BGB Podcast #308 – Fantasy Draft: Games To Last a Decade

It’s back, and it’s spicier, more harrowing, and more lucrative than ever before! It’s the Fantasy Draft, and this time we’re changing things up by asking you not to vote for favourite games, but for the set that you think will still be relevant ten years from now (AKA the far flung future). Vote to stand a chance to win a gift card for one hundred dollars! Before we say things we’ll regret in a decade, we also talk about London (Second Edition), and Spectral.

BGB Podcast #235: The Twin Game Showdown

There’s a phenomenon called twin films, where competing studios release very similar movies at the same time. We imagine the same idea in board game land, and highlight some of the biggest board game grudge matches – and judge which game we think came out on top. Before there can be only one, we talk about Viking See-Saw, Dandelions, Codex Naturalis, and Luna.

BGB Podcast #232: Transcontinental Mailbag Express

We’re spread across the world and time, so we do the thing we should never do; we put the questions to you. Yes, you! It’s a mailbag episode, we’re answering a trio, a trilogy, a trichopteran of your questions. Before we put in our hand and pull out a letter, we talk about Caesar!: Seize Rome in 20 Minutes!, Symphony No.9, and Arrakis: Dawn of the Fremen.

BGB Podcast #224: Golden Geek Awards 2021

The Golden Geek results are in for 2021, and to avoid burying the lede … we won! We’re over the moon, naturally, but we couldn’t have done it without you. We celebrate by giving our takes on the rest of the awards, how we voted, and what we think about the other categories. Before we bathe in our glory, we talk about Aristocracy, Senators, and Ark Nova.

BGB Podcast #186 – Don’t Knock It Till You Try It

We all have types of games that, for whatever reason, we steer clear of. Often all that we’ve been missing is a more suitable introduction to the genre, or a game that’s just enough of an outlier. This week, we try to tempt you toward genres that you might have written off, with the games that may just sway you. Before we change your minds, we talk about Pocket Galapagos, Cascadia, and Bites.
