    100 Games in 100 Days w/ David Guthrie

    100 Games in 100 Days w/ David Guthrie

    Anything is possible if you just start doing it. That's what Jake and Becca learn when they chat with David Guthrie aka "gameylannister" who recently achieved the lofty goal of playing BGG's top 100 games in 100 days. Sure, it sounds insane, but if you really stop and think about what it means to play a complex strategy game every single day for 3+ months... It sounds EVEN MORE insane.

Fun Podcast

A fun podcast with a lot of great “peek behind the curtain” moments as Becca has access to lots of interesting characters from the world of board gaming. A perfect companion to the other board game podcast I listen to from Shut Up & Sit Down, as a less introspective podcast.

A broad board games podast!

A great podcast about board games but also a little bit of life in there as well. Great guests with different experiences and you get a good incite to life behind the games as well as what we’re all thinking about in this crazy world we live in right now. Thank you Becca!
