May 1, 2017

Welcome to the Asynchronous Multiplayer Podcast! Pontifications from a family who games together… separately.

 

This week we celebrate International TableTop Day by playing a terrible board game. Fortunately, it’s one of those newfangled “consumable” board games, so we don’t have to play it again. How’s that for finding the silver lining?

We also get two new Switch games, and we’re absolutely sure we love at least half of them.

Lotus

Wits and Wagers Family

Dohdles

Ghost Fightin’ Treasure Hunters
