BGBBOB’s back, and he’s rollin’ (rollin’) rollin’ on a river of amazing games, all of which feature some incredible dice play. As is our sacred duty, we won’t rest until we’ve arranged them in some sort of numerical order, a ranked list, if you will. Before we rattle the bones, we talk about The Lord of the Rings Adventure Book Game, The South: Terminus, Beyond Baker Street, and The Defence of Procyon III.

Return of the Bob! If you don’t know what a BGBBOB, boy you’ve missed out. Twelve games enter, and, well, they all exit, but only once they’ve been arranged in the appropriate order via a series of one on one fights. And fights are doubly appropriate this week, because we’re battling it out in search of the best combat systems. Before we wish for peace, we talk about 7 Wonders: Architects, Kokopelli, and Canopy.
We had so many fun ideas for this week that we couldn’t settle on just one! It’s always great getting topic suggestions from our listeners, but not all of them can make a full episode, so we figured we’d work through some of them here. Keep sending them in! Before we spice our lives with variety, we talk about Jekyll vs. Hyde, Seikatsu, and Merv: The Heart of the Silk Road.
We’ve been doing it a lot lately, so we thought we’d reflect on the ways that we evaluate our favourite games. How do you even begin to compare extremely dissimilar games, some party, some strategy? The process of making and ordering our lists is a fun challenge every year, and one we’d recommend you try too! Before we make hard choices, we talk about Medici: The Dice Game, The Gallerist, and Iberian Gauge.
So long, 2020, thanks for nothing. Heads set firmly forward, we reflect on what’s been a completely wild year. Despite our complete inability to play a lot of them, board games did happen, so we take a bit of time to talk about the biggest surprises and disappointments. Finally, we cast our mind ahead to...
Look, digital gaming is great and all, but there are some games that either don’t lend themselves well to the format, or aren’t available. Whatever the reason, there are lots of games that we’re itching to play once the world returns to normal. It’s a top five countdown! Before we start scratching, we talk about Exit: The Game – Sunken Treasure, Pandemic: Rapid Response, and Stockpile.
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.
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...
