Ep 027 – Is Less More, or More, More?

“This Kickstarter Campaign contains more plastic than a Kardashian who is about to hit the red carpet.”

Chaos returns to the Board Game Gateway Studios in this episode as we welcome back Matt after a break. Neeber and Ralph try to reign him in so we can chat about the grandfather of the modern board gaming scene in “Catan”. We also recap some of the shenanigans we have gotten up to in the previous weekend with the airing of Twilight imperium Grievances, a review of some of our online games as well as the creation of our very own Board Game Musical?

Our Discussion question sees us taking a look at the trend of Kickstarter Bloat as well as expanding games with expansions. We have interesting takes and fun times ahead in episode #27.
