BGB Podcast #302 – A Lotta Prattle About Vlaada Chvátil


We’re back with the terrible acronym and the branding nightmare that is BGBDOG – I don’t even know what it stands for to be honest, but this week we’re turning the spotlight on an incredible force in the industry, Vlaada Chvátil, touring his incredible games all the way through to the true modern classic that is Codenames. Before we check in on our favourite Czech, we talk about Wyrmspan, 3 Ring Circus, and La Famiglia: The Great Mafia War.
