Board Game Gumbo is a blog written by a krewe of gamers located in the heart of Louisiana. The Gumbo travels to conventions, hosts game days, playtests prototypes, and plays lots and lots of new and old games alike. Each week, different writers bring you these adventures with Louisiana flavor! BJ edits the blog, and welcomes contributors who want to talk about that spicy next game, or some gaming lagniappe, or even those voodoo games to avoid. The Krewe also hosts a weekly Gumbo Live! talk show on Facebook Live, which has quickly risen to become the #1 Facebook Live talk show dedicated to the board game hobby.
