BGB Podcast #17 – The Best Things in Life Are $20 or Less

$20 can’t buy you love, but it can buy you Love Letter. And we sure do love the letter that BGB listener Layne sent us to inspire this week’s topic!

What games can you get for $20? Quite a few really good ones, it turns out. While the allure of big box games with tons of components is hard to shake, you don’t have to break the bank to build a really solid collection. Before we hand over our Andrew Jacksons (that’s a thing Americans say, right?), we discuss Scythe, Watson & Holmes, and Mansions of Madness: Second Edition.
