Very fun friendly and informative podcast

Love the way Bill and Kaz discuss the board games that they are playing and their experiences with board games that they have played. It’s a great mix of quick impressions of new games and love for their favorite games. One of my favorite board game podcasts. Definitely give this a listen.

Educational and entertaining

Being fairly new to board games I have really enjoyed this podcast. I’ve learned so much and have a list of games I want to play now. They explain the games and mechanisms in such a fun way, which keeps me engaged without being overwhelmed. Great podcast!!!

Great Podcast!

Really enjoyable back and forth between Kaz & Bill. As someone who enjoys board games but doesn’t know a great deal about them, I’ve gotten a lot of useful info from these two, and some cool new games I picked up after hearing their reviews!

Not sure what the weird comment about politics was about - I’ve listened to every episode so far and can’t recall any discussions about politics coming up.
