Episode 183 – Top Ten Children’s Games

This time of year is full of gaming with the kids. School hasn’t quite started but the summer has slowed down, plus lots of new games from cons to get to the table. So this week we’re looking at the top ten children’s games we get to our tables.

First up, though, we ask the listeners what gamer they love to play, but the more they play it, the worse they do.

For our acquisition disorders, we have some new upcoming releases for later this year. Anthony is talking about the new Pax game from Matt Eklund, Pax Transhumanity, and Chris is talking about the newest take on the Dune license from Gale Force Nine and Discover Lands Unknown – the second “Unique” game from Fantasy Flight coming at the end of this year.

At the table this week, Anthony has a collection of children’s games he’s been playing lately with his kid, featuring Dragon’s Breath, Shaky Manor, Ice Cool 2 and Woodlands.

Finally, in our feature, Anthony and Chris look at the top 10 children’s games.
