We’re reflecting on the past this episode, looking back at the things we said – never wise, by the way. The games of 2019 had a lot of promise, but how young and dumb they seem to our aged eyes. Where are they now? Join us as we cast our minds back to last decade, to reflect on the games we were excited for so many months ago.

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!
No, not that game. We’re talking about the life cycles of games, how we acquire them, how we end up moving on from them. Where do we generally get our games from, and how do we typically get rid of them? Things get a little bit existential before the end. Before we, blinking, step into the sun, we also talk about Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne, 18Lilliput, and Tonari.
Kellen’s back, which some might say is too many hosts – apt, because we’re an episode of extremes today. We’re talking about games that are too simple, too complex, too short, or too long, that might otherwise have been among our favourites.

We just flew in from Indianapolis, and boy are our arms tired! From carrying all these games. But, more than the games, it’s the people you meet that make the memories, so we’re recovering from a very long weekend at Gen Con by telling some of our favourite little stories from the floor. Before we revisit our weekend, we talk about Tuki, God of War: The Card Game, and Wits & Wagers Vegas.
Day two is over, but we’re just getting started, because it’s all about those Gen Con nights. We’re up way too late, yet again, to give you the scoops from the floor. We talk about Finger Guns at High Noon, Realm of Sand, and Medium.
Gen Con 2019 is mere weeks away, and I bet you don’t even know what games are going to be there. Fear not, we’ve got you covered! We’re counting down our most anticipated games of the show, having meticulously studied BGG’s preview list, and looked at all the pretty pictures. Before we plan our trip, we talk about Cryptid, Two Rooms and a Boom, and Planet.
Don’t look back. You’re not going that way. 2019 is well underway, but with so many amazing games on the horizon, it’s hard to know what to look out for. Fear not, listener, that’s what we’re here for. Join us as we count down our most anticipated games of the year. Before we cast...
