BGB Podcast #110 – One Small Thing

One bad apple can spoil the broth. The apple broth.

Sometimes a game is hitting all the right notes, and you want to recommend it wholeheartedly … but there’s just one tiny blemish you can’t overlook. It’s not enough to make a great game bad, but, man, just imagine if it someone had fixed that. This week we’re looking at games that almost nail it. Before we smooth the last crease, we talk about Chaosmos, Subtext, On a Scale of One to T-Rex, and Empyreal: Spells & Steam.
