thought maybe this wouldn't work because one of the things I do in these extended eps is unbox stuff, which isn't great to listen to maybe? BUT it seems last month that over half of you chose the extended edition. But hey, that was the first try... you didn't know what you were getting into. Let's try again and this time you'll know what to expect, and I'll check the stats to see if you came back for more. One other thing, I had some technical difficulties at the start of this stream... mic quit again, which is why things start out a bit weird! :)
02:16:40
May 03, 2022
April 2022 Roundup
Okay, the 10th anniversary month is over, and here's what we played during said month! :) Also, no one commented one way or the other if they wanted to keep the extended version of the roundups in the feed, but the stats say that the majority of folks preferred the extended edition. So that's back now too! :)
59:54
May 03, 2022
The R&R Show #38 EXTENDED EDITION
In addition to talking crowdfunding games, this week we do a tough top 3, ruel reveals a never before seen side of himself, and i mess everything up on the recording schedule! :)

Another month, and another big bunch of games to talk about! This time, I'm also posting the full live extended episode from Twitch, so it includes additional Q&A, some unboxings, and other silliness.

02:18:44
April 01, 2022
March 2022 Roundup
24 games this month, a very brief celebratory "we made 10 years" at the end... I should probably make a bigger deal about such a big milestone, but that's just not me! NOTE: this month i'm also experimenting with putting the longer EXTENDED EDITION up as well on the feed. Let me know if that's a problem or a good thing :)

March 23, 2022
The R&R Show #33 - Top 10 Games We'd BUY RIGHT NOW! :)
There's a huge sale on at show sponsor funagain's website this week, so ruel and i figured we'd take a quick scan of the 400 or so games and come up with our top10 must haves, and as always we've come up with something old, something new, and so forth!  :)
