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 36: Mystery

As of this episode, Men on Board is officially a part of the Dice Tower Network! We talk a little bit about that and some new things that we’re going to be doing with the podcast. Our category this week is mystery games, and we explore that through Tragedy Looper and Mysterium. Then in our Broader View, we talk about what we like about mysteries more generally, and we spend a lot of time talking about how much we enjoy murder mystery parties.
