Awesome for family game suggestions

I enjoy listening to Andrew and Anitra talk about what games they enjoy playing with their family. Many of their suggestions I have purchased and played with my family and club at school. Green Team wins and Just One have been 2 of the hits. I also like the look back each month to see what they have played and how many games they played. Thank you for the content and I can’t wait to enjoy the next 350 episodes.

Great podcast, lots of time put in to entertain and inform us!!! (soundwavepodcasts)

This is a great podcast for anyone who is getting into board games or is already an avid gamer. They recommend GREAT games and put a lot of care and love into their hobby and all the family gamers stuff (written reviews, SNAP reviews which are little videos reviewing a small game-in a snap, and the podcast.) As a podcaster myself I know how hard it is to keep up a 10 minute fiction podcast, let alone an hour long gaming podcast that comes out every Monday (well, it used to, now it’s bi weekly, and I’m sure we can all understand that.) overall great podcast! 5 stars, listen!

Love this podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for several years now and it’s always entertaining and informative. My kids are unfortunately not into board games too much but I still enjoy hearing about new games from the family perspective and once in a while, I hear of games that the kids will play.
