Sleeper hit!

While it doesn’t seem to get a lot of press, I find this show to be a true sleeper hit!

The discussions stay fluidly on track, and the information they provide is deep and insightful. Most importantly though, they make me want to play games!

Fun, informative and hilarious

This show is an underrated gem. Jean and Matt both know a decent amount about strategy war games and the slower, longer pace of the show is refreshing compared to other more compact podcasts on the same subject. The two hosts play off each other hilariously and all in all this has become one of my favorite podcasts.
