BGB Podcast #97 – Eleven Herbs and Biases

Original recipe bickerin’.

We’ve all got them, whether we’ll care to admit it or not, quirks and and biases that might be irrational, but nevertheless affect our judgement of the games we play. This week we’re looking at a few of the little things that might weigh a game in or out of our favour, even if they don’t necessarily make much sense. Before we exercise extreme prejudice, we talk about Flamme Rouge, The North, and Ragusa.

We’re still looking for feedback to close out 2019, if you’d like to answer a quick poll to help guide the next year of the podcast, please click here!
