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.
