Not As Bad As They Look: Ugly Board Games That Play Great – Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast Episode 145

Not as bad as they look.

We start off with the result of our Extra Life Tabletop Appreciation Weekend charity gaming event. Then we’ve got a question from one of our awesome Patreon patrons looking for games we didn’t find visually appealing but that we loved. After that, reviews of the first Unfair Expansion and Guild Master, both from Good Games Publishing, and a quick list of the games we played during our Extra Life event in our week in review.
