Not to put too fine a point on it, but this episode is cursed. It was cursed during production – with sound quality going haywire and one of our contributors dragged away to places of unspeakable depravity – and even our originally scheduled review had to be postponed. Although luckily we managed to nail down 7 Wonders: Duel in its stead… so not all is lost.
The eloquent and impeccably reliable Dr. Nick Mariner introduces us to his favourite small packages. And your hosts Ben & Georgios wonder whether boardgames are too comfortable with being niche. Although we might have phrased it a little less diplomatically in the show.
Also, why not drop by our guild and let us know how you like our new empty concert hall sound? Or rather, do you think that boardgaming is too exclusionary?
