Cult of the New Board Game Podcast Episode 031 – All About Airecon

Episode 031! and it’s late, I’m so so sorry! Noisy Neighbours, Illness and then locking myself out my own website… it’s been one of those weeks.

Anyway, this is all about my trip up north to Bradford for Airecon. There’s also the News and Kickstarters and THREE weeks worth of new releases.

Here are links to the sites I talk about on the show…

In the Gathering I do a top 10 of the games I’ve played over the last year but haven’t spoken about on the show yet… I needed to clear that list! 🙂

Sorry for the lack of energy and overly quick talking, it’s been a busy, tiring week here! I’ll be back on it next episode in time for v2 😉
