One of my favorites

They don’t just provide awesome board game reviews, they’re also actively supporting inclusiveness in the board game community.

LoloHusky ,

Big fan, hoping for better audio balance

Great high energy podcast for fans of board games. I love the short format where only a few games and one topic is usually covered. Keeps the discussion focused and never drags. Only criticism is that audio balance has always been an issue. Intro/outright is really loud compared to the regular conversation. Crystals mix has always been clearer and louder, Ambie’s mic always sounds a little muffled and lower volume than Crystal.

New to Blitz!

Just started listening, but love the quick yet concise reviews and hijinks!
