Love love love

I love this show every week. My favorite weeks are the Mandi and Suzanne weeks. I love hearing a different perspective in the board game community.

Miss Tom...

They keep putting Suzanne in there and I can't take it. I have no problem with people who have a different view than me but when you act like the most vile person on social media but come on the DT and talk about pie and act differently : I got a problem. I'll take Tom, Eric and Mandi all day...but the Ms Sheldon is just too horrible a human being for me to pretend she's so sweet and nice.

Still fine, but not keeping up with the hobbys growing base

For years this was my favorite podcast. It’s still fine, but both the podcast and various dice tower YouTube shows have lot more non-gaming chitchat about movies or pie, etc.

This is fine, but the show also bends over backwards to keep from even acknowledging any uncomfortable conversations about issues in the gaming community. It’s annoying to listen to 12 minutes on TV shows while the premier board game review company in the US completely ignores current game news.

While other podcasts and review shows have started talking about problematic designers, race, colonialism and representation in gaming, the dice tower prefers to talk about what marvel show is out. I like Marvel but I also like to know what the experts have to say about problematic game themes. Even when it’s uncomfortable.
