Episode 162 – Board Game Bracket 2018 Final Round

It’s the last weekend of March and that means we’ve reached the end of our 2018 March Gamer Madness! Join Anthony and Chris as we reveal the winner of our month-long competition. Congratulations to Walker for winning our bracket challenge as well!

For our question of the week, we asked the listeners what game suffers the most from a long setup or breakdown time?

For our acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at Monumental and Chris dives into the relaunch and expansion for Dinosaur Island, both on Kickstarter right now. Anthony then reviews Fields of Arle: Tea and Trade, and Marco Polo: Agents of Venice. Chris then dives into Charterstone, which his group recently completed.

Finally, we run through the final 8 games in our board game bracket and crown one of them the winner as the most representative with its components.
