Episode 282 – BGG Hotness July 2020

This week we’re revisiting the hot games preview for this summer and discussing 15 of the hottest games added to the list since last month. Preorders, Gen Con releases keeping to their dates and much more.

But first, we discuss our question of the week: What’s the most replayable game in your collection?

In acquisition disorders this week Anthony looks at Daimyo: Rebirth of the Empire, which just went up on Kickstarter, and Chris looks at Massive Darkness 2 – can it fix what didn’t quite work in the first one?

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Nova Luna – the Spiel des Jahre nominee from Uwe Rosenberg and Stronghold Games that he recently had a chance to play several times.

Finally, in the feature, Anthony and Chris dig through the BGG preview list for summer to find games recently added, shipping soon, or just released.
