Episode 30 - Games with Changing Boards

January 1, 2021

Happy New Year! Congratulations on surviving 2020 with enough mental fortitude to listen to a podcast about board games! To celebrate the (hopefully positive) change in the calendar, we're talking about games where the board changes as you play. You'll hear us say things like:

  • "Sometimes you just wanna go punch your friends in the face."
  • "In 2003, Mayfair Games produced a tiny little bundle of hate."
  •  "Yahtzee, with punching." (I'm sensing a theme here...)
  • "Hey Culligan Man!"

Other items of interest in this episode include:

As always, we appreciate your listening and would love to hear your comments on any or all of these items, and especially a review on iTunes if you have the time and inclination!
