Episode 47 - Courtroom Melodrama

This week on Brainwaves Iain Chantler is on trial for crimes too heinous to write down! With the proceedings out of the way the team gather to pour over the last fortnight in boardgame news: CMON trading statement, Kickstarter cuts, Game store owner arrested and companies support for your FLGS. We look at Roll20 and the ways it can help you roleplay online.
