So I developed a manic obsession with board games about a year ago and quickly realized that I would go into crippling debt if I didn't find a better way to quality control my purchases. On Board Games was the first gaming podcast I stumbled upon, and being part of the Dice Tower Network, lead me to others. Most of the episodes seem to run long (1:30 - 2:00), but anyone interested in the hobby will enjoy the topics covered, and their reviews are where they really shine. Highly recommend if you have a lot of empty time to fill, but if you need a shorter experience either skip ahead the reviews or possibly consider other members of the Dice Tower Network. Personally though, OBG is still my favorite.
