BGB Podcast #282 – A Soupçon of Sackson

After much consternation at his exclusion from our Mount Rushmore of games, we’ve decided to honour legendary designer Sid Sackson elsewhere – a BGB Designer Spotlight! I think these used to be called BGB DOGs but even Mark forgot about that bit of branding. Oh well. Before we make amends, we talk about Magicalligraphy, Hamlet: The Village Building Game, and Tournament at Camelot. Be sure to check out the Sid Sackson Portal!
