Ultralight: The best of the lightest of games, Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast Episode 138

Ultralight: The Best of the Lightest of Games.

This week we’ve got one of our fantastic Patreon patrons looking for ultralight game suggestions and we’ve got a bunch of them! This is followed up by a review of a prototype copy of Flicking Finches, an Evolution in Dexterity Games, and a return to Roguebook, the digital deck builder by Richard Garfield, where we talk about what’s changed since the beta now that the game is fully released. Plus first thoughts on Guild Master, and Sean tries Aeon’s End for the first time.

Episode 138 of the Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast, recorded June 30th, 2021.
