It’s top fifty season! That’s right, it’s the time to reflect on every single game we’ve ever played, and see how we feel about them in the year of our lord, 2022. We sort through the chaff, and from it we weave a beautiful golden strand we call our top fifty greatest games of all time. Grab a glass, and join us.

It’s time. The event of the year is upon us, as we begin counting down our FIFTY. FAVOURITE. GAMES. OF. ALL. TIME. We’re kicking it off where you kick off all good top 50s, with our games ranked 50th to 41st favourite games. And we’ve also invited Mr Delicious himself, Mike DiLisio of The Dice Tower, to pick apart our choices from his lofty perch in the peanut gallery. Let’s go!
Martin Wallace, titan of industry, man of steam and brass. He’s made a lot of games, often involving trains, but sometimes also Cthulhu. We do a deep dive into the prolific designer’s catalogue, in the next in the series that Mark (and nobody else) is calling BGB DOG. Before we put him in our pocket, we talk about Throne and the Grail, Race for the Galaxy, Dinogenics, and On Mars.
Now we’re getting into the thick of it, in fact some are calling it the most ambitious Part II released in any medium. It’s the Board Game Barrage Top 50 Games of All Time! We’re in our thirties (even if we wish we weren’t) and it’s full speed ahead. That’s forty(ish) more games, and ten spots closer to the grand finale. Now that we’ve got this train going, there’s no stopping it.
There’s so much going on in board game land all of the time that it can be hard to know where to focus your attention. So, this week, we each give an example of people, publishers, and sites that we’ve been keeping an eye on, that we think you might want to as well. Before we turn your gaze, we talk about New York Zoo, Targi, Throne and the Grail, and The Red Cathedral.
