This week on The Game Table we catch up with Nathan Cocks, ex-videogames journo turned boardgame junkie, as he brings us up to speed on the health of the boardgame industry over the past few years.
Nathan brings around 20 suggestions for great games you could hunt down that you may not have heard of – avoiding the obvious stuff like Catan and Ticket To Ride, digging into the deeper stuff out there that is amazing fun for all sorts of different kinds of experiences.
Plus we drop a few tips on sites and Australian events to help you dive deeper into the boardgame scene.
