Only one week to Gen Con! That means it’s time to run down some of the hottest games everyone’s talking about, plus lots of reviews of our recent plays from Origins.
To kick things off, we chat about the recently announced Spiel des Jahres winners – Azul, Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, and Dragon’s Breath.
Then we read listener answers to our question of the week, which asked, “What criteria do you use when/if culling your board game collection?” – a spot on question for convention season.
Next up, in our acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at the newest Vital Lacerda game, Escape Plan, on Kickstarter right now. Chris then looks at Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy, also on Kickstarter currently.
At the table this week, Anthony reviews Carthago, the newest release from Capstone Games, and Chris looks at both Megaland from Red Raven Games and End of the Trail.
Finally, we dig into the hotness on BGG for the end of July.
