WWPD News From the Front

Episode 19 of Bolt Action Radio finds The BAR frozen over, courtesy of General Winter. Baxter takes his snow suit off long enough to sit down and have a drink with Dano and Judson. The patrons talk about some upcoming events in the community, some recent miniature companies they've dealt with, some shop talk, and go out of their way to make this episode about everything but tournament play. Drinks are mentioned, and speaking of drinks, soldier of fortune Dano's picking up the tab tonight!

In this episode, the distracted gamers put on their thinking caps and attempt a thorough analysis of "Tile Placement" and "Worker Placement" mechanics in board games (see here for the excellent breakdown we reference).
