Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Game Pit

The Game Pit is a board game podcast based out of London, UK. Hosted by Sean and Ronan, every two weeks they discuss tabletop games which have fallen into the pit whether it be ‘Picking over the Bones’ of new and older releases, going on a ‘Treasure Hunt’ by previewing upcoming releases, sorting out the best from the rest in ‘The Vault’ or contrasting similar games in ‘Pit Fight’. Sean enjoys thematic games and gaming bling while Ronan likes to delve into the mechanisms of a game and enjoys the social interaction in tabletop gaming. These contrasting viewpoints lead to some lively discussions.

We are back again and running the ruler over twelve more upcoming releases at Spiel 2018. We have dug into rulebooks, examined videos and searched our souls to give you our best predictions for which games will be Treasures and which will be Traps at the show this year.

In our Treasure Hunt episodes we have a look at unreleased games and make our predictions as to whether we think they will play like a dream and be deemed a Treasure or cause the worst nightmares and be branded a Trap.

With Spiel 2018 on the horizon we start of our predictions for the big show right here. Twelve games are poked and prodded until a verdict is reached and you might find something useful for your own Essen lists.
