BGB Podcast #222: Are You the Gatekeeper?
There are many ways that we can accidentally contribute to gatekeeping in the hobby – pushing those who want to embrace it away. Whether it’s to those outside, or even, bizarrely, to those already in, we break down the subtle (and unsubtle) ways we do it, whether or not we mean to. Before we find the keymaster, we talk about San Marco, Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, and Ghosts of Christmas. Please vote for us in the Golden Geek awards!
