BGB Podcast #84 – Best With Two

Three’s a crowd.

Kellen graces us with his absence, which means it’s time for Mark and Neilan to start talking numbers. Specifically, player numbers. We’re talking about optimal player counts for games, whether games ever mean what they recommend on the box, and how well they scale. Before we count to ten, we talk about Vindication, Royal Palace, Throw Throw Burrito, and Pipeline.
