A New Favorite!
I listed to a lot of podcasts in general (historical, political, sports) and many boardgaming podcasts (The Dice Tower, Rahdo Talks Through, Board Game Blitz, Ludology, Board Gmae Top Tens), and I am quite excited that I discovered this one recently. It has a great central concept, how to bring modern board games to more people, people who might think initially that those of us who play some many games, go to conventions, etc. are "losers." I enjoy the two hosts and their many guests. They have a great sense of humor and, from my perspective, provide lots of helpful advice for those moments when I am trying to introduce folks to the hobby. Thanks Daron and Darin!
Just listened to your first few episodes and wanted to pat you guys on the back! The show is fun and witty and the DDs are very easy to listen to. I'm not a beginner to board games but I think this show has a lot to offer those that are and those who also just love the topic. Great work!
Great guests and witty banter!!
I can honestly say this is my favorite podcast! Board games aren’t for “losers”, they’re for smart people. Intelligent discourse, informative dialogue, and witty banter....this podcast has it all! Love the guests and ‘that’s ridiculous!’ segment! Joelle and Stephanie were hilarious!! And kudos to Lorelei and Annette for putting up with the Double D’s...obviously they are the best wives ever!! They’re also awesome on air! Great podcast for serious gamers and those interested in the hobby. Give it a try!! Start with Episode 1....Episode 0 is better after you get to know the Double D’s. Enjoy!!
