Dice Tower Network Podcast: Board Gamers Anonymous

Board Gamers Anonymous is an audio podcast about the tabletop hobby, covering card games, board games, and miniature games and the insane fun we have at the table together. Every two weeks BGA's hosts cover which games are triggering their acquisition disorders, what's been hitting the table, and whether the biggest new release is a buy, a play, or a dodge. The BGA crew strives to talk not only about what makes a game good, but the experiences that these games can give us and why they keep us coming back. As always, we have a seat saved just for you, so join us!
