We look back at our interviews with famed designer Phil Walker-Harding and creator of Dice Tower West, Timm Metivier. We also re-review Istanbul The Dice Game, and revisit the Top 5 Games We Want to Play But Haven't Yet list from August of 2018.

    Forgotten Waters

    Forgotten Waters

    Chris flies solo today to talk about a game he was able to experience playing thanks to Plaid Hat Games' free social distance additions. Very great move of them, and so I'm here to tell you how it plays, and what to expect. I reckon if you go into this game with the right mindset, you'll have a great time.

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.
