VR-Logo-postWelcome back to Vox Republica, the Cardboard Republic Podcast!

We post new episodes every Thursday, and each episode will be about 20 – 30 minutes long.

Worker Placement games have exploded in recent years, and they don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Is that good for the hobby? We explore the positives and negatives of this uptick of the worker placement mechanic, including why they originated the way they did, how they diversify themselves in the market of today, and what the future may hold for it.
