On this week’s episode, Anthony is out of town with the family, so Jenn joins Chris for a special conversation. To kick things off, they read answers to the question of the week, “If you were to design a board game, what would it include (theme, mechanics, artwork)?”

For acquisition disorders, this week, Jenn discusses Treasure Island and Chris flicks his way into Star Trek: Conflick in the Neutral Zone. 

At the table, Jenn discusses her recent plays of Hadara, and Chris reviews Lorenzo il Magnifico: Pazzi Conspiracy – the new expansion cards from the recent Kickstarter. 

Finally, in the feature, Jenn and Chris discuss Bras and Board Games, and much of what women face in the hobby. You can read Jenn’s full article on the topic on boardgamersanonymous.com here:
