Surprisingly Easy Board Games: Heavy games that are easy to teach and learn, Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast Episode 106

Surprisingly Easy Board Games – Heavy games that are easy to teach and learn. A follow up to our topic from a few weeks back where we talked about surprisingly complex games. Today we are looking at the flip side of the coin with surprisingly easy games. Once we get to The Game Room we will be looking at Trade & Intrigue, the second expansion for Orleans featuring four optional modules and Flick Wars a dexterity based strategy wargame, plus, of course, we end off with our usual week in review.
