Episode 148 – Best Games of 2017

Another year, another batch of amazing board games. Chris and Anthony pored over a huge list of 2017 releases (hundreds, you guys!) and chose 25 games they liked above all the rest as the top releases of the last year – some big names and a handful of hidden gems.

At the top of the list, each of us chose two games to be our best of the best for the year, with a couple of no brainers and some surprises. Check out the full list and our thoughts on each of these amazing games and why 2017 was a pretty good year for board games.
