BGB Podcast #279 – Let the Golden Age Begin
Are we living in a golden age of board games? It’s a simple question, but there’s a lot to unpack – what even qualifies as a golden age, have we already had one, and if we are living in one, when does it end? Before we go for gold, we talk about That’s Not a Hat, Pulsar 2849, and Barrage.
