Episode 31 - 'Surprising' games
Antoinette and Oliver talk about the games that surprised them most. You've probably found this yourself when you play a game that you were really excited about, but then it wasn't quite as good as you expected. Or maybe you bought a game without any expectations and it became your all-time favourite evergreen board game. That's exactly the sort of thing that Antoinette and Oliver are talking about in this episode. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tabletopinquisition/message
