BGB Podcast #125 – REwrite the Stars

All of this has happened before, and all of this will happen again.

Once loved board games will often circle back into the limelight with reprints, but we’re also starting to see a lot more get remasters and remakes too. We take a look at this trend, and discuss some re-imaginings our favourite board games, whether it’s a full on new version, or just a new coat of paint. Before we re-re-re-repeat, we talk about Cities: Skylines, Colorful, and Maharaja.
