If you aren’t interested in shopping on Black Friday weekend, we’ve got you covered with one of our FAVORITE episodes. Every year we dive into our favorite board games about money and economics AND we invite some board game insider friends to help us learn about some new fun games. I’m super excited that the guys from the No Cube Zone (Coniff, Jordan, and Rippee) join us today to dive in to not only our top-5 games about money or economics, but also their top 5 games to share with family this holiday season.
Plus, we’ll continue the theme by dumping our normal Friday Fintech Segment for a Friday Board Game exclusive. The subscription game company making Hunt A Killer just was named the #6 fastest growing company in the USA by Inc. We’ll dive into the game, how it’s made, what the firm’s focused on, and how exactly a subscription game works with co-founders Ryan Hogan and Derrick Smith.
It’s nearly two hours of board game goodness, friends, and Thanksgiving weekend discussions. We’re thankful you’re spending it with us! Enjoy!
