Cult of the New Board Game Podcast Episode 023 – Zero Marks!

Cult of the New Board Game Podcast Episode 023 – Zero Marks!

Episode 23! and I’m awarding this podcast 0 Marks because it doesn’t have a Mark in it. He’s taking a break so it’s just me this time…. It’s a much shorter episode than normal and I did all I could to make sure the audio quality is up to scratch.

I talk about a game I played that I mentioned I bought in the last episode. I go on to look at the latest releases, the latest board game news and a few Kickstarters including one quite personal to me.

As it’s just me I skipped the end topic but it will be back next time!
