ENGN 175 – Best in Class and Top Ten; Miniatures in Board Games with Sam Healey

For our 175th episode (nice round number!), Jason welcomes Dice Tower veteran and current outreach manager for Mythic Games, Sam Healey. He is famous in the gaming community for his love of miniatures in board games, so we could think of no on better to chat about the subject. We answer the critical question – what is the point of them? Jason gets to play some fun Devil’s advocate in this one!

We then get into Sam’s Top Ten Board Games with miniatures (38:00), which hopefully will give you some ideas about what to get if you want to explore the world of minis a bit further. Finally, we briefly mention the Best in Class for solo gamer miniature games, by popular acclaim – Kingdom Death: Monster.

This is a long one, but worthy. Hope you all agree!
