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.

Episode 17: Cooperative Dice

Unfortunately, we had some issues with the recording in this episode, so Mat's sound quality is a little bit distracting.  As a result, we had to do some creative editing, so hopefully this doesn't sound too jarring.  But in this lo-fi episode, we're discussing Ghost Stories and Zombicide: Black Plague, two cooperative games where dice combat is a major part of the game.  In our Broader View, we have a discussion about dealing with alpha players.
