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 42: Pick Up and Deliver

We apologize for the delay in getting today’s episode out, but we think that it was worth the day’s wait! Today we’re talking about two pick up and deliver games: Firefly and Merchant of Venus. Then in our Broader View, we have a conversation that we’re calling The Logistics of Longer Games: Running Long, where we pretty much just talk about social etiquette when playing long games. If you’re going to be at Origins next week and you see us around, please say hi!
