Lautapelinurkka – 1960: Making of the President

LATAA JAKSO – TÄSTÄ- Tässä jaksossa arvostelen 1960: Making of the Presidentin. Voit kysellä ja katsella pelin saatavuutta joko Lautapelit.fi:stä tai Milan-Spielestä.

Ja erityiset kiitokset jälleen Mikko Putkoselle ja Eminorille musiikista, joka […]
