  • Just stop

    The game reviews and descriptions are fine and good. The “woke” narratives and the “scary covid” commentary is quite honestly, triggering. We hear that nonsense at every turn in our lives. Most people are listing too gaming podcasts for escapism. Just please keep your politics and scare tactics to yourselves. more

I still recommended it if you are trying to decide on your next board game purchase.

    The Five By is one of the best board game podcasts precisely because of its constrained format. Five reviews of five minutes each, from five different reviewers, and nothing else. But, also, the reviews are solid, a variety of viewpoints is represented, and the audio quality is high - none of which are givens in board game media. Personally, I also like that the focus is not exclusively on new games - The Five By is a great way to discover neglected games, also. Easily on of my favorite board ga... more
