BGB Podcast #73 – Dictionary Attack

High definitions.

You don’t need no education, but you’re getting one anyway. This week we’re going to be explaining the meaning of some common but unclear board game words, for we are nothing if not your humble servants. Before we define our terms, we talk about The Shipwreck Arcana, Kingdom Death: Monster, and Vinhos Deluxe Edition.
