We’re in a post top-fifty world, and it’s about time we take this whole 2020 thing seriously. No more looking back, we’ve got to start looking to the year ahead, and what better way than making promises to ourselves that we’re totally going to keep. It’s board game resolutions time!
Here it is, the episode you’ve all been waiting for, the grand finale, the culmination of five weeks of episodes. These are our top ten favourite board games of all-time, games that we absolutely adore, and would happily play at a moment’s notice. Heck, we’d even play the games on each others’ lists … on, you know, birthdays and special occasions. That’s how good they are.
A new year, a new decade, a new podcast, and a new batch of games that we love talking about. It’s the fourth in our five part series of our 50 favourite board games of all-time, and appropriately, we’re kicking off 2020 by breaking into the top twenty. Synergy.
It’s the season of giving, so our gift to you is more of our favourite board games of all-time! We’re only just halfway, so get comfortable in front of the fire, grab an eggnog, and join us for thirty more incredible games. Oh, you got us something too? Ah. Socks. Thanks.
We’re shifting up a gear, the stakes are higher, it’s all to play for, and a whole host of other cliches, in the second of our five part series on the top fifty games of all time. Thirty(ish) more incredible board games coming at you, and we’re not even halfway done yet.
We made it! The big one-oh-oh. That’s a thing people say, right? We’re starting a five episodes series, working our way down each of our top fifty games of all time. We’ll discuss what might make a game move up or down our list, celebrate the highs that the hobby has to offer, and talk about a heck of a lot of amazing board games. Buckle up!
It’s getting close now, can you feel it? Or are you just feeling sore from the game you just lost? We’re talking sore losers and sore winners: people who are hard to be around when they lose or win a game. What can you do to avoid being that person, and what games bring out the worst in us? Before we fight our feelings, we talk about Paris: New Eden, Glory to Rome, and No Swap No Pay.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We’re showing our thanks with a surprise podcast about … well, maybe we’ll just let the episode speak for itself. Gobble gobble.
We’ve all got them, whether we’ll care to admit it or not, quirks and and biases that might be irrational, but nevertheless affect our judgement of the games we play. This week we’re looking at a few of the little things that might weigh a game in or out of our favour, even if they don’t necessarily make much sense. Before we exercise extreme prejudice, we talk about Flamme Rouge, The North, and Ragusa.
