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 43: Days of Wonder

This episode was edited the night after getting back from Origins, so these show notes are going to be short and to the point! Today we’re talking about two games that were both originally published by Days of Wonder: Cleopatra and the Society of Architects and Colosseum. Because both of these games were then later reprinted, we have a conversation about reprints and games that we would like to see be reprinted. Most importantly, as of this episode Mat is officially back in Pittsburgh so we will once again be recording our episodes altogether in the same location!
