BGB Podcast #72 – The Long and the Short of It

Good things take time.

Time is a precious resource, so let’s not waste any; we’re talking about game length. How long should a game be? Is it worse if a game is too long or too short? We wrestle with the fourth dimension in our search for answers. Before we watch the clock, we talk about Dice Forge, Gulo Gulo, and Millennium Blades.
