BGB Podcast #299 – Top 50 Games of All-Time 2023: 10-1

We made it! We’ve arrived at last at the final ten games, in fact, our TOP TEN favourite games of all time. Thanks for joining us again on this yearly pilgrimage, as always it’s the journey that’s the important thing – but that’s not to say that there isn’t some exciting moving and shaking to happen at the destination. That said, it’s time to pass out on the couch.

BGB Podcast #259: Top 50 Games of All-Time 2022: 20-11

We’ve reached the penultimate part of our five part series, the great series that is sometimes called our top fifty greatest games of all time! We’re barreling close to the end now, but not without a lot of moving and shaking first. Here’s another fine selection of thirty amazing games we love.

The penultimate episode of the grand series is here, it’s the BGB Top 50!

BGB Podcast #159 – Picking Favorites

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.

BGB Podcast #157 – Top 50 Games of All-Time 2020: 20-11

We’re moving into the terrible teens of the Board Game Barrage Top 50 Games of All Time. I learned all I know about American teenagers from TV, so I assume this is where all the sex and drugs come in. Let’s get to it then, forty (roughly) more games that we simply adore. As the list goes on, they only get better and better. That is, after all, the premise.

BGB Podcast #148 – Your Comfort Zone

Put on your thick socks, wrap yourself in a blanket, and get comfortable with us in front of the fire. We’re using our patent pending formula (aka BGBBOB) to find the best heart warming comfort games. Twelve board games enter, and … twelve leave, but arranged in the scientifically correct order. Before we get comfortable, we talk about The Castles of Tuscany, Cooper Island, and SCOUT!

BGB Podcast #139 – Bugbear Brawl

It’s an unprecedented trio of hosts, but we’re no less heated about our biggest board game bugbears. In fact, we’re so upset about these little annoyances, that we couldn’t help but order them in a list for your amusement … BGBBOB style. Before we get bugged by bears, we talk about Calico, Telestrations: Upside Drawn, and Pendulum.

BGB Podcast #129 – Fight for Your Right to Party

BGBBOB, party edition! For those not keeping up, that’s BGB Best of Board Games, which is definitely not the final name (but also maybe is) for our recurring feature where we duel rank games into an incontestable ordered list. This week we confer, fight, and bargain our way to the best fifteen party games. Before we spike the punch, we also talk about Twice As Clever, Wavelength, and 6 nimmt!

BGB Podcast #103 – Top 50 Games of All-Time 2019: 20-11

A new year, a new decade, a new podcast, and a new batch of games that we love talking about. It’s the fourth in our five part series of our 50 favourite board games of all-time, and appropriately, we’re kicking off 2020 by breaking into the top twenty. Synergy.
