BGB Podcast #70 – Spiel des Jahres! The Games War!
(A Sandy Petersen Game.)
Somewhere in Germany every year, a specialist team assembles to decide on the best board games … that released in Germany that year … that no one has ever heard of. Look, the Spiel des Jahres is a bit weird, and no one ever agrees about the winners, but we’re going to talk about the nominees anyway, okay? Before ze Germans get here, we also talk about Glorantha: The Gods War, and Corinth. We also recap our weekend at Strategicon Gamex 2019.
