Episode 187 – BGG Hotness Review

This week Chris and Anthony are discussing the hottest games currently on BGG to provide some insight on why they’re there and what’s upcoming.

First up, though, we have our question of the week, asking the listeners: “Between Two Cities of Mad King Ludwig was a pleasant surprise. What other games or game franchises would you like to see mashed together?”

Next up, for acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at A Feast for Odin: Norwegians and Chris looks at Pearlbrook, the first expansion for Everdell, currently on Kickstarter.

At the table for our reviews this week, Anthony played both My Little Scythe and Blue Lagoon, and Chris played Reef Encounter and Blokus Duo.

Finally, in our feature, we look at the top 15 games currently on BoardGameGeek’s hotness list.
