Boards Alive Podcast

Boards Alive is a podcast where we talk about tabletop games. Our goal is to show that tabletop gaming can be just as exciting and engaging as Hollywood movies or big budget video games. We try to highlight games that have a rich theme that connects with the mechanics of the game. We want to help people escape into tabletop games and enjoy the competition and camaraderie of gaming.

In our sixty-second episode, we hope you're in a giving mood because we talk about the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction and our items up for bid and talk about a board game subscription box called Board Game Bento. Then we talk about what we’ve been playing recently. We also review the space exploration sandbox game Xia: Legends of a Drift System. Then we talk about Overused & Underused Themes in Board Games and pitch a couple games with underused themes.
