Australian Board Gaming at its representiest

These three Tasmanians do a great job of informing us all about all things board and card gaming. A must listen every week.

Drayven ,

An essential listen for board game content.

If you’re interested in tabletop gaming, I can think of no better podcast to listen to than Australia’s The Dice Men Cometh.
Mark, Garth, and Leon bring their enthusiasm and expertise to a range of board, card, dice, and role playing games.
Their unflinching dedication to finding the best games, and their no nonsense demeanour leave me well informed on the latest games as well as the occasional dive into an older classic.
Even when we disagree about a game, they provide enough detail in their reviews that I know whether I would like something they didn’t or vice versa.
Even better, they manage all this in under an hour every week.

Great podcast - better than most US podcasts. Not bad for a bunch of old men. ;-) entertaining & informative.
