I just caught up on the podcast, and I wanted to say I didn't find this segment entertaining. Yeah, it's a card game, but Rick clearly is enthusiastic about it and he had something worthwhile to say. The 'douchey' behavior got in the way. I would have enjoyed it better if Rick had done the segment by himself.
Fair enough. My sense of humor doesn't appeal to everyone.
Just to clarify, my thinking wasn't to slam Rick, who is a fantastic game reviewer (and the show wouldn't be what it is without him) - but to keep people listening who may have otherwise tuned out if it were simply 45 minutes of uninterrupted card game talk.
Perhaps I got a little carried away. As I said, it wasn't really planned out, it just sort of happened. But a big part of our show is good natured / sarcastic ribbing, so I don't imagine people were taken aback by it.
