Episode 49 – Top Ten Party Games for Gamers

This week the BGA team with Chris and Danuel sit down to discuss the Top Ten Party Games for Gamers and Walled City along with some other recent favorites and a few triggers to our acquisition disorder:

Shout it from the Tabletop

Drew is away for the holidays so Chris borrows the soapbox and shares his open letter to game publishers about game box size. Make sure to leave a comment if you agree (or don’t) and what you think would be a good change within the industry so we can make room for more games.

Acquisition Disorder Corner

Chris and Daniel talk about some of the games they want to see on their shelves after this holiday season. Listen to their recent want lists and see if you need to expand your own before the holiday season is over.

Feature At the Table: The Walled City

This week the guys take a close look at The Walled City from Daryl Andrews and Steve Sauer from Mercury Games. Learn what Chris and Daniel think of this unique new hand management, city building game.

Top Ten Party Games for Gamers

It’s the holiday season and that means family is in town. While it would be amazing if Grandma threw down for a classic euro, you’ll probably have better luck bringing the family to the table for one of our Top Ten party games. Listen to what Chris and Daniel think are the best party games on the market today to get a group of gamers and non-gamers alike together.

Final Round – Party Pooper Games

On the flip side, learn what games are the fastest to RUIN a party in our final round. Daniel and Chris both pick two games to represent what they feel is the weakest entry at the end of a long night of gaming fun.
