Episode 172 – BGA’s Big Summer Preview

Convention season has started!

Anthony and Chris kick off the season of many cons with their rundown of the games they are most looking forward to seeing this summer. Is the list complete? Probably not, but we’re excited for every game on it.

Before we kick things off, make sure to enter our World Cup of Sci Fi Games contest, ending on June 9th. You can find more information here.

To start the episode, we ask our question of the week and listeners share how many plays they will give a game before they feel they have made their mind up about it.

For Acquisition Disorders this week, Anthony looks at the final game in Uwe Rosenberg’s puzzle trilogy, Spring Meadow, and Chris looks at the new Vast game, The Mysterious Manor.

At the table, we’re reviewing Dragon Castle, the new tile placement game from CMON and Argent: The Consortium, the second edition of which just shipped from Level 99 Games.

Finally, we have our big run down of 16 games we’re excited to see this summer at the cons we’ll be attending.
