All of this has happened before, and all of this will happen again.

BGB Podcast #38 – Six Things I Hate About You

Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Board game dealbreakers, we all have them, and they’re enough to dissuade us from buying or even playing some otherwise great games. This week, we go around the table and talk about two things each that put us off in board games. Before we start looking...
