BGB Podcast #24 – Gen Con 2018 Preview

Ah, Gen Con. It’s like Christmas in August, minus the garish decorations and bearded dudes in silly costumes. No, wait.

Gen Con 2018 is almost upon us, and we’re counting down the games we’re most excited to check out! There’s a whole host of stuff that’ll be announced, spoken about, and released in the next week, and it can be an awful lot to take in at once. But fear not! Let Board Game Barrage be your guide. Before we fly to Indianapolis, we also talk about Vikings, and Navegador.
