Barb, Matt and Ella re-launch the Players Wanted Podcast, a board gaming podcast dedicated to bringing new gamers into the hobby and helping them thrive. In this episode, we discuss what it takes to introduce people to board games and why we chose board games as a hobby in the first place.
We also debate the geology of Australia, teach incorrect facts about snakes and otherwise embarrass ourselves.
Oh, and we talk about a whole bunch of board games.
