The Die Is Podcast

In this episode, we discuss the digitizations of board games, transforming a three-hour table hog into something you can carry around in your pocket and knock out in 30 minutes without ever interacting with another person. What are the reasons games undergo this transformation? Are there arguments why they shouldn't? What makes a good adaptation? What makes a bad one? And what are the best and worst board game apps out there?

Also, we announce the winner of our Tak Contest! Is it you?
