Best podcast EVER!

Fantastic Podcast

The Board Boys Podcast is my favorite board game podcast. They do a great job explaining the theme and mechanics of a game in a concise way. When I am done listening to the main segment I have a good idea if it is a game I want to try or not. The banter is great! They bring some silliness and laughs to the show. I also like how they play and talk about a variety of games. From the hotness to older games, to heavy euros and party games. Give them a listen for a few episodes.

Interesting and Entertaining!

Very funny and doesn’t ramble like a lot of pods these days.
