Episode 31 - Play This, Not That - Part 1

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Welcome to Episode 31 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join Just Bryan, Shuck, Gary, and Proper Brian as they talk about games to play instead of some older classics or mass market games. There are times to play games like Jenga or Hearts but if the opportunity arises to play something more on the hobby side of things, what do you suggest? We take each classic game and offer hobby game suggestions that match the feel or mechanisms of the classic.
