Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Innkeeper's Table

The Innkeeper's Table is series of bite-sized episodes intended to bridge the gap between experienced gamers and newcomers to the hobby. We focus on a single topic each episode, for 20 minutes or less, in order to make board games more approachable to new gamers and spark discussions that gamers of all experience levels can join in on.

100 episodes! That's quite a milestone, and we couldn't have made it here without our listeners! To celebrate, the hosts have a special long episode prepared, where we discuss, not just our Top 3, but our Top 10 games, period!

We couldn't fit this whole discussion into our normal 15–20 minutes, so we've extended this special episode to over an hour to cover everything! We hope you'll enjoy it.

While we were at Dice Tower West 2022, Dylan had the opportunity to play Roy Cannaday's upcoming lightspeed 4X game, Last Light. In this episode, he pitches the game to Bill as one to play.


Deceptively simple to learn, with some impressive ramp-up in intensity later on, Focus, the 1981 winner of the Spiel des Jahres, has a lot going for it. In this episode, Bill and Dylan discuss what they thought of this simply complex game of strategy.
