The worlds most aviary focused board game podcast. Indigenous to the eastern shore of the United States, the horned Quackalope can be spotted where board games are played. The ill-suited ornithologists, Jesse Anderson and Jan Bigas, discuss board games on a weekly basis in an effort to catch the elusive bird. Through long winded conversations on mechanics, context, theme and game design, the hosts strive to discover the reason of the Quackalope's fascination with the hobby. Join us at the table and don't forget your binoculars.
