Stay on Top of a TOWER of News!

This podcast is a great way to stay current with board game news in a half-hour format. It’s delivered with cheesy humor and warmth, which makes it a feel-good listen for me. Major news, crowd funding projects, new releases…this has it all

I can’t think of any other way I’d rather get my hobby news.

Could live without the skits

I have to say as far as just having a podcast that focuses on news in the board game industry, this one shines. They cover all the big pieces for the week and describe why the top ten on BGG might be peaking in popularity. However, the extremely kid friendly tone of the podcast is very off putting. The little skits the hosts do bring to mind cartoon kids shows. It’s not entertaining. Moreover, there’s not much of a reason for this tone. Kids don’t really listen to podcasts as far as I know. Board gamers are typically adults. It just seems odd Dice Tower would adopt this tone just in case some of these adults listen to podcasts with their kids. And I’d almost rather listen to SVWAG for news even though they don’t discuss as much of it.

Not really news

Didn’t cover pandasaurus or WOTC ogl news stories, basically puff pieces on new games, which isn’t bad, it’s just not news.
