Episode 171 – BGG Hotness Review

It’s the end of May, and that means time to look back at the hotness for this month and why some games have jumped into the limelight (and others remain).

First up this week, we’re talking about our World Cup contest for Sci Fi games, coming up in 2 weeks. You can enter the contest here for a chance to win a free sci fi board game.

2018 World Cup of Science Fiction Board Games Contest

Our question of the week this week asked everyone what games they have replaced components for and why (in honor of the horrible little coins in Nusfjord).

For our acquisition disorders, Anthony looked at the new Vital Lacerda game, On Wars, and Chris looked at the recently SdJ nominated Luxor: Forgotten Treasures.

At the Table, Anthony reviews Kashgar and Chris looks at 7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon.

Finally, we delve into the 15 games at the top of the BGG Hotness during the week of 5/25.
