BGB Podcast #197 – Fantasy Draft: BoardGameGeek 401-500

It’s part five of our venerable draft series, a series so loved that it’s now in syndication! We’re moving on to the tail end of the BGB Top 500, but the format stays the same: draft five games to build a standalone collection that’s better than the others. Vote for your favourite, and you can win $50! Before we collect royalties, we talk about PARKS, Fairy Trails, Abandon All Artichokes, and So Clover!

We drafted with Shut Up & Sit Down at AwSHUX 2021, check it out!
