Episode 94 - Did You Notice A Theme?

Ambie and Crystal discuss a book Tortured Cardboard, and a couple games they've played recently, including Roll Estate and Silver & Gold. We then talk about how theme, specifically light themes and dark themes, can affect a game. In this week's "Board Game Etymology" segment, Crystal discusses the origins of the word "point."
