Free Play 75 | Top 8 Tabletop Games of 2019


About This Episode

Well, we did it.  This is the last Free Play episode of 2019 and Matt and I are in the same room to record it!  With all of the games that came out this year, we thought it would be a good idea to do the most creative thing we would think of, so we came up with what we thought were the top 8 tabletop games released this year and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
