Episode 26 - Our Gaming Roots

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Welcome to Episode 26 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Get to know your hosts a bit better as they discuss their personal gaming histories. They try to trace back into their early years to discover where their love of board gaming came from. This episode is a little bit memory lane, a little bit counseling session, and a lot of fun.

We also talk through all the other top 5s – our collective and individual top 5s as well as the BGRE top 5. Lots of great games are discussed.

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.
