The State of Games, Ep. 166: The One About Spoilers

stateofgameslogonewSpoilers are a huge part of our modern culture, and many of us avoid them at all costs. It’s easy to recognize the aversion in blockbuster screen media, and even in the hottest TV shows, but does that culture automatically translate to the board game hobby? In this episode, we dive deep into what sort of spoilers are accepted, which are not, and how best we all might tackle them as consumers and reviewers. We also spoil a couple of parts of Avengers: Endgame, so maybe make sure you’re up to date on your Marvel movies. That’s an official SPOILER ALERT!

  1. Denyries named her three dragons after real people. Drogon was not a derivative of dragon. It was a derivative of her first husband’s name, Drogo.
    Drogo, Drogon.
    Viscereon was named after her brother Visceries.

    Your comment submission system has a problem processing my comment. Says it might be too short? So this is making it a bit longer. But, why would your comment submission system discourage short comments? Seems ridiculous.
