11/5/2019
More
This week it’s Stonemaier’s turn as we take a look at some of the bigger names in board games. This is the smallest of the big names, but just because they don’t have as many games as the others, doesn’t mean they don’t have as big an influence on the industry. Chris’s top 3 Stonemaier … Continue reading TGT 167 On Topic: Stonemaier Games →

10/14/2019
More

TGT 163 On Topic: Playing Games for Money

10/8/2019
More
This week we talk about cash money, for winning. And what that can do to a game. We use KeyForge as an example since FFG recently announced a $100,000 cash event, but really this applies to all types of competitive games.

9/17/2019

9/3/2019
More
This week Kitty and Chris talk about notable designers and publishers.

8/27/2019
