Episode 28 - Long-distance Gaming

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Welcome to Episode 28 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join Just Bryan, Shuck, Gary, and Proper Brian as they discuss long-distance gaming – gaming using online platforms, apps and video chat. This is an especially relevant topic during these times of staying in our homes as much as possible. If you are looking for ways to play board games without being together in person, this is the episode for you.

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.
