Episode 180 – How to Win Friends and Influence People with Board Games

Ever want to wine and dine a potential client or get to know your new colleagues over board games? This week, we look at some games that offer the social interaction without potential gaffes or uncomfortable situations that work perfectly for low-key non-drinking ice-breakers.

Before we dive in, we look at our question of the week – asking the listeners “What’s the most ostentatious thing you’ve seen printed for or with a board game (besides CMON’s jumbo Cthulhu)?”

For our acquisition disorders, Anthony puts the spotlight on Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game hitting the states at Gen Con this week, and Chris looks at a blast from the past in Trogdor!! The Board Game.

At the Table this week, we have a few games to talk about, starting with Most Wanted from North Star Games and Senshi from Arcane Wonders, both reviewed by Anthony. Then Chris delves into Red Dragon Inn 7 from Slugfest Games and Mystery of the Templates from Emperor S4 and Deepwater Games.

Finally, we look at six games you should consider when trying to win friends and influence people.
