In this episode, Thomas and Al talk about board games with apps, both as an assistant and as an integral part of the gaming experience. We talk about how and when the mix of digital and physical mediums complements one another. We also consider why some people may be hesitant to embrace such a thing. Hey, you got your app in my board game! Well, you got your board game in my app! It’s the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups of gaming. Does technology have a place in hobby gaming or never the two shall meet?

The discussion continues with this episode’s guest, Seth Locke of FatNastyNerd Runthroughs YouTube channel. He also talks about his experiences as a content creator and what he’s learned in the past 3+ years.
