Men on Board

Men on Board is a board gaming podcast where each episode will focus on a particular category within the hobby. The categories will be anything from a mechanic, to a theme, to a particular designer or publisher. Each episode will usually focus on two games from the category and contain a discussion of each as well as some compare and contrasting between them. Also, every episode will include a discussion that pulls back and looks at a more broad view about the board gaming hobby.

Board Game Kiki Episode 2: Pax Unplugged 2018

We’re switching up the schedule this week and pushing back Episode 33 to December 31st and instead we’re releasing this Board Game Kiki episode about Pax Unplugged 2018. Just as a heads up, we had some technical difficulty while recording, so when things sound choppy or when we’re talking a mile a minute, that’s why. With Christmas approaching, we also give our version of a gift guide in the form of what gifts we would give to each other. Finally, we are once again putting out the call for feedback as we have some discussions behind the scenes about potentially switching up our format.
