This week, we kick things off with our question of the week, “What is the best first player token in board games?”

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Maracaibo, the newest from Alexander Pfister and Capstone Games, and Chris looks at Orleans Stories, a new take on the classic Orleans formula.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Watergate, the amazing new two-player political game from Capstone. Chris reviews Barrage with the expansion, a recently delivered (and highly controversial) Kickstarter.

Finally, in our feature, we look at the best games from each of our three favorite designers.
