Episode 206 – BGG Hotness Review

It’s that time of the month again – time to dig in and check out the hotness for January. But first off, we’re psyched to announce that we’ve hit our goal on Patreon to launch our weekly contests! Back us at patreon.com/bga to join the party!

First up, we ask everyone the question of the week: With so many reprints and reimplementations lately, what do you still have on your grail game list?

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony digs into a line of Imperial Settlers and Detective content coming from Portal Games and Chris looks at the new expansion for Food Chain Magnate recently added to the Splotter website.

At the table, Anthony reviews Blackout: Hong Kong and Chris finally gets a chance to bring Newton to the table.

Finally, in our feature, we dig through the top 15 games on BGG and share why they are on the hotness this month.
