The guys dive into one of Nathan's favorite geek topics: board games, also called tabletop games. Chris and Dallas ask him how he got started with gaming, talk about the different kinds of tabletop games, and discuss some of their favorites. They share their thoughts on the community-building aspects of gaming, and help listeners with where they can find games.
