BGB Podcast #284 – Gen Con 2023 Preview

It’s convention season, and the big one is almost upon us, as board gamers across America prepare to descend on Indiana. Gen Con! We won’t be there this year, but that won’t stop us anticipating what we could be playing at the show. Before we want what we can’t have, we talk about Fancy Feathers, Beast, Mr. President: The American Presidency, 2001-2020, and Mercator.
