BGB Podcast #153 – Never Look Back at 2020
So long, 2020, thanks for nothing.
Heads set firmly forward, we reflect on what’s been a completely wild year. Despite our complete inability to play a lot of them, board games did happen, so we take a bit of time to talk about the biggest surprises and disappointments. Finally, we cast our mind ahead to the games we’re looking forward to playing in 2021. Before we try to forget, we talk about Paris, The Fox in the Forest, and Cthulhu Wars: Duel.
Check out Kellen’s review of Cthulhu Wars: Duel over here!
