Episode 210 – BGG Hotness, February 2019

Hey everyone, we’re back with another look at the BGG Hotness, this time for February 2019.

First up, we name the winner of this week’s Patreon contest – congratulations Adrienne! If you haven’t yet and want to be part of our weekly giveaways, signup at https://patreon.com/bga.

For our question of the week, we asked the listeners, “What game in your collection is the biggest headache to teach to new players?”

In acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Terramara, a new game from Quined featuring the designers of Coimbra and part of Lorenzo il Magnifico. Chris looks at Tiny Epic Tactics.

At the Table this week, Anthony reviews A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians and Caverna: Forgotten Folk, while Chris looks at a boatload of games he played at Dreamation in New Jersey last week, including: Strasbourg, Scoville, Paper Tales, Patchistory, Panamax, and Auztralia.

Finally, for our feature, we look at the 15 games currently atop the BGG Hotness and why they are there.
