Episode 225 – Reviewer’s Dilemma w/Jason Perez

This week Anthony is on vacation, but the games don’t stop, nor do the reviews. Jason Perez from Every Night is Game Night (@engn_podcast) joins Chris to fill in this week and discuss the dilemma of paid and sponsored reviews.

To kick things off, we remind everyone about our revamped Patreon contest, which will be running every week from Thursday to Monday on Patreon.com/bga.

Then we share answers to our question of the week, If you’re traveling with minimal luggage, what’s your go-to game for the airplane or hotel?

Acquisition disorders this week include Roll Players: Fiends and Familiars from Jason and The Ancient World Second edition from Chris. 

At the table, Jason reviews One Key and Chris reviews Batman: Gotham City Chronicles.

Finally, they discuss the big question about reviewers and their approach to paid and sponsored content.
