Four Corners Of The Board Podcast

Sinopse

Four Corners of the Board is hosted by 4 friends who enjoy getting together and playing board games. We are all relatively new to the hobby (a few years) and all have very different preferences of board games which can lead into some lively discussions!Each podcast we take one board game and discuss it in depth. What we like and don't like about the game and maybe some ways we will play it differently in the future (variants).
