Episode 178 – Best Board Game Universes

In the grand tradition of the (relatively new) cinematic universe, this week we’re looking at our favorite board game universes. Join Chris and Anthony as they delve into several different universes that have expanded with shared rules, components, and characters.

We start by asking the listeners about some of their favorites, then dive into Acquisition Disorders. Anthony talks about Rurik: Dawn of Kiev, currently on Kickstarter, and Chris looks at the newest from Next Move Games (Plan B): Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews the Kennerspiel nominated Ganz Schon Clever (which you can play online here), and Kingdomino: Age of Giants, the first expansion for the popular Blue Orange game. Chris looks at Sorcerer & Stones, from Emperor S4, distributed by Deep Water Games.

Finally, we delve into the best of the board game universes.
