Episode 157 – If You or Your Friends Like Video Games, Try…

This week, we’re looking at games you might like if you like video games (or more likely, if your stubborn video gaming friends are hesitant to try board games!)

First up, we ask our question of the week, “what one piece of advice would you give to someone brand new to gaming?”

For our acquisition disorders this week Anthony is looking at Xia: Embers of a Forsaken Star (and trolling himself in the process), while Chris looks at FINCA – a board game with…fruit!

For our at the table segments this week, Anthony reviews Indian Summer from Uwe Rosenberg, yet more tile laying goodness, and Chris looks at his own polyomino game, Santa Maria.

Finally, we delve into some games you might like if you like video games.
