BGB Podcast #106 – Popcorn Time with Mike DiLisio

Pop pop!

Mike DiLisio (of The Dice Tower, and Sporadically Board) makes his BGB podcast debut as the Fandango Tank! Mike’s trying to sell us on popcorn games, the board game world’s equivalent to popcorn movies. These are games that may or may not be … critically sound, but nevertheless provide fun experiences that we find ourselves returning to. But why wouldn’t we just play something more substantive instead? We investigate.
