Dice Tower Network Podcast: Board Game Point of View
Board Game Point of View Episodes
Legendary heroes, mutinies on the high seas and towns positively overrun with the walking dead are all things you can expect to hear on a special, two man Episode 49. To start the show, Steven and Adam embark on a quest of obscurity as they dive deep into the games contained within the bowels of Board Game Geek…. eventually unearthing a lesser known game from a notable designer. They then talk about a slew of news surrounding BGPOV’s favorite game studio*, Plaid Hat Games.
We run through the winners of the Dice Tower Awards! Did all games deserve their dice towery accolades? We will give you the definitive opinions on all these games and many more. Also… Steven talks about some of the cuter things in BGPOV history (including a bedtime randevu with another member of the cast), Seth proclaims his allegiance to the Celtic nation and Adam pines for the ocean breeze as he brings to the table one of the most casual themes to any board game the crew has ever seen.
It’s award season everyone, and the crew is talking Game of the Year, Origins and more. With so much board game and conversion news happening… Steven is wondering if hype will propel some games to the top of people’s lists, Seth continues to disagree with the hype surrounding a game of the year award winner and Adam continues to champion the imaginations of children. The boys then take a float down the Nile to discuss an award contender from the past set in ancient Egypt.
In this very special episode, the crew embarks on their second session of the Edge of the Empire RPG system set in the Star Wars universe. I want to thank our amazing game master, Alex Eding, for hosting this campaign. It has been a blast thus far, and we look forward to continuing the journey. The Edge of the Empire RPG ...

In this cooperative game special, the crew dares to venture into the nightmarish world of Arkham Horror and dives deep into the unknown to explore a kickstarter project that may just have you and your friends wondering where you put the dynamite. Steven’s creeping leads to an unexpectedly pleasant encounter at church, Seth puts his best foot (and apparel) forward at the local career fair and Adam drops an announcement about an upcoming adventure that takes place in a galaxy far, far away. Will our intrepid podcasters make it through another episode filled with horrifyingly bad puns?
A couple of Brunos invade the podcast with two very different games. One has the boys building quaint little kingdoms with all the pleasantries that serfdom can afford, and the other… well, we’ll just call it the game that shall not be named. Seth gives us the rundown of his recent conquest during 12 hours of interstellar combat, Steven has his worst fears realized at the hands of Steve Avery and Adam introduces his young brood to the joys of role playing.
It’s our first podcast of the new year, and the crew has gathered around the microphone (and the fireplace) to talk about 2017! With so many games set to release next year and the hype already building for a number of different projects, Adam has a lot of questions for the boys. What games are we most excited about? What theme would you like to see more of this year? What in the world is Fantasy Flight going to do with the Star Wars IP now? 2017 is already shaping up to be an exciting year!
The crew takes a look back at the year 2016. Though many games were played, only a select few were privileged enough to make it onto our annual lists of favorite things. So settle into your favorite chair, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join us as we discuss our favorite Overall Games, Artwork, Components, Mechanics, Card Games, Themes ...
