BGB Podcast #163 – Our Listeners’ Top 20 Board Games of All-Time 2021

Bless ’em.

Wow! We asked for your top twenty lists, and boy did you deliver. We’ve crunched the numbers on the hundreds of submissions, and created what we think is the definitive list of BGB listeners’ favourite board games. Now let us tell you how we think you did. Before we outsource our work, we talk about Santa Monica, Steam Works, and Cthulhu: Death May Die.
