The Die Is Podcast

In this episode, we talk about competitive video games, abstract board games, mechanical substance, and empty flash. How much staying power do League of Legends and Starcraft have? How deep do games like that go? Why would you play a game with a small sheet of rules when you could explore a massive game with thousands of options? We talk and talk and talk.

And we give you instructions on how to enter our contest to receive a copy of Tak straight to your door. (Hint: you are going to need to answer a question of the week!)
