Dice Guys Audio Podcast 007: Adventures on Cardboard

Like your boardgames served up Indian Jones style? We have a couple of those this week. Mike reviews his Pick of the Week from the last podcast — is he vindicated for picking an unopened game? And has the sexualized depiction of women in role play and computer gaming filtered down to board games now? All of this and Brain Flakes in this episode of The Dice Guys — which has nothing to do with 007. Mike just likes 007. A lot. So deal.

SHOW NOTES

  • Mike did nothing this week but work, anticipate episode Double-Oh Seven coming up, and get mad at Oklahoma drivers.
  • Jason’s daughter’s gaming group visited and they played some more Gamma World.
