BGB Podcast #311 – Of Lovers and Travel

We’ve all been travelling about so much recently (some of us may or may not still be) that we often find ourselves asking, “what games should I pack?” Some games are better suited for playing on the go than others, and we’re going to get to the heart of what makes a good travel game. Before our arms get tired, we also talk about Regicide, Golem, In the Shadow of Atlas, and DroPolter.
