Exceptional and Friendly Game Reviews

This show is fantastic with its coverage of board and miniatures games. Bill and his rotating group of guest hosts put on a show that feels as if he’s invited you into his living room and you’re listening to a discussion of what they’ve been playing. This show covers pretty much every type of strategic boardgames as they come out, and it’s not just reviews, it’s ongoing looks of games over time, philosophy of games, and much else. Listen to a couple casts and see what you think.

Great stuff

Gamers Lounge Ep. Damn

Every once in a while when podcasting for any length of time things happen and entire shows are lost. This is one of those times. What makes it worse is I’m the primary culprit and sole reason the next episode is not on time. Damn. Sorry folks, Ep. 157 is going to be delayed. I’ll have it out as soon as we can re-record and get it uploaded (possibly 2 weeks due to work schedules).
