The Spiel is a show about games and the people who love them. Each episode, we review and discuss a new board game or card game. Each game reviewed receives a Major Fun or Spiel of Approval award, our badge of quality. Older episodes (220 and earlier) feature a variety show format with game reviews and interviews. We here at The Spiel know fun. We are passionate about play as an essential and often forgotten part of life as we grow. Our goal is open a door to the wider world of games to as many people as we can. Have a listen. I hope you'll be inspired to find a friend and play!

Customer Reviews

Excellent show on gaming!

Great podcast on gaming. Segments are well-thought-out and unique and the casters are definitely well-versed in the gaming world. Definitely check out episodes 12 and LATER...early episodes have very poor audio quality and that should NOT turn you away from a great podcast. 12+ have EXCELLENT quality audio! -Zach

My #1 favorite board game podcast.

These guys are knowledgeable and likeable, and their production value is top notch. More importantly, they're all fired up about games and playing them - and their excitement is contageous! Be sure to watch the podcast picture change throughout. They include lots of pics of game bits as they describe it, which helps immensely. For my hard drive space I actually prefer this audio 'cast with pics, over all other game video 'casts. Thanks guys - keep it up!

Great Podcast

If you are into games this is a wonderful Podcast. If you are looking for a great game Podcast look no further. These guys really know their stuff!! Also included are all the links you would ever need to find the games mentioned. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is sometimes the audio is a bit off, but I'm sure that will get fixed. Fantastic job guys keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing more.
