Better than baby carrots!

If you’re like me, you were born in Las Vegas, Nevada! And like me, you only want board game content from Las Vegas gamers. Then like me, you have to listen to best podcast on the Dice Tower Network featuring only hosts from Las Vegas.

Just this episode

Ok if you’re going to tackle an entire designer then you really need to make sure you know the material and not just some of it. Someone kept saying he only played a few of Uwe games but it seamed like that was the theme for everyone there. Barely covered the trilogy spring meadow because most never played it and ps. they are way better that Patchwork. And it took over an hour to even mention fields of Arle and still sounds like most never played that too. And serious Ora art Labora no one played it either!
But good job going into his older games before Agricola. Abs really great cover on Agricola abs the depth of struggle for it.

Sorry for the harsh review but I was looking forward to this episode but felt let down.

Great chemistry!

I love this podcast. Upbeat with lots of positive energy. Wendy and Chris have a lot of talent as entertainers, but also bring interesting perspective and knowledge to the crowded board gaming podcast space. Love it!
