BGB Podcast #15 – Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Welcome to week two of what I’m affectionately calling, “three weeks of podcasts in which we each talk about our favourite board game mechanics”.

This week it’s Mark’s pick, hand management. Few things are better than seeing a world of possibilities laid out before you, and finding the perfect way to navigate them for maximum positive outcome. Chocolate is one, but there are only a few. Before we reorder the contents of our hand, we talk about Ascending Empires, Funky Chicken, Felicity: The Cat in the Sack, and New Corp Order.
