BGB Podcast #168 – Board Games Suck with Dan Hughes from Sporadically Board

And now for something completely different.

Dan Hughes from Sporadically Board joins us to flip the podcast on its head. Now that we’ve spent a hundred and sixty seven episodes raving about board games, it’s only fair that we discuss all the reasons they suck. Before we turn heel, we talk about Blackout: Hong Kong, Royal Visit, Marvel Champions: The Card Game, and Deckscape: Test Time.

Please check out Dan’s board game CoraQuest, and his podcast Sporadically Board – Mark and Neilan guested on an episode, and Kellen guested on another.
