To kick things off this week, we look at answers to our question of the week: What’s a genre or style of game you’ve never played but still want to try?

For Acquisition Disorders, Anthony looks at Emperor’s Choice, and Chris looks at Fresco Mega Box, now on Kickstarter.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Paladins of the West Kingdom, the newest from Shem Philips and Chris reviews Cowboy Bebop: Boardgame Boogie.

Finally, in our feature this week, Anthony and Chris discuss the meaning of weights in games and some of the most common weight questions and concerns.
