Episode 13 - Elitism in the Board Gaming Hobby

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Hello, and welcome to the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join us as we discuss elitism in the board game hobby. We try to differentiate between having preferences and using those preferences as a badge of superiority. It is a complex topic for certain and we give it our best go.

We also introduce a new segment in this episode – The Gaming Lexicon. In this segment, we take a dive into a gaming term by defining and discussing it. Fiddly is our term this time. That’s right. Fiddly.

We are putting out the call for listener questions! If you have a question you’d like us to answer on the podcast please email it to pubmeeple@gmail.com.
