BGB Podcast #68 – A Mailbag of Biblical Proportions

Kellen wouldn’t let me call it “Orange Letter Day”.

Letters! You love writing them, and we love reading them! This week, we look at portable and licensed games, why reviewers love social games, and give advice for your first board game convention. Before we break out the letter opener, we also talk about Fool!, Aerion, and Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar.
