Engaging hosts, great content!

I know enough to be dangerous about tabletop gaming and these guys kept me interested every step of the way - a grade A mix of banter and solid information. They've got a sub for life from me!

One of the Best Tabletop/40k/Boardgame Podcasts

Fantastic podcast. The Basement of Death team are veteran gamers with great insight into the whole spectrum of the hobby. They have been friends for years and it shows. They have great camaraderie and humor and I feel like I'm there enjoying the fun with them. One of my favorite aspects of the show is how fresh it feels. Although it seems that the hosts have previous podcast experience they are clearly enjoying themselves and trying out new things. The show is well done and it's clear that they've put in some excellend preparation time with them. I'm pretty picky about podcasts and this is one of two 40k podcasts that I listen to regularly. Even though there's a lot of the show that's not Warhammer 40,000 related, I still enjoy the entire show.
