When is a board game too pretty? Board game graphic design taken too far, Tabletop Bellhop Gaming Podcast Episode 213

In this episode, we talk about art in board games and how it can be taken too far. We then have a preview of the latest rendition of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks. That is followed by two reviews, Illiterati, a co-op word game, and The Independence Incident, a small escape room in a box style game. We then wrap up with a rather busy week in review.
