  • Women and Boardgames Part 3: You Know What Sells

    Depictions of women in boardgames

    Plenty of games have pictures of scantily-clad women. Different people might find these pictures beautiful or gross, empowering or creepy, but one thing's for sure: they've got a lot of cultural baggage. In the third episode of our series on women and boardgames, we unpack some of that baggage and talk about how the way a woman is depicted in a boardgame can affect the experience of playing it.
