Where video game industry veterans introduce great board games to video gamers

Going Analog Podcast #23: Epic Space Games

So many Kickstarters, new editions of older titles, epic space games.

We had some slight guest-scheduling difficulties for this episode, but never fear! We still have a show full of games talk since Christina, Shoe, and Mike can't shut up about them anyway.

Our three topics this time:

  1. Shoe: Pre-Gen Con Kickstarter deliveries up the wazoo...how will we ever play all these games in time?
  2. Mike: Buying second (or third...) editions of older games, or newer isn't always better.
  3. Christina: Epic space games (We finally played Twilight Imperium)! ​
