Episode 15: 2013 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again and the Board Gamers Anonymous crew is back with their top gift picks of the year! Listen as we discuss more than 50 games from across 10 different categories that you or your loved ones will love. Throughout this week’s episode, we’ll go through these categories at rapid fire, sharing the games we feel are the best picks from the last couple years of releases for the person you’ll be buying gifts for in that category. This is the first of three special holiday episodes this season, so be sure to tune in!

The Gift Guide

There are two ways to interact with the gift guide. You can access a writeup for all the games in each category from the links below or you can jump to the bottom and listen to the episode directly:

For each game, we’ll spend a minute running down what makes it a good gift for the gamer in your life, how to find it, and how it compares to the other games in that category. If you are interested in listening to the episode and hearing only one or two of these categories, download from iTunes and you can skip through the enhanced podcast to find a specific segment matching your interests.
