This week, we kick things off with our question of the week, “What are the best games you’ve played this year that are old but new to you?”

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Azul Summer Pavilion, the newest iteration on the SdJ winning game from Plan B Games, and Chris looks at Mint Cooperative – The Minty Fresh Cooperative Game, a new entry in the Mint games series.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Ishtar, the newest from Bruno Cathala and Iello. Chris reviews Gugong, the gift swapping medium euro from Game Brewers.

Finally, in our feature, we look at ten games we love but will never play again.
