Gumbo Live!

Do you like talking about board games?  Board Game Gumbo, a proud member of Punch Board Media, has a weekly Facebook Live! talk show dedicated to board gaming.  Gumbo Live! is hosted by BJ from Board Game Gumbo, with help from Games Producer, Steve “The Name Father”, and Gumbo Overlord, Verla “The Board Game Ambassador”. Plus, they are always  getting pop in visits from friends of the show like Jason Dinger, Jeremy Howard, Jay Bell, and more! 

Each Tuesday night at 8:30 PM CST on Gumbo Live!, BJ and the rest of the Krewe interview industry guests, designers, artists, and gamers about their favorite games, the latest board game news, gaming topics, and convention coverage. Plus, they will chat about the spicy hot games that they see on their gaming tables…and even play a game or two with the Chat Krewe!
