How To Teach Board Games Like a Pro

This week Matt begged Quinns to revisit a topic he’s talked about a little before: what tips could he impart for mastering “The Teach”?

An Intro to Board Gaming, For your Friends!

An Intro to Board Gaming

Quinns: Also in celebration of our 2nd anniversary, we’ve done something a bit different. And hopefully, a bit useful.

Happy anniversary, everybody. We love you.
