This month, guest John DuBois joins us to talk about accessibility in tabletop gaming. We cover not just physical accessibility, but discuss topics like language, cognition, and socio-economic factors. A couple of resources mentioned: Meeple Like Us and Gaming for Justice.

 

As always we wrap up with Pet Corner, and What’s Making Us Happy this month! We hope you enjoy, and let us know what you think of this topic over on our BGG podcast page or on Twitter.

This month, we talk about how we react to and deal with problematic themes in games, or games that are problematic overall for certain situations. Whether they're classics, upcoming on Kickstarter, or the new hotness, what can we do to address what makes us uncomfortable? Where do our real life experiences and games cross over and how can that be negotiated? After that discussion, we have our homework segment, what's making us happy and pet corner, as always. Happy new year, folks!
