Wooden Cubes & Iron Soldiers: “Everybody hates Jesse Dean, with Special Guest: Jesse Dean!” Episode 10
“Everybody hates Jesse Dean, with Special Guest: Jesse Dean!”
Welcome back for our tenth episode of Wooden Cubes & Iron Soldiers!
In this episode we are joined by Board Game Blogger extraordinaire: Jesse Dean. Before diving in to talk about some of the recent discussion/kerfuffle/hornet’s nest/meta-critique on board game criticism and analysis… which is all Jesse’s fault, we briefly discuss some games we have recently played including Descent, Hemloch, Mage Wars, Quebec, and Le Havre.
During the show we also discuss some other recent blogs and articles on this subject. I have included them here for your reference:
