Episode 178: Special Guests - Ben Pinchback & Adam Hill from Motor City Gameworks

The Board Game BBQ Podcast

On this special episode Adrian, Mitch and Sarah are joined by Ben and Adam from Motor City Games. Adrian is so excited to have the boys on the show that his internet spontaneously combusts! It's left to Mitch and Sarah to pick up the pieces and carry on with the show. Don't worry, if you can get through all of the air-fryer, cookie, and BBQ talk, they do actually talk about some board games as well, including their upcoming release: Motor City. In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Pandemic Legacy Season One vs Cartographers, before we tee up the next battle: Wingspan vs Lords of Waterdeep. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials. Finally, in Swear An Oath Sarah was unable to fulfil her oath due to Adrian's laziness, but Mitch was very pleased to find that playing Great Western Trail solo was challenging and still great fun. And the lads from Motor City Games get in on the oath action. New oaths include to play Arkwright: The Card Game solo (Sarah), Reworld (Adam), Legends of Sleepy Hollow (Ben), and Cerebria (Mitch).
