Episode 275 – BGG Hotness June 2020

This week we’re looking at the peculiar clump of recent Kickstarters, award nominees, and good old favorites that are on the BGG Hotness at the end of May moving into June.

But first, we discuss some recent news, including the cancelation of Gen Con, the slew of upcoming online conventions that have been announced, and our Question of the Week, asking: What Games are Good for Backyard Play?

In acquisition disorders this week Anthony looks at Board Game Genre Enamel Pins on Kickstarter – a project from a local Pittsburgh designer – and Nemesis: Lockdown, both on Kickstarter now. Chris digs into Kemet: Blood and Sand, also just launched on Kickstarter.

At the table, Anthony discusses the beta release of Teotihuacan on Board Game Arena and the recent release of Tabletopia which he got to the table with his family. Chris then dives into Tang Garden, a recently shipped Kickstarter that finally got into everyone’s hands.

Finally, in the feature, Anthony does a quick rundown of the BGG Hotness as of May 26, 2020, prepping us to go into the June gauntlet of new releases and online convention prep.
