Origins 2023 – A Week of Board Games to Remember

The Board Game Rundown was at Origins 2023, and they have a lot to share with you. Check out the links below to see who they ran into and what they did:

Origins Introduction – Tim and Spencer talk about what excites them most being at Origins.

Exclusive Interview with Martin Wallace – Tim asks Martin Wallace about old classics and upcoming titles, such as Bloodstones and Fantasy Fighting Adventure.

Interview with Eric Lang – Eric Lang of Ankh fame can’t get past Tim’s booth without having to talk about games, design, and IP management.
