I hope you all had a good holiday break, but it’s time to get back to business. The very serious business that is the top fifty greatest games of all time. We return to our heroes in what the enthusiasts call phase two, and boy are things heating up! Thirty more incredible games that we absolutely love are coming right at you.
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!
It’s here at last, the big event! Yes, it’s the first episode of the yearly ritual we inventively call the Board Game Barrage Top 50 Games of All Time. And this year, for the first time, the Blue Tank, Christina is weighing in too. That’s forty incredible games to kick us off! Join us in the weeks ahead as we sing the praises of our absolute favourite board games, because we’re just getting started.
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!
We made it! The big one-oh-oh. That’s a thing people say, right? We’re starting a five episodes series, working our way down each of our top fifty games of all time. We’ll discuss what might make a game move up or down our list, celebrate the highs that the hobby has to offer, and talk about a heck of a lot of amazing board games. Buckle up!
