Episode 89 - Knight’s Dawn

It’s a slow start to the year for the team as they shake off their hibernation and get back behind the news desk. The news is anything but sleep though with the acquisition of Asmodee, changes at the top of Hasbro, and famous folk getting Knighted. Welcome back to the Brainwaves HQ for another year of tabletop gaming news.
