The funny and not-so-funny sides of board gaming.
Some of you are gonna laugh. Some of you are gonna cry. And some of you are just going to claim, "BS." But it's true: We have friends who don't like board games.
We all know a cardboard-challenged pal or three. But that doesn't stop subborn us from trying to get them to sit down and play Ticket to Ride. It's an art -- picking the right game for people who'd rather just (shudder!) hang out and chit-chat without a board in between us. And some people just don't appreciate art.
Joining us to discuss this subject (and others) is guest Christian Kang, a veteran content/video producer in the board game industry. He's one talented dude (check out his videos on the Unsettled and Iron Clays & Spades Kickstarter campaigns, and drop him an email at email@example.com if you'd like to talk to him about contract work). He wants to know if there is, indeed, a game for everyone. We don't think so, but listen in to hear why.
