Dice Tower Network Podcast: Board With Video Games

Board With Video Games covers all the games you play on your table and your television. Each week Josh and Kyle cover the games they have been playing, discuss interesting news in both industries, respond to listener questions, and go in-depth on one topic covering it from a video game and a board game perspective. Mix in the occasional guest and you have a podcast covering two of the major pillars of the gaming landscape. You can think of Board With Video Games as the peanut butter and jelly sandwich of gaming podcasts, and we would love you to join us!

Only one Kickstarter this week, the expansion to Near and Far.  We have a lot of feedback from last week and then we go on topic and talk about filler games.  Chris seems passionate and conflicted about the term, but we'll blame that on the fact he's getting married this week and his mind has been all over the place!

In this episode we get some feedback around fiddly bits, Chris reminds people about the 7th Continent Kickstarter, and backs a couple others and then we go on topic... Ancient games!  It's like a history class, but for games.  Some games have stood the test of time, where did they come from and how did they become what they are today?  That's what we try and get to the bottom of in this episode.
