BGB Podcast #59 – Ain’t Nothing Like It
I am inimitable, I am an original.
Some games offer an experience so unique, so unlike anything else, that you can’t help but take notice. It might be a bold thematic setting, or a set of mechanics that you’ve never seen before. This week, we’re counting down our favourite games that do something … a little bit different. Before we stand out from the crowd, we also talk about Looting London, and Chimera.
