BGB Podcast #146 – Essen SPIEL 2020 Hype List

I’m sure Essen is lovely this time of year.

Essen SPIEL is the latest of the conventions in 2020 to go digital, which is convenient for us, because we weren’t about to fly to Germany any time soon. We perused the upcoming games that were showcased as part of the event, and picked the ones we’re most excited about. It’s a top 5! Before we virtually convene, we talk about Babylonia, Veiled Fate, and Dune: Imperium.
