The Tabletop Bellhop, your cardboard concierge, is here to answer your game and game night questions. We’re striving to make everyone’s gaming experience better, with board game and RPG reviews, and Q&A.
We’re taking it easy this episode, answering some shorter questions from our questions pile, as well as answering questions in real time from The Lobby, our chatroom on Twitch. Interestingly all of these questions end up evolving into a longer discussion on the relation between video games and board games. After that, we review Siege of Valeria, the last of the new small box Valeria games.
