Originally Aired 9/13/2018
Before Brass hit number one on the BGG charts the Snobs discussed both Brass games (like every other BG podcast likewise did).  Is one superior over the other? Why does Jerry not consider them Euros?  Was Gaby happy with his deluxe kickstarter game Rise of Tribes?  Did Micheal Bay direct Con Air? These questions and more answered this episode.  Probably not correctly, but they're answered nonetheless.

Board Game Snobs

A podcast started by two friends, Gaby and Jerry, with a vision.  They lost that vision and instead drink, banter and sometimes get around to discussing board game stuff, but it's not about the destination, it's about enjoying the journey.
