On Board Games
A show about board and card games. The guys of On Board Games discuss games from the viewpoints of new and expert players, reviewers, and people from the industry, to allow listeners insight into the gaming hobby so they can enjoy games more thoroughly.

In this episode, Erik and Kathleen play some fun parody songs about boardgames.

You read that right.

We are also asking you to get in on the act. Send us your best parody song(s) by April 25, 2020 to be entered in to a contest for a $50 gift card to Miniature Market. You will not be judged on the quality of your singing but rather the creativeness of your content.
