BGB Podcast #10 – Everyone is Wrong and We are Right

Double digits, yo. First, a bit of housekeeping; you might have noticed that it is not Wednesday. We’re trying a new schedule that will get the episodes out at a consistent time going forward, rather than, “It’s still Wednesday somewhere, right?” So what that means for you is that wherever you are, Thursday morning...

BGB Podcast #9 – PhD in Legacy

It’s not just the podcast that’s cause for celebration, we’re also celebrating legacy this week … in more ways than one. Legacy. What is a legacy? It’s podcasting in a studio you don’t get to see. And now that I’ve drawn in all the Hamilton fans, let’s talk about board games! Specifically, board games...

BGB Podcast #8 – Just Deserts

What’s that you hear? Could it be the crisp sound of fresh new audio equipment? It is. It’s exactly that. Trapped on a desert island and forced to bring only five board games? We’ve all been there. And we’re going back. To the island. The board game island. It’s a question as old as...

BGB Podcast #7 – Kicking and Screaming

Podcasts! Getcha podcasts! Get those takes while they’re hot. Today we’re talking Kickstarters. Can’t live with ’em, can’t rampantly overspend on incomplete unorthodox game designs without ’em. They’re clearly a major force in the board game hobby, but are they a force for good, or for evil? Or are rhetorical dichotomies only useful as...

BGB Podcast #6 – Today’s Theme: Pronunciation

Wednesday, more like Bestday, because it’s BGB podcast time. Our feature topic this week is theme. How important is the theme of a board game to you? Does it affect your enjoyment of a game? What games best utilize their theme to put a neat little bow on their mechanics? We talk about all...

BGB Podcast #5 – It’s Good To Be Kingmaker

Thursday! That’s the day the podcast goes up. No, wait, sorry it’s not, but due to a technical malfunction this one needed a little bit more time in the oven. I think you’ll find that it’s totally worth it. In this episode, after we talk about our week in board gaming, we look at...

BGB Podcast #4 – Buy Buy Buy

It’s that time of the week! You know what I mean. On today’s pod (the first and last time I call it that), we talk about what we’ve been playing, then we take a long hard look at our collections and our shelves of shame, and figure out what we really need in a...

BGB Podcast #3 – Double Dragonfly

Everyone knows Wednesday is the best day of the week, but do you know why? That’s when new episodes of the Board Game Barrage podcast release! In today’s lovingly crafted audio thing, we recap our week of games, then we dive headfirst into our feature topic: Everyone’s talking about it, and so must we;...

BGB Podcast #2 – Catching Trains and Mathing Trades

It’s Wednesday! That means another episode of the Board Game Barrage Podcast! In today’s episode we each talk about what we’ve been playing, then we do a deep dive into the crazy world of math trades. Don’t let the name put you off, they’re an exciting way to trade or sell your board games,...

BGB Podcast #1 – I’m Not Upset, I’m Just Disappointed

We’re proud to present episode 1 of our podcast, something we’ve been referring to internally using the codename, “the first episode”. We’ll be posting a new episode every Wednesday! In today’s episode we each talk about a game we liked from 2017, a game that let us down, and what we’re looking forward to...
