Episode 217 – BGG Hotness April 2019

Thank you to all of our new Patreon backers this week! Windbag Miles, Michael, Anthony, and Jordan all join us at the Producer level.

And congratulations to this week’s Patreon contest winner, Jeremy C, who will be getting a copy of Root, courtesy of Game Surplus.

To kick off this week’s episode, we asked listeners our question of the week: What’s a long out of print game (board or card) that you’d like to see make a comeback with updated, modern mechanics?

Next up in acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at Aerion, the new solo game from Shadi Torbey, and Chris looks at 18Chesapeake, a new entry-level 18XX game now on Kickstarter.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Bumuntu, abstract-like tile game from Wizkids, and Chris reviews Clank!: The Mummy’s Curse with Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated – Upper Management Pack. Lots of Clank!

Finally, in our feature, we look at the top 15 games currently on the BGG hotness, why there are there, what has some people very upset this week, and much more.
