    291 – Beyond Board Games – Strong Songs – The Family Gamers Podcast

    Our special guest this week is Kirk Hamilton, host of the podcast Strong Songs. What makes a song great? Is it the "thump, pop, and sizzle" of the drum groove, power chords, lush 7ths and 9ths? Kirk uses music theory, history, and isolates patterns to break down songs you've heard before and help you understand WHY they're great.

The finest family-centered board game content

The Family Gamers have their finger on the pulse of comprehensive family gaming. For gamers with families of all ages, the content is useful, practical, and applicable, and the production is top notch.

Outstanding!

I would need at least five hands to count the amount of times that my family has enjoyed a game recommended by The Family Gamers. Their podcast is well edited/produced and enjoyable to listen to. They often have interesting guests as well. If you are in a gaming slump, need a new game, or simply just want to listen to an enjoyable podcast....check out TFG. They also have a great website full of great game reviews and overviews. If they say something is good. It is worth your consideration.
