A PODCAST ABOUT BOARD GAMES, CARD GAMES AND TABLETOP GAMING. HOSTED BY SEAN AND RONAN AND COMING OUT OF THE UK.

Episodes

In our Treasure Hunt episodes we have a look at unreleased games and make our predictions as to whether we think they will play like a dream and be deemed a Treasure or cause the worst nightmares and be branded a Trap.

With Spiel 2018 on the horizon we start of our predictions for the big show right here. Twelve games are poked and prodded until a verdict is reached and you might find something useful for your own Essen lists.
