Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Game Pit

The Game Pit is a board game podcast based out of London, UK. Hosted by Sean and Ronan, every two weeks they discuss tabletop games which have fallen into the pit whether it be ‘Picking over the Bones’ of new and older releases, going on a ‘Treasure Hunt’ by previewing upcoming releases, sorting out the best from the rest in ‘The Vault’ or contrasting similar games in ‘Pit Fight’. Sean enjoys thematic games and gaming bling while Ronan likes to delve into the mechanisms of a game and enjoys the social interaction in tabletop gaming. These contrasting viewpoints lead to some lively discussions.

We are back with a revised format for this The Vault episode. We will as ever be putting one of the greatest games ever designed into the hallowed Vault but instead of Sean and Ronan nominating games we have Natalie with us. Natalia has chosen her Top 5 games of all time and it is our job to decide which of the nominees deserves to become only the 4th game allowed to enter. Listen to find out which game makes the cut.

Sean and Ronan give their first impressions of eighteen games they sampled over a long weekend in Birmingham at UK Games Expo 2017 as well as touching on other experiences they sampled.

This episode is less about full reviews and more to give an idea of the sort of games you can expect to see on a table near you soon. There is a definite emphasis on lighter and family games, the heavy stuff is coming soon.
