BGB Podcast #170 – Friedemann Friese Frenzy

We love Friedemann Friese, so much so that we’re devoting a whole episode to the green-haired designer – a comprehensive look back at his contribution to the hobby, and how we’ve gotten on with his games over the years. If you’ve never played one of his games, let us help correct that. Before we give the fantastic fellow our full focus, we talk about Kubb, Pictures, and The Field of the Cloth of Gold.

Vote in the Golden Geek Awards!
