BGB Podcast #199 – Amerigames and Eurotrash

The split between Eurogame and Ameritrash gamers is as old as it it is silly, but in the last ten years it’s also become a lot more nebulous. It’s less clear than ever which side of the fence games fall on, so why still use these archaic labels at all? Maybe it’s time for a change. Before we heal the divide, we talk about Hostage Negotiator, Juicy Fruits, Sleeping Gods, and Witchstone.

If you’re going to be at PAX Unplugged, you can take part in the official math trade!
