Best Board Game Podcast

Matthew Robinson, Tom Donnelly and their gaming group produce an AMAZINGLY fun and enjoyable podcast! I’ve listened to EVERY single episode! Each one more entertaining than the last! The podcast is so incredibly thought out with different segments including Game News, Games on the Brain, Game Night, Game Review, and Board Game Sommelier! Each of the podcast members represent such diverse kinds of gamers! The group is so responsive on their Facebook group and Sommelier! I look forward to their podcast every week!

Too elitist for me

Couldn’t seem to interact in their Facebook group without some other member (or host/admin) jumping me. I appreciate the work they put into the podcast but it and the Facebook group don’t feel, “welcoming” to me. It all seemed very much, “this is what we think and you should feel honored to hear it.”

I lived in SoCal for a number of years and I had enough of that, then.
