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 that have campaigns or legacy components. Is it a gimmicky trend, or does it add something meaningful to an experience? We also talk about Alchemists, Inis, and Through The Desert … and on top of all that, we have a special announcement!
