225: Board Game Themes - Definitions and Hot Takes with Sarah Shipp

Sarah Shipp joins the show to chat about our favorite subject - themes! This is a discussion where we zoom the lens out and talk about how to define "theme" in general, how they can be used to generate emotional resonance for a player, and where the practice of theming can sometimes go wrong.
