Laugh out loud funny, good banter and reviews like being at the pub with your friends.

I could say a million positive things about this show. But all I really need to say is that, as someone who hosts their own podcast and subscribes to dozens of others, this is the only podcast that I never miss an episode of. Something about the chemistry between the founders and the Jamie’s...Read full review »

Simply the best. Best reviews, best banter, best discussions, best hosts, best Tony, and, erm, best jokes?

You are a board game podcast! Politics killed the NFL for me. Now politics have killed my favorite podcast for me. Kids at a school were fighting against medical tyranny and the secret cabal thought they were wrong. It’s their right to fight back against a mandate which is not law! Once again...Read full review »

There are no other board game podcasts that come anywhere close to the quality of this show. You can tell the Founders put their heart and souls into every aspect of the show, from the banter to the reviews to the short topics. It’s an inclusive podcast that has something for everyone. Out of the...Read full review »

This podcast has really gotten me through this long year, so glad to have found this group of misfits. Great laughs and great reviews.

I’ve been listening to the Secret Cabal for about 5 years now, and even though we have never met in person, they feel like friends. I love the lighthearted conversational style they have while still delivering great board game content. It’s just fun to listen to. While there are several...Read full review »

New to this podcast and love it. I hope they talk about mordheim from games workshop.

Really enjoyed your new Battletome podcast. I dabble in both board and miniature games, so it’s really nice to have you guys covering both. Fantastic podcasts. Highly recommended for casual and serious gamers (I’m somewhere in between).
Sworc via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/20/21
Hands down, The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast is the best gaming podcast going today. I’ve been a loyal cabalist for 3 years and look forward to every episode. The guys have an incredible chemistry that’s absolutely undeniable with consistent content that’s always well produced. As a listener, the...Read full review »

There are a ton of board game podcasts out there. Some are great, some are good, but this one feels like home. It’s like hanging out with your best friends on a game night.

Every time Jamie says fanTAStic in his crazy Pennsylvania accent... take a drink. You’ll be hammered within 20 minutes.
PositivityinPodcasting via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
Got to say this is one of my favourite podcasts to listen to. The amount of laughs this gives me is astounding. That mixed with great content on all things board games (and then some). Thanks for keeping the episodes going during this time, kept me going whilst at work.
tjtommytj via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/20/20
This is the best boardgame podcast out there, and I listen to quite a few. Whenever a new episode airs, it goes right to the top of the play que.
Prebolas via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 04/17/20
I found a quarter while I was listening to Secret Cabal so it just makes cents.
HoboCop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/20
Podcasts are a great way to pass the time during a commute. Commutes on average are 30 to 60 minutes long. Please make the podcasts no more than 2 hours in length.... Interesting insight but lots of fluff that could be cut out.
wolfpelt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/20
My only regret is that I didn’t discover the Secret Cabal sooner. This has quickly become my favorite podcast across all genres. Listening to the hosts (the Founders) feels like I’m listening in on a conversation between my friends. I love the broad range of personalities, tastes, and discussion...Read full review »

I have loved the main show for years. Definitely my go-to podcast. I’d love to get more Lords of the Dungeon! It is becoming my favorite part!
FoggyPlanet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/20
Tried to listen to the Cthulhu review, couldn’t make it past the intro, so I skipped ahead to the review portion and it was just as bad. Forced laughter at inside jokes, faked excitement, and conversations that don’t need to be shared outside of their gaming group aren’t making for a good podcast.
BadFlag via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/20
By far the best gaming podcast. These guys know their games and they have great chemistry. I love how they rip on eachother and get all fired up. My only complaint is that there isn’t a show every week! Always jonesing for more Cabal on the off weeks. Great production quality too. Lots of...Read full review »

As a matter of fact, best of all the podcasts I listen to!!!

I enjoyed this podcast. You described my Marine Crusade Army to a tee. I started it in 2002. Martian red dust and named plates for all the marines.

Gaming Conqueror via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/19
Where to start? These guys simply are the best, it`s as if you are part of the group and listen to your buddies talk about all things gaming related. Funny, crazy, often insightful - and never boring! It is by far my favorite podcast when it comes to gaming, I never miss an episode and always...Read full review »

You guys are awesome. Listening to you Podcast helps get me and a friend of mine through our 12 hour work shifts. The info you provide is great and the way you guys interact with each other reminds us of our own gaming group. Steve’s jokes definitely entertain us, Jamie’s hard work absolutely...Read full review »

Super fun podcast about games. I find myself laughing all the time. Only issue is the podcast is too short!

Wish you guys would get this lords of the dungeon crap outta my face! Make a separate podcast for it please!
Tommy Clay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/19
I like a lot of boardgame podcasts, but these guys are just the best. Great for long drives, walking the dog or during miniature painting! Love them.
Sann7 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 05/13/19
This is, hands down, the best table top gaming podcast there is. If you’re into the hobby but not subscribed to the Secret Cabal then you’re really missing out. The hosts (aka the Founders) are knowledgable and entertaining; I’ve listened to so many episodes where I couldn’t care about the game...Read full review »
D_Bailey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/19
This show never fails to entertain. Jamie, Chris, Tony, Brian, and Steve sound like a great gang of dudes to hang out with and play games with. The show is entertaining, and once you know their personalities, listening to an episode just feels like hanging out with your buddies.
Phil Campeau via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/07/19
I've been listening for 3 years. Production quality is great, each of the founders is great. Super reviews of games, new and old. Always entertainingRead full review »

The chemistry between the founders makes this podcast one of my favorites. They are informative, funny, and offer more than enough variety to keep me coming back for more. Thanks to the Secret Cabal, my interests have expanded beyond board games to RPGs and miniature gaming. This is the one I...Read full review »
omerta518 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/19
These guys are a kick and Jamie produces a great show despite Steve’s mostly horrible jokes. If you’re a BoardGames enthusiast this show is a must Listen!!!
jermburks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/19
The content is good, but the episodes are way too long. Fitting these shows in is tough even during my commute. Even trying to recommend this podcast, people are instantly turned off when they hear episodes are 3.5 hours long. I subscribe and have backed them on Kickstarter, as I have similar...Read full review »

Long time and devoted listener. Love the banter, the excellently crafted and amazingly informative reviews, the news captained by the philosopher and scholar Tony Topper, and of course the humour , we all thank you Steve.

My favorite gaming podcast. The guys have reached an awesome place and they are making it harder to endure the other podcasts until the next episode of the Secret Cabal or Lords of the Dungeon come out.
Mgs72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/18
So how many podcasts do you know of where you get the urge to go back in time and listen to the previous 140 episodes just because its so engaging you can't get enough of it? This one for a start. No, seriously...the early episodes are still worth their weight in silicon, so do it. Go back...Read full review »

Hilarious podcast by such a mad group of board game geeks. Great insight and opinions, and always happy to make an occasional Tom Vassal joke.
User%Error via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/28/18
What a podcast!! Have listened since day 1 but only just now rated it. I have gotten rid of most podcasts on my subscription list, even dicetower, because of these guys.
Coup_de_grace via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/26/18
And that’s not being hyperbolic! The passion that the founders bring shines through in every episode. My own collection has been heavily influenced by this show; undoubtedly more than by any other source. These folks, for me, represent the spirit of fun, camaraderie, and welcomeness of the gaming...Read full review »

Great banter, balanced host personalities, no wasted time, and no ego. This is the best of the best.
TheSquidKing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/18
This is a fun and excelently produced podcast. I am personally not a fan of dungeon crawls or RPGs so there is often content that is less interesting to me. But I love hearing the perspective these guys have on tabletop games. Keep up the good work fellas. It would receive five stars, but they...Read full review »

When it comes to 3 hour long podcasts I don’t tend to listen to them, because much of the time they seemed like they should have been edited down to an hour. Unless it’s the Secret Cabal. Then I can’t wait for the next episode. This is only gaming podcast I’ve come across that combines a very...Read full review »
