Jordan Hopper from The No Cube Zone Podcast stops by Gumbo Live! BJ and Steve chat with him about the history of the podcast, what are the future plans for the group, Jordan's favorite games, and play an impromptu try at Board Game Gumbo: The Mind. This game could work! But it needs more time in the gumbo pot before serving.
