It’s easy to get caught up in the cult of the new, but there are so many amazing games that came out before we were even in the hobby. Mark Bigney of So Very Wrong About Games joins us to look at the games we love from yesteryear, and other older games we really ought to play. Before we go back in time, we talk about Sobek: 2 Players, Phantom Leader Deluxe, and Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition.

Boy, what a year it’s been for accumulating games that we can’t play. The shelf of shame, the collection of games we own that are yet to see a single play, has been steadily growing, and it’s about time we pruned it. We check in on the games most deserving of that first play. Before we take a walk of shame, we talk about Sonora, Troyes Dice, Macao, Quantum, and Rurik: Dawn of Kiev.
We’ve learned a thing or two about game nights and conventions over the years. The hobby has changed, and we’ve had to change with it! This episode, we talk about what’s different with how we approach large meetings of board gamers in 2020, and offer what advice we can. Before we pack our game bags, we talk about Fast Sloths, Birdie Fight, Sorcerer City, Electropolis, and Isle of Cats.
Look, there’s only so much time in the day, so we don’t get to play every game we ought to. But some of those missed games hurt more than others, in fact, some of them are downright shameful. This week we’re counting down the top five games we’re ashamed that we haven’t played. Before we atone, we also talk about Kobayakawa, Taj Mahal, and Twilight Imperium (Fourth Edition).
