BGB Podcast #290 – Stuck in the Mid With You


Are board games stuck? Not to be dramatic or anything, but it does seem like we keep circling the same ideas over and over again, right? We speculate on where we think the hobby is headed, and whether or not it needs a shake up. Before we plateau, we talk about Orchard, Hadrian’s Wall, Terracotta Army, and Santiago.

This way to the PAX Unplugged Math Trade!
