BGB Podcast #64 – Are Games Even Fun?

We probably should have asked this a while ago.

We’re being serious. Are board games a base line level of fun that we ought to take for granted? We’re all together, we’re all playing a game, that’s better than doing nothing, right? It couldn’t possibly be that simple with us. Before we arithmetise entertainment, we also talk about Tiny Towns, Zendo, and Escape Plan.
