These aren't your grandmother's board games
Wingspan, Pandemic, Root. There's a board game on every topic these days.
Games have come a long way since Monopoly and the early days of Dungeons and Dragons, and new titles are coming out every month. As COVID-19 restrictions have eased, more people are getting together with friends and duking it out around the table.
This hour, we talk with some adult board game enthusiasts who believe playing keeps their brains sharp and their social skills alive.
Our guests are:
- Kerry Winger, owner of The Boardroom in Burlington
- Anna Vann, founder of Friendly Tabletop Gamers of Essex & Beyond
- Dave Goodwin, gamer and volunteer game teacher
Here are some of the games that the guests and listeners recommended:Brass: Birmingham
