ENGN Episode 60 – Beyond the Hotness and Ethics in Game Reviews w/ Antlab Games

Anthony and Frances from Ant Lab Games return for more solo gaming discussion! This time, we chat about ‘games beyond the hotness’ – that is, games that are some of our favorites from the last few years, but which have flown under the radar for various reasons.
Afterwards, we chat about the ethics of board game reviewers getting free stuff from publishers. Does it affect our objectivity? What responsibilities do we have to publishers, as well as to the audience?

  • Anthony

    Anthony lives and plays games in Pittsburgh, PA. A lover of complex strategy, two player war games, and area control, Anthony is always eager to try a new game, even if he's on rule-reading duty.
