#110: One Small Thing ... now with sound!

Apologies for those who previously downloaded this file and didn't hear any audio. As some already guessed, Mark found a "great" trade involving our audio equipment for a rare copy of Biblios, but we thankfully were able to get it called off. Sometimes a game is hitting all the right notes, and you want to recommend it wholeheartedly ... but there's just one tiny blemish you can't overlook. It's not enough to make a great game bad, but, man, just imagine if it someone had fixed that. This week we're looking at games that almost nail it. Before we smooth the last crease, we talk about Chaosmos, Subtext, On a Scale of One to T-Rex, and Empyreal: Spells & Steam. 01:26 - Krass Kariert 03:22 - Chaosmos 11:40 - On a Scale of One to T-Rex 16:52 - Subtext 20:58 - Empyreal: Spells & Steam 29:46 - Games with One Small Issue 31:44 - Kemet 36:06 - Root 37:28 - Cthulhu Wars 39:39 - Gloomhaven 42:14 - Decrypto 43:35 - Azul 44:53 - Point Salad 45:32 - Concordia Join the discussion at: https://boar...

#109: Harshing My Buzz

We're gluttons for punishment this week, because we're talking about harshness in board games. These are the sort of games where big moves or bad mistakes can be hard to recover from. Harsh games aren't for everyone, so when and why do we find them appealing? Before we grit our teeth, we talk about Wavelength, Genoa, Krass Kariert, and Oceans. 01:02 - Wavelength 05:39 - Genoa 07:30 - Krass Kariert 14:55 - Oceans 23:48 - Harshness in Games 24:24 - Biblios 24:48 - Arboretum 25:52 - Seasons 27:36 - The Estates 28:54 - Troyes 30:02 - Agricola 31:32 - A Feast For Odin 33:23 - Tigris and Euphrates 33:43 - Yellow and Yangtze 36:10 - Diplomacy 39:53 - Medici Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord

#108: We Have to Go Back

We're reflecting on the past this episode, looking back at the things we said - never wise, by the way. The games of 2019 had a lot of promise, but how young and dumb they seem to our aged eyes. Where are they now? Join us as we cast our minds back to last decade, to reflect on the games we were excited for so many months ago. 02:11 - XCOM: The Board Game 06:41 - Living Planet 13:55 - The Voyages of Marco Polo 14:47 - Heaven & Ale 18:06 - Mystic Market 19:49 - Essen 2019 Look Back 21:11 - The Magnificent 21:52 - Trismegistus: The Ultimate Formula 23:47 - Welkin 24:08 - Rush M.D. 24:22 - Terramara 24:36 - Deep Blue 25:08 - Rome & Roll 25:21 - Paranormal Detectives 25:59 - Offshore 26:13 - Maracaibo 27:19 - Glen More II: Chronicles 27:40 - Kakerlaken Sushi 27:52 - Perserverance: Castaway Chronicles 29:24 - Crystal Palace 29:38 - Babylonia 30:08 - Gen Con 2019 Look Back 30:28 - Conflicting Legends 31:12 - Watergate 31:28 - Welcome to Dino World 32:47 - Tonari 34:21 - Time Chase 34:47 -...

#107: Get It Right the First Time

You only get one chance to play a game for the first time, but sometimes events conspire to make that debut ... less than ideal. We look at some first plays that could've gone better, examine what contributed to them not delivering, and offer advice on how to make sure your brand new game doesn't stumble out the gate. 02:34 - Rumble Nation 10:16 - Neuroshima Hex 12:07 - Macao 14:05 - In the Year of the Dragon 21:24 - It's a Wonderful World 23:46 - Carnival of Monsters 25:51 - 7 Wonders 26:12 - Terraforming Mars 30:28 - Better First Plays 31:00 - Brass: Birmingham 35:18 - Dominion 37:01 - Race for the Galaxy 38:21 - Empyreal: Spells & Steam 42:53 - Endeavor 46:31 - Dixit 49:12 - Awkward Guests Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord

#106: Popcorn Time with Mike DiLisio

Mike DiLisio (of The Dice Tower, and Sporadically Board) makes his BGB podcast debut as the Fandango Tank! Mike's trying to sell us on popcorn games. These are games that may or may not be ... critically sound, but nevertheless provide fun experiences that we find ourselves returning to. But why wouldn't we just play something more substantive instead? We investigate. 00:16 - Mike DiLisio, the Fandango Tank! 07:10 - Fresh Fish 14:23 - Sanctum 23:59 - In the Hall of the Mountain King 31:44 - Popcorn Games 35:42 - Heroes of Land, Air & Sea 37:15 - Dragoon 40:24 - Cthulhu Wars 47:40 - Zombicide: Black Plague 51:39 - Meeple Circus 52:45 - The Quacks of Quedlinburg 53:16 - XCOM: The Board Game 53:56 - Magical Athlete 54:19 - Nanty Narking 55:02 - Wiz-War 56:55 - Mission: Red Planet 57:16 - Arcadia Quest Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord

#105: Resolutions and Revelations

We're in a post top-fifty world, and it's about time we take this whole 2020 thing seriously.

Here it is, the episode you've all been waiting for, the grand finale, the culmination of five weeks of episodes. These are our top ten favourite board games of all-time, games that we absolutely adore, and would happily play at a moment's notice.
