Dice Tower Network Podcast: Every Night is Game Night

Every Night is Game Night is a weekly, 30-45 minute podcast about strategy and thematic games, with a special emphasis on cooperative and solo play. Every week, Anthony and Jason talk about the games they love - Anthony covers heavy strategy and Euro games, while Jason brings his passion for games with lots of theme and narrative. We do regular game reviews and frequently discuss a variety of topics in the board gaming world, ranging from serious to silly. We also bring you Kickstarter previews, as well as long form interviews with many of the most noteworthy names in the industry, including Matt Leacock, Ryan Laukat, Ignacy Trzewiczek, Scott Almes, Isaac Childres, and more!

For episode 30 of Table for One, Anthony and Jason sit down with Matt Leacock to discuss...our favorite children's games! With Matt's newest game, Mole Rats in Space, hitting stores, we wanted to discuss how he approached a game so different from his blockbuster titles, and what that process looks like. 

In addition, we take a few minutes to each share our three favorite children's games and what they mean to us and our families.

Anthony is taking over this week with three big, heavy games! In an all-brain-burning, all-puzzle-euro special, Anthony takes a look at three big games he's been playing lately, including the behemoths of Vinhos Deluxe and The Gallerist from Vital Lacerda and Eagle Gryphon Games, and the smaller, yet wonderfully innovative Tramways from Alban Viard. 

Anthony will walk through what he likes and doesn't like about each of the three games and their solo variants, while Jason asks questions and wonders at theming, questionable components, and play time.
