Boards Alive is a podcast that talks about tabletop games. Their goal is to show that tabletop gaming can be just as exciting and engaging as Hollywood movies or big budget video games. They try to highlight games that have a rich theme that connects with the mechanics of the game. Boards Alive wants to help people escape into tabletop games and enjoy the competition and camaraderie of gaming.
