BGB Podcast #10 – Everyone is Wrong and We are Right
Double digits, yo. First, a bit of housekeeping; you might have noticed that it is not Wednesday. We’re trying a new schedule that will get the episodes out at a consistent time going forward, rather than, “It’s still Wednesday somewhere, right?” So what that means for you is that wherever you are, Thursday morning will be the time to grab the latest and greatest episode of the Board Game Barrage Podcast. And this one is the greatest, and not just because we’re giving away a copy of Azul! Let’s get into it.
Did you know that sometimes the internet is wrong? Thankfully we’re here to tell you what’s up, and right the wrongs that BoardGameGeek hath wrought. You see, there are some games in their database that are just ranked way too low for how good they are. So, to fix these injustices, we each count down our top five games that BoardGameGeek got wrong, and we got right. Skip the timecodes if you don’t want spoilers!
