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.

Back once again like a Renegade (not the publisher) Master, Ronan brings seven reviews to your ears as he catches up on his 2021 plays. 


Rolling and racing with Cubitos, fiddling with future gladiators in Fired Up!, putting nutritionalists in peril in Dead of Winter: The Long Night, sky diving in Bunny Kingdom, space invading with Under Falling Skies, sneaking and beaking in Tyrants of the Underdark and getting a headache while thinking too hard in Solarius Mission. 



This time around Ronan is flying solo and reviews six games he has played in recent months; The Red Cathedral, Dune Imperium, Curious Cargo, Nidavellir, Aqualin and Champions of Midgard expansions. He also talks about recent additions to his collections and projects he has backed in Crowdfunding.
