Episode 46 - Non-Euclidean Coffee

The Team are all together in Brainwaves HQ and Iain C has made his way back from the non-euclidean geometry of the coffee machine. Joining Jamie and Iain M they dive into the news ocean once more to bring you the juiciest pearls. This week they cover the Far Verona cancellation, the passing of a TSR founder, CMON trading woes, Asmodee generosity, Z-Man on Pandemic and much, much more. Iain M has been busy putting together a new corner of the studio to help out those stuck at home with online gaming, and the team chat about the merits of Tabletop Simulator.
