BGB Podcast #133 – Light It Up
I’m gonna let it shine.
Things got a bit heavy last week, so let’s take things down a notch by exploring the other end of the scale. Light games are just as important for a board game collection, after all. We discuss what light games offer that heavier games don’t, and mention some of our recent favourites. Before we lighten the mood, we talk about Reef, Clans of Caledonia, and Tutankhamun.
