BGB Podcast #131 – But At What Cost?

Here it comes, from the famous Bob Barker studio in Hollywood!

Even if the price is right, it might not be right for you. We all have different thresholds where a board game we’re interested in crosses from, “maybe I’ll wait for a sale” into “sure why not” territory, but where is that magical line? Has what we’re willing to pay for games changed over time? Before we get sticker shock, we talk about Twin Tin Bots, Ticket to Ride: New York, Whale Riders, and Dead Reckoning.
