BGB Podcast #227: Board Games: The Sequel: Part II: Electric Boogaloo

It doesn’t happen as much as it does in other industries, but every so often the people at the top demand serialization. We’re talking about sequels in board games, when they work, when they (super) don’t, and what we’d like to see get the treatment. Before we get franchised, we talk about Next Station: London, Dawn of the Zeds (Third Edition), and Azul: Queen’s Garden.
