BGB Podcast #186 – Don’t Knock It Till You Try It

We all have types of games that, for whatever reason, we steer clear of. Often all that we’ve been missing is a more suitable introduction to the genre, or a game that’s just enough of an outlier. This week, we try to tempt you toward genres that you might have written off, with the games that may just sway you. Before we change your minds, we talk about Pocket Galapagos, Cascadia, and Bites.
