This week’s episode kicks off with our question of the week, If someone visits your hometown or the area around it, what’s one board game destination they should visit? Listen for a bunch of awesome recommendations for the FLGS’s our listeners hang out at.
For our Acquisition Disorders this week, Anthony looks at Watergate, a new one from Frosted Games and Capstone Games, and Chris looks at New Leaders & Wonders, an expansion for Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization from CGE. Both are coming out later this year.
At the table this week, Anthony does a Roll and Write roundup, giving a dodge, two plays and a buy to four recently released roll and writes, including Lanterns Dice: Lights in the Sky, Imperial Settlers Roll and Write, Doppelt So Clever, and Welcome to Dino World. Chris then dives into Wacky Races: The Board Game, a blast from the past, but is it worth revisiting?
Finally, in our feature, Anthony does a rundown of the top 15 games on BGG as of June 23, 2019. Check out the full list and why each game is getting hype right now in the full episode.
