The Mile High Game Guys are three friends in the Denver area with a passion for playing and talking about boardgames! We focus on giving in-depth news and reviews in a casual and approachable manner. Thanks for giving us a listen!


Jul 28, 2016

   In this episode we start off talking a bit about what we've been playing recently, a topic filled with cutting edge games like Catan, Love Letter, Cribbage, and Euchre.

Then we get on into the meat of the episode: Purchasing games! We discuss our preferences for where to acquire new games while debating the benefits of both online ordering and supporting your local game store. After we've established where we buy our games we move on into a chat about researching (or not) before purchasing a new game. This derails briefly into a discussion of our experiences with Munchkin and Marvel Dice Masters which in turn lead right into our debate about when we feel like a game is "worth it". To finish this segment we discuss purchasing and subsequently adding expansions to our games or, in the case of a few expansions, just letting them sit on a shelf and look pretty.

Enjoy and don't forget to get in touch with us through social media and let us know what you would like to hear us talk about. We can be reached individually at Adrian, Jeff, or Zach @milehighgameguys or collectively at, you can find us on twitter @MHgameguys or on FB at!
