Episode 143 – Upgrading from Casual to Gamer…

This week on BGA, Chris and Anthony look at games you can introduce to your non-gamer friends if they’ve started to dip their toe in the water with games like Exploding Kittens.

Before diving into our feature, we look at our question of the week. Listeners answered what they do with their old board games they no longer want or need in their collection.

Next up, with our acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at the new legacy game from Inka and Marcus Brand, Queensdale, coming next year from Alea and Ravensburger. Chris delves into Pocket Mars.

At the Table, Anthony reviews the newest game from Stefan Feld and Queen Games, Merlin, and Chris looks at the most recent expansion for Evolution, Climate.

Finally, in our feature, we look at games you should consider if trying to coax your non-gamer friends into the hobby from entry level games like Exploding Kittens.
