The History of Japanese Board Gaming

Join us as we look back over Japanese board game history…. way back! Sure, Japan’s made tons of video game franchises we know and love today, but did you know Nintendo started as a playing card maker? Ever shouted Richi at a table of four? We’ll be covering some of the classics- real classics- all the way to some of Japan’s modern board game wonders like Love Letter and Machi Koro.
