There are many podcasts that talk about board games, and they provide quick reviews so that consumers have an idea of what is good or not. However, few give such a good look at a single game in such an organized manner as Heavy Cardboard. Apart from the many times poker is mentioned there is so much to enjoy, learn about, and discover when listening to this podcast.
