Customer Reviews

Elric13579222 ,

My favourite board games podcast

After listening to over 10 different board game podcasts, this is the one I look forward to most. Mature, witty, down to earth. The guys could be talking about anything really and I’d still tune in. Long may this continue!

We're Not Wizards ,

The 2nd Best Tabletop Podcast in the World.

Well now that Rory is on the show, the who is my favourite question can finally be put to bed..

DuffDuncs ,

4 1/2 Stars!

This is a great tabletop gaming podcast that routinely covers news and updates about the industry and hobby, as well as what the hosts have been playing recently. There’s plenty of banter and humour too. They bleep out the worst bits but be prepared for some adult language. If I was being really picky I’d be happier if they could tone it down; it’s not a podcast I can listen to with the children around, which is a bit of a shame as they’re really interested.
