The Spiel is a show about games and the people who love them. Each episode, we review and discuss a new board game or card game. Each game reviewed receives a Major Fun or Spiel of Approval award, our badge of quality. Older episodes (220 and earlier) feature a variety show format with game reviews and interviews. We here at The Spiel know fun. We are passionate about play as an essential and often forgotten part of life as we grow. Our goal is open a door to the wider world of games to as many people as we can. Have a listen. I hope you'll be inspired to find a friend and play!

Spiel On!

A podcast with a great history of quality content surrounding board games. One of the first to offer timely Spiel (Essen) content and they continue to do outstanding convention coverage. Nice transition to a new host recently. Keep
Up the good work.
