Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Dice Tower

The flagship podcast of the network, the Dice Tower is an audio show hosted by Eric Summerer, Suzanne Sheldon, Mandi Hutchinson, and Tom Vasel. We are happy to be sponsored by the OP!!  Featuring segments like GameTek with Geoff Engelstein, One and Done, Tales of Boardgaming Horror, Shelf Staple, and a bi-weekly Top Ten List, it covers a wide range of board and card games, with up to the minute news and game reviews. The Dice Tower is also home of the Dice Tower video show - in which Tom Vasel and many others consistently review all manner of board and card games.
