It’s the penultimate draft of the BGG Top 1000 series, and all of these games are garbage … but it’s up to us to sift through that garbage, and each find a collection of five games that’s worthy of you. Vote for your favourite, and you could win a $50 gift voucher! Before we find diamonds in the rough, we also talk about Paperback Adventures, and Woodcraft.

Board games are a social medium, which is a big part of their appeal for us. It’s not just about being heads down solving a puzzle, they facilitate conversation. Some games are better at this than others, so we put BGBBOB on the case to find our favourites! Before we natter away, we talk about Big Top, Autobahn, and Pollen.
It’d be great if we could only ever play our favourites. But sometimes, perhaps more often than not, we have to put up with playing games not because we want to, but because it’s the polite or kind thing to do depending on the company. This week, we’re talking about games that we don’t necessarily love, but for whatever reason we end up playing a lot of. Before we’re held against our will, we talk about Mr. Cabbagehead’s Garden, Sacred Rites, and Great Plains.
