Inconsistently enjoyable

Some episodes fall flat for me but it’s a decent listen

It’s a struggle

Trying to listen again, it’s still a struggle to be honest. Great podcast concept for the regular board gamer. It’s just a shame they seem to just bumble along talking and shouting random nonsense. If only they calmed down a bit

Music_Junkee!! ,

Great listen.

Great content from a couple who clearly love board gaming. Unlike some podcasts, this isn’t aimed at hardcore gamers, and full of hard to understand jargon and concepts. Can be a bit hectic at the start, but this adds to the charm. Only problem is, I now have an obsession with the clever games (GanzSchön, Doppelt and Hoch Drei) after listening to them both rave about GanzSchön so much!
