Four old friends with a love of gaming come together to produce a bi-weekly show about gaming of all kinds: board, card, miniatures, role-playing games and much more. In each episode you can expect board game walk-through and reviews, gaming industry news and commentary and roundtable discussions. The hosts, Jamie, Tony, Brian and Chris, each have very different tastes in gaming so you can expect a wide variety of opinions and viewpoints.
