BGB Podcast #273 – Bob Chat

Good storytelling isn’t easy, and board games seem to struggle with it especially – which makes the ones that do pull it off, all the more memorable. We delve into the ways that games can engage us and create lasting experiences through stories. Before we spin a yarn, we talk about Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Artisans of Splendent Vale.
