Allies in Fun: Our Favourite Cooperative Board Games, Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast Episode 212

Tonight we try to help someone decide what cooperative game to buy next, including a list of our favourite cooperative board games. We then have three reviews: Trickdraw, a fast flipping card game, Outsmarted!, a modern take on trivia board games, and The Orbital Box x2, a puzzle box you have to build yourself. This is followed by our usual week in review with my first Holiday Hijinx experience, our first play of Aurum, and more.

Episode 212 of the Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast was recorded on July 5th, 2023.

Join us as when we record live weekly on Twitch at 8pm Eastern.
