We weren’t going to let Kellen have the last word on what makes the perfect $100 collection, so the 139 squad is here to finish it out. Forgot the premise? You’ve lost all your board games, and only have $100 to rebuild it; what do you buy first? Before we make every penny count, we talk about Cosmic Encounter Duel, Hundreds of Horses, Billionaire Banshee, and Floor Plan.
We asked for your questions, and you provided! Some of you used Instagram, some of you used voicemail, but however you reached out, your voice was heard. We chose only a few to answer (quality notwithstanding), but we’d love to keep doing this, so keep sending them in! Before we corral your correspondence, we talk about Gloomhaven, Terra Mystica, Bloom Town, and Starlink.
Sometimes you have a little gap of time between larger, heavier games, and what you need is a palate cleanser, which brings us to the realm of games we lovingly call “fillers”. We kick off the very first Ranked Duel Battle of the Boards (definitely not the final title) by ranking our favourite filler games! Before we pass the time, we talk about Aerion, Ingenious, The One Hundred Torii, and Taluva.
We all need something to look forward to, so this episode we’re eagerly anticipating all the good things in the world of board gaming that are yet to come in 2020. Some of it might be a ways off, but where’s the harm in getting the hype train rolling early? Before we cast our eyes ahead, we talk about Splendor, Qwirkle, Bronze Age, and Guards of Atlantis II.
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.
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.
Where has the year gone?! It’s almost time to start packing our bags for various family gatherings, and inevitably the most important question becomes … what games are we taking? Whether it’s specific games for specific people, or games that work in large inexperienced groups, we’re here to make your holidays merry and bright. Before we head on home, we talk about Ethnos, Street Masters, Templari, and Carnival of Monsters.
End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Steps ten to one are just another path, one that we all must take. Top ten, baby! We finally made it. And thus concludes our five part series of our favourite games of all-time. Frankly, we were changed by the experience, and will never be the same...
Believe in steps thirty to twenty-one, and you’re halfway there. Okay, we’re past the middle. It’s all downhill from here, but the good sort of downhill. We’re counting down our fifty favourite board games, in part three of what the world is calling our most ambitious endeavour yet! Well, we’re calling it that. If...
Now this is the story all about how our lives got flipped, turned upside down. How do you meet other board game enthusiasts? Just loving and owning board games isn’t enough if you don’t have anyone to play them with! It’s not always easy to turn your friends into board gamers, so what are...
