It's All Fun And Board Games On This Show!

Oct 1, 2019

Today's show might get a bit dicey. In fact,  it's almost certainly headed for Trouble. And all we can say is Sorry, that's Life! Okay, fine, let's drop the Charades. Today's show is about board games. Is that a big enough Clue?

From classics like Monopoly, Candyland, and Scrabble to current megahits like Magic, Gloomhaven, and Dungeons and Dragons, board games have been bringing people together for ages. And in a time full of polarizing issues and digital divides, maybe that's just what we need.

This hour, we'll talk with board-game designers and industry experts about the best new titles on the market, what it takes to make a really great game and where the industry is going next.

We'll also explore the ancient Chinese game Go, and hear how Google's new AlphaGo program is squaring off against today's top players.
