Hey hey hey!  We're joined by Crystal Pisano from Board Game Blitz, a female-led podcast that also runs 30 minutes. Crystal loves thematic games that create stories, so she's on to share her Top 5 alongside us for great games that do this well.  She's an absolute blast, and I don't know if we've laughed this hard recording an episode before. We hope you all enjoy!

Like Worker Placement?  Check it out.

If you didn't hear the news, Charterstone is kind of a big deal. Jamey Stegmaier. Legacy. Claims of replayability.  So, how does that all stack up?  Let's dive in to our Spoiler Free, but very in depth review!   It's a half hour you'll be grateful to have spent listening to this episode.  Let us know if you have any questions!

Sometimes you get asked to teach a game to people. Those people may not really have much interest in games at all.  Maybe they want to see what you have to offer, but aren't really interested in getting further into the hobby.  Sometimes you have to host a party for 8 people who want to play some games once and that's all they want.  So, how about we offer our Top 5 Games for People Who Don't Play Games  (shortened to Non Gamers for the episode title).  Share with us what are yours!

Ahh, the smell of freshly punched out cardboard!  I love it.  Do you?  How about baby carrots?
