Episode 92 - Tech Invasion

It’s back to a more news focused cast this time round as Jamie and Iain put together the highlights of the last two weeks in Tabletop industry news. NFTs cause a stir once more, Kickstarter slows their blockchain plans, and Ravensburger buddies up with a surprising partner. Alongside our headlines we look at the finances of Wizards of the Coast, remember Teburu, dig for Dice, and sing a song with the Dungeons and Dragons musical.
