The Spiel

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. The Spiel and its media network are part of The Spiel Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to making the world a more playful place. We believe play is a powerful positive force in the world. Our goal with the show 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!
