Episode 281 – Three Steps to Play Board Games Remotely

This week we’re taking a deep dive into remote gaming. How do you play with real components against your friends from afar in this age of social distancing? Let’s take a closer look at three steps to get you there.

But first, we discuss our question of the week: What’s a game that gets better with one minor change?

In acquisition disorders this week Anthony looks at the new expansions for Tokyo Metro and Tokyo Tsukiji from Draper Games, while Chris digs into Catapult Kingdoms – both games on Kickstarter now.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews The Liberation of Rietburg, a new Legends of Andor coop spinoff and Chris revisits Aquasphere, a classic Stefan Feld game that made it back to the table recently.

Finally, in the feature, Anthony and Chris share their three steps for choosing, setting up and playing a game remotely over Skype, Facetime or Zoom on your personal devices.
