by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

In this episode the guys end the year with a discussion of game endings. From scoring systems to end-game conditions, this podcast is loaded with design intrigue on why games may employ their respective mechanism, which end-game and scoring systems the guys like, and which ones they’d rather do without.
