Episode 19 – Favorite Games of 2013 & Holiday Gift Giving Special!

This has been one of the toughest gift giving seasons we’ve had in several years! Why so hard? Because it wasn’t easy to sit back and wait on giving the gifts we’ve picked for each other. Combined with the great gaming embargo of 2013, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this moment when we can finally share our gifts with each other. Join Anthony, Chris, Dan and Kim as we hand out gifts, discuss our favorite games of 2013 and prepare for another big year in 2014.

At the Table – Favorite Games of 2013

The end of the year is here and like everyone else, we’re eager to share our favorites of the last 12 months. Join the BGA team as we discuss which games lived up to the hype, which games surprised us by coming out of nowhere, and which games we’re STILL eagerly looking for.

By far one of the best years of gaming we’ve ever had, this was a good one with so many games on our top lists that it literally took a full week to whittle it down. Join us for the full discussion of which games deserve to be on that list.

Holiday Gift Giving Spectacular

We’ve been having fun the last few weeks speculating on which games were purchased for the others and enforcing an ongoing embargo (mostly on Dan) to not buy any new board games until this day. Finally it’s here! Join us as we swap gifts and share our favorites with the team. What did each of us take home and which games are we going to be eagerly trying to get to the table for the next few months?

This is the big one – and it’s the final episode of 2013. Happy New Year!
