The Royal Society of Gamers is a podcast about board games, card games and anything related. We cover boardgaming news, reviews as well as interviews and in-depth analysis of gaming issues.
If you have any comments or suggestions about the show then please send them to podcast at royalsocietyofgamers.com.
