ENGN 168 – Best in Class and Top Ten – Strategic Card Games

Welcome to part two of our mini-series of episodes. Following up on the Top 200 Solo Games People’s Choice list that is now live on BGG, we are taking a closer look at different genres represented within that list, and also enjoyed by gamers everywhere.

Anthony and Jason shift over to talk about one of their personal favorites – strategic card games. First, we get into some of the reason why folks love the genre so much. After that, Anthony gets into his Top Ten Strategic Card Games. If you are a regular listener, you know what landed at number one!

Finally, we get into an extended discussion about the Best in Class worker placement game for the Top 200, a new debut this year – Wingspan. We get into why people love it, why others have some difficulty with it, and how it compares to some of our other favorites.
