The Die Is Podcast

In this episode, Brandon falls further in love with terrible mobile games. He just can't get enough of that crap sandwich. And neither can Chris, as he plays Crashlands and digs deeper into Blades in the Dark on his iPad. Luckily, both of us have played Onitama, a cool "Chess-like" that could supplant it's relatives...

In this episode, we discuss the elements that video games and board games share that make them both fun. What is the crossover?

In this episode, Brandon plays a couple of Xbox games, while Chris tries to convince us all that flicking disks is as fun as throwing beanbags. Mostly, we just talk about a free-to-play mobile game that actually doesn't suck. But we sprinkle in some other games to make sure it doesn't get too intense.
