Episode 136 – BGG Hotness Review

Chris and Anthony are back with another BGG Hotness review, giving you a rundown of the 15 hottest games on BGG right now, why they’re there, and whether we’re equally hyped about them.

To kick this week’s episode off, we announced a brand new contest. If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out our Fix My Game! Contest, sponsored by Geeks 1st. You can win a gift certificate to Geeks 1st for modular game organizers of your choice.

Our question of the week this week asked listeners what game they are tired of hearing other people dump on. Find out what they thought as well as our choices for games that don’t deserve the dumping.

For our acquisition disorders, Anthony dives into Spy Club, now on Kickstarter, while Chris looked at Coaster Park, the newest from Scott Almes.

At the table, Anthony reviews Affliction: Salem 1692 and Chris reviews EVERYTHING else in his party game roundup, see the list below for each game and their timecodes.

Finally, we delve into the 15 games atop the BGG hotness this month. Enjoy!
