The Long View: Conventions and Compressed Games

LongViewLogo

In this episode of The Long View, Geof Gambill and I discuss the conventions we attended during the month of November, and three wonderful, compressed games. These are games that are more than just a light, quick, filler. They are games that give you a full game experience, compressed into a quick playing time. Not a filler, not a super filler. These are games meaty enough to qualify as a main course! Join Geof and I as we discuss Biblios, Council of Verona and Mamma Mia!.
