This show is my favorite board game podcast. I feel too many shows focus on reviews and only tackling the new and the hot. TGiB focuses on the fun first. All of the hosts, both past and present, are amazing and funny. It is always a highlight of my day when it drops and I cannot recommend enough!

A fun group having a fun time that is fun to listen to.

This game is broken is the best board game game show podcast in the world. I still stand by it!

Matt Nick Mike Dave and Paula are hilarious. Love this unconventional board game content.

I’m late to the party and just discovered TGIB but I’ve been binging. Such a funny show. I literally laugh out loud every episode.
HaleyABCD via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/22
A fun podcast featuring Dudley’s second favourite son Matthew “Punny penguin popper” Jude, Dave “Musical medley maestro” Luza, Paula “Impish improvising imagineer” Deming, Michael “Wonderous white witch” Murphy and yhpruM “nosrep cimordnilap yksep” kciN

I love this show. I am late coming to the show, just started listening two months ago but now I am going back to listen to all the episodes. I could listen to this show all day! The games are interesting and well thought out, the humor is effortless and witty. I am just going to be sad when I...Read full review »

Pure Creamy Fun and Shrek Goodness.
Mr Poppy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/22
I cannot explain to you how much fun this show is. This is the best board gaming podcast that’s also not really about board games. I listen to a lot of podcast, several board game podcasts, and this is by far the best one. Whenever I need a good laugh THIS is the show I turn to.
GoardBames via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/22
Best board game podcast. I’ve discovered this recently and have binged it nonstop. Soooooo good.
Hoz12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/21
If you like board games and need some light relief this show is what you need. Just Brilliant 🤩😎🤣
MJ874 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/13/21
That’s it. That’s the review. I was a late fan of the NPR quiz show, and I am a late fan of This Game Is Broken. If this relation has been made, I apologize for repetition, but it really IS the boardgame equivalent of that quiz show, and it’s HILARIOUS!

I just saw a previous reviewer whose review was titled “Asenine,” followed up with “Nuff said.” This review was a 1. I would like repeat the sentiment with a rating of 5. Asenine. Nuff said. 5 Stars.
Aut P via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/20
This show leaves me confused. Is it the most brilliant thing that’s ever come to Board Game media? Or is it the sad window into the lives of five humans staring into the eyes of Cthulhu and slowly giving into their own insanity....? The world will never know. Except if it is the later, it is...Read full review »

Easily one of my favorite podcasts! I am always looking for more board game based content to listen too and this show is great. The crew is funny and the content sets itself apart from all of the other board game podcasts out there. Thanks for keeping me entertained guys. Don’t stop!
Cardboardtreasure via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/20
Can’t get enough of this gang of awesome humans. Great podcast, good laughs, awesome boardgame fun... gimme more!
George leb via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/15/20
First time listening. Fun medley of silliness.
ZBirrell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/11/20
So I was late to the party and just started listening to TGIB a few months ago when I was looking for something to make a long car trip seem shorter. I binge listened (totally a thing) to all of the episodes and now just wait for a new one to come out every other week. The cast just fit so well...Read full review »

I love playing along with you guys while I drive in my car. I especially love the musical games when Dave or Matthew write a song about a game. I would buy their albums 😁keep up the good work!
Marshie2014 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/20
This podcast really lost something when Dan exited, but still a really funny and entertaining show. Wish they would refrain from dropping f-bombs (that seems new with Kiki) so I can play it around my kids 🤷‍♂️.

This is, hands on the wheel, best time I've ever had shouting answers at a radio. I love each and every personality on this show, how their individual talents come through, and just their love of play. So grateful to have this to listen to on long days.Read full review »
Gamefreakgeekgirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/19
Sooo I’ve come late to the game. But I’m finally here and I am loving it. I laugh a lot and enjoy all the dumbness that happens. Keep up the good times friends!
Ceeawalker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/19
I often find myself laughing out loud and shouting out answers. Dave, Nick, Mike, Matthew, and Kiki are some of my favorite people.
MistressMissy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
Even when I don’t recognize all the games (although I’m getting more knowledge as a result of listening), I can always find something that amuses me.
AmyKathS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/19
If you love the Saturday morning NPR quiz shows, board games, and sarcastic/sardonic/self-deprecating humor, you have to give this show a listen! I suggest listening to at least two episodes before deciding what you think, because a great part of the fun for me is appreciating the running gags...Read full review »

Bringing fun to the ears of every board gammer! Hell you might even get a few questions right.. I listen to this pod cast everyday on my train ride to’s a very short journey!
proffesoryaffle via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/25/18
This is a great podcast. Host is awesome, and the main panel are hilarious.
yuazzle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/18
Such a fun and different boardgame podcast in a sea of sameness.
AndreasCT via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 07/08/18
If Sir Dan Hughes would be the only host (no boring guesthosts) i would have given this 5 out of 5. Dan is a genious and even looks like a greek statue. He also promised me some timeline promos for this review :)
Mr Huddersfield 2002 via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 06/28/18
Absolutely brilliant humour and we also learn a little bit about board games ;). Two thumbs up!
Fleyn via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 06/20/18
For weeks I’ve used this podcast as I travel to and from work, only to laugh out loud like a complete loon in front of dozens of strangers on the bus who think I’m quite mad, and now avoid me. That being said this is by far my favourite podcast on the Internet, my main complaint I wish it was...Read full review »

The hilarious Shut Up and Sit Down Podcast finally has some real competition! Proving that board game related humor does not have to require quickly turning down the volume or only listening with headphones on—no! These guys are funny in the best way, and giving something new to the board game...Read full review »

Fantastic show with great banter from Dan, Matthew, Dave & the Brothers Murph.
Robert from lincoln via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/14/18
If NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me and Shut Up and Sit Down had a podcast baby (is that even possible?) This Game is Broken would be the result. At only a few episodes in, it’s already a great listen. I’m impressed with the breadth of Games used in the game show, as they aren’t relegated to newer...Read full review »

Having stumbled on this podcast after the loss of Flip the Table, I’ve really enjoyed listening to the same guys I enjoy on YouTube, play a game show. If you're a fan of board game hobby, then this is a MUST listen!Read full review »
Bballrunr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/01/18
This podcast rewards my board game fandom with inside jokes, trivia, and humor than only someone who spends hours a week on BGG would find funny. The hosts have great chemistry, but be warned that there are a few cuss words and the off-color jokes here and there.
Pieforteeth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/17
Love it
bwldrd via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 12/14/17
If you need a podcast to lighten up your day this is it! I am constantly laughing listening to this. Boardgaming + Laughter can’t go wrong, 5 stars to all the hosts!
karthiksetty via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/05/17
If you are into board games and looking for an entertaining podcast- this is the one. There are a bunch of review style podcasts- dice tower should be the go-to there- but this is a nice break from the routine and still gives an idea of which games these guys love/hate.
Informing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/17
There is a real need for podcasts that are game shows. For the game show to be based around board games makes it like inception. Crazy. The scoring within each game though is really what ties the show together. Without such an intricate and innovative scoring system, I think things would fall...Read full review »
KMiddlebrook via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/26/17
This podcast focuses on the secret life of Matthew Jude, winner of “Face of Boardgames” pageant three years in a row. It’s at turns funny and heart wrenching as it slowly becomes clear to the listener how he is being secretly betrayed by those closest to him.
Ganybyte via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/17
I enjoy this podcast because it meets me right where I'm at in my love for board games. Different than the normal board game podcast format, it's not watered down for those new to the hobby. Those who are familiar with games are going to find this the most amusing while newer fans are...Read full review »
Goodsoil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/17
Since the invention of the panel show there have only been five panel shows that were rated the most hilarious, the most entertaining. This one...well this one isn’t as great as those obviously, those ones were amazing! But this one’s great, even with Matthew Jude...ok perhaps that’s a bit much,...Read full review »

I don’t normally write reviews, but I really appreciate “This Game is Broken”. Their comedic quirkiness rival the likes of Flip the Table and coincidentally they fill the FTT-sized whole in my heart. Keep it the great work!
Nathan (neb139) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/17
A great comedy variety show that like the early trains in Britain were funny looking and scared the horses. (This is as much 18XX as I think the show will get). While many joined to listen to the first episodes because of Dan but really hoping to hear of Cora, they have stayed for Dan's...Read full review »
Tselin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/17
A must listen for all human beings. The only negative is that the hosts’ names are too close and it’s confusing telling them apart. If the hosts could change their names so that each starts with a different letter of the alphabet, that would be great! Otherwise perfect!!!
gmacch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/17
This is a dumpster fire, but in a good way! Like if it’s cold outside and you forgot your jacket and you see a dumpster fire you’re like “sweet!”. As you stand there warming your body you start breathing in the fumes and you think, “maybe this was a bad idea?” Then you start to get a little...Read full review »
