BGB Podcast #41 – The First Cut Is the Deepest

If Euros be the food of love, play on.

There’s no love like your first love, and this week we’re talking about our early board game crushes. These are the games that first got us into the hobby, that made us want to shout our love for board games to all who’d care to hear. Before we walk down memory lane, we also talk about Key to the City: London, Empires, and Guards of Atlantis.
