A monthly podcast dedicated to the history, evolution, present state, and future potential of our favorite board games.

Episode 2 - One vs. Many Games

August 31, 2018

Just in time for Dragon*Con, or PAX West, or the NOVA Open, or just a long holiday weekend of board games, it's The Ascent of Board Games - Episode 2! (And they said it would never happen again...)

This month we're talking about one-versus-many games, wherein one player smashes a bottle against the bar and says, "C'mon, I'll take on all of you at once!" (Metaphorically, in most cases.) I think we were all a bit surprised at how far back this type of game goes; hopefully you'll enjoy listening to what we learned.

As usual, we'd love to hear what you think - please drop us a line via any (or all!) of the following methods:

And if you have the time to give us a review on iTunes (, it would really help us in our efforts to reach more listeners.
