It’s part three, which everyone knows is the dark middle chapter of every pentalogy, so expect some swoops, some turns, some revelations. Brace yourself for another thirty incredible games that we can’t wait to tell you all about.

It doesn’t happen as much as it does in other industries, but every so often the people at the top demand serialization. We’re talking about sequels in board games, when they work, when they (super) don’t, and what we’d like to see get the treatment. Before we get franchised, we talk about Next Station: London, Dawn of the Zeds (Third Edition), and Azul: Queen’s Garden.
We’re back for the second part of the year’s greatest celebration, it’s the top fifty! We’ve got thirty more incredible games to talk about this week, as we get into our games ranked 40th to 31st. This week in the peanut gallery, critiquing our picks, we’re thrilled to have Monique (the Lavender tank herself) and Naveen of Before You Play!
We love Uwe Rosenberg around these parts, whether it’s because of our infatuation with polyominoes, the need to keep workers fed, or the strange mechanisms of animal breeding. Join us down the (cottage) garden path of his designography, and make sure to plant some vegetables along the way. Before we get agricultural, we talk about Bosk, Spies & Lies: A Stratego Story, and Glen More II: Chronicles.
We’re back with another fantasy draft, as we keep on moving down the BoardGameGeek top games list. If you’re not familiar, we’re each picking a standalone collection of five games before our picks get stolen out from under us. Want to win a $50 gift card? You’ve got to vote on whose collection is best! Before we get the knives out, we talk about Raiders of Scythia, and Ankh: Gods of Egypt.
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.
Hello again, Germany! Well, we don’t actually ever go to Essen, but boy do we wish we could. There are always so many games that debut at Essen SPIEL that we wish we could play or buy … and this year is no exception! We’re counting down the games we would most anticipate getting our hands on if it weren’t so goshdarn far. Before we cast our minds across the Atlantic, we also talk about Irish Gauge, Heroes of Terrinoth, and Tapestry.
