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

Episode 9 - Dungeon Crawls

April 5, 2019

Phew - we finally made it! Many apologies for the delay in this month's episode, which was primarily due to two factors:

1. It was (and is) our longest episode to date.

2. Brian and Mike were both suffering from colds, and every time they inhaled, it sounded like Darth Vader had joined the show. (We did our best to edit all of that out - sorry if any of our death-rattles slipped through.)

We promise to be back on schedule next month!

This episode, we strap on our broadswords and delve into the torchlit world of dungeon crawl games. Among other things, we learn that the podcast's Joe quotient is rather higher than previously believed...
