A conversation on Reddit in 2015 inspired three women who were total strangers to join forces and start a podcast. From that conversation between Ambie, Cassadi, and Crystal, Board Game Blitz was born: the first all-female board game podcast to regularly and consistently release content.

We know that women are underrepresented in the board game industry and wanted to add our voices, talents, and opinions to the mix to help elevate and equalize gender representation in board game media.

Every episode of the podcast is 30 minutes or less. We know that time is a commodity, so we strive to create content that you can easily digest on your daily commute, during your workout, or when you’re relaxing at home after a long day. You'd be surprised how deep the conversations about games and the gaming hobby can get in such a short amount of time! We also have an etymology segment at the end of each episode because Crystal is a word nerd (and because people apparently really like hearing about etymology!)

Cassadi needed to leave the show in 2018 so she could dedicate extra time to her family but she will forever be part of our team and you may still hear her pop up in our content now and then! 

In addition to the podcast, Ambie and Crystal are contributors to The Dice Tower. The podcast is part of The Dice Tower Network and Ambie and Crystal do both live and pre-produced videos that appear on The Dice Tower YouTube channel.

So why become a patron?

While podcasting and making videos is a hobby that we love, it isn’t free to do. We have to pay for web hosting, server space, equipment and more. And we spend a lot of time creating all of the content we put out. By supporting the show, you’ll help us do a lot of awesome stuff like:

  • Pay for our web hosting and servers
  • Upgrade our equipment
  • Help us get better prizes for future contests
  • Attend more conventions
  • Record a live show at a convention

Our show will always be free to listen to and enjoy but we want to thank anyone who becomes a patron of our show with some exclusive rewards. Even a single dollar can make a world of difference. Those small pledges can really add up!

Thanks for taking the time to read this page, listen to our content, share it with others, and for just being you. We wouldn’t be where we are without all of our amazing Blitzketeers, so... sincerely, thank you from the bottom of our meeple-shaped hearts.
