BGB Podcast #56 – Shelf of Shape Up or Ship Out

Move over, Marie Kondō.

It’s always sad to see a game go. But sometimes it’s just time to move on, to let it be free, to let someone else enjoy its esoteric rules and quirky components. Games leave our collections for many reasons, so let’s take a look at some of them. Before we spark joy, we talk about Big Dig, Trains, and The River.
