Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Long View

The Long View is a podcast designed to take a closer, more critical look at the games we play. Each episode will focus on a single game. The game will be one that the podcasters will have played many, many times. The purpose is to provide a forum for those who want to know what a game reveals after multiple plays. Discussion will focus on the game play itself. It will not be a description of the rules of the game. Rather, it will be an in depth exploration of the merits or flaws of the game that become apparent when it it played multiple times. Thanks for listening!
