Iain Chantler has been given time off by Jamie so it’s up the remaining Iain to fill the shoes of two Iains! With fewer big news stories than recently the team have an interview with Ian Parovel of Boardgame Arena regarding their recent acquisition by Asmodee. On top of that they cover some updates to Wizards of the Coasts legal entanglements, the world of Pokemon scalpers, and an ancient game brought back to life in beautiful detail. All this, and more, on this episode of Brainwaves
