The post 189 – Boardgames & Books – The Family Gamers Podcast appeared first on The Family Gamers.
Apparently, there are 162 games in a season of Major League Baseball. So, we’ve reached that milestone now – yay? We’re going to talk about collecting (kids are natural collectors – or maybe hoarders) and “improving” your collection in various ways. What We’ve Been Playing Brainwaves: The Astute Goose – a memory game that actually improves your memory! Spy Club
We’re here with interviews from this year’s Boston FIG Fest! We’ll tell you about a few of our favorites, have a SNAP review, then get right into the interviews.

We first met at PAX Unplugged, and we’re always happy to talk with other family-focused gamers. Gaming with Sidekicks branched off from a different website; the founders met while playing Dice Masters competitively. At one point, they had four different podcasts!
