After that, Anthony gets into his Top Ten Worker Placement games that really bring the strategic thunder, followed up by Jason who provides some lighter fare to round out this group.

Finally, we get into an extended discussion about the Best in Class worker placement game for the Top 200 for every year it’s been on the list -Viticulture. We get into why people love it, what makes it stand out, and whether you should seek it out for your collection
