BGB Podcast #142 – Play Me a Memory

Don’t you forget about me.

Blessed are the forgetful, because they don’t have to play memory games? After all, games with a strong memory component often get a bad rap in the hobby. We look at some of the reasons why very few games want to test your memory, and just to be otherwise, we discuss some of our favourite games that do. Before we walk our mind palaces, we talk about Fort, Under Falling Skies, and Tellstones: King’s Gambit.
