The Legacy Music Hour: Board Games

Board Games is the topic of Episode 107; that is, video games based on actual board games like Clue or Monopoly, or video game board games like Itadaki Street and Bakushou Jinsei Gekijou.  This ends up being a great topic, because it makes Brent and Rob delve into a whole new, unexplored faction of video game titles and video game music, especially some very obscure Japanese stuff, and in turn, they find some really cool tracks.  NOTE: Brent says the word “basically” a record amount of times in this episode, so watch out.  Full track listing below.
