    #195: Eric, Eric, He's Our Lang

    1:00:48

    We're always excited for a new Eric Lang game, which makes him an obvious candidate for the absolutely-not-called BGB DOG - our series where we deep dive into a designer's .... designography. He's made a lot of our favourite area control games, and had his hand in some games we might not have even realized. Before we bang on about this Lang mang, we talk about What's Missing?, Polynesia, and TEN. 02:41 - What's Missing? 07:50 - Polynesia 17:47 - Ten 25:10 - PAX Unplugged 25:45 - Ghost Turkey 2021 28:45 - Eric Lang 31:30 - Mystick 32:05 - Dragon Ball Z: Majin Buu Saga 33:04 - Midgard 34:54 - Chaos in the Old World 39:58 - Quarriors! 41:48 - Dice Masters 42:20 - Blood Rage 45:47 - XCOM: The Board Game 48:13 - Duelyst 49:40 - Rising Sun 50:39 - Cthulhu: Death May Die 52:19 - Ankh: Gods of Egypt 54:32 - Marvel United Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #193: Three Dimensions of Space

    57:17

    There is one unenviable truth of board game ownership that we're forced to contend with - they occupy space. We've each had to wrestle with this reality in different ways recently, so we offer our thoughts on the awkwardness of sharing a physical world with our board games. Before we merely exist, we talk about Riftforce, Kabuto Sumo, and Whirling Witchcraft. 02:23 - Riftforce 11:38 - Kabuto Sumo 19:41 - Whirling Witchcraft 23:25 - Bullet♥︎ 23:45 - Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne 29:37 - So Very Wrong About Games charity fundraiser 30:05 - Ghost Turkey 2021 31:49 - Board games occupying space 45:28 - Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 48:06 - Inis 48:47 - Scythe 49:06 - Splendor Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #192: Fantasy Draft: BoardGameGeek 301-400

    55:45

    A new list of a hundred games to draft, and it only gets harder and harder. We're each picking a standalone collection of five games in a snake draft format. And the best part is you could win $50 just by voting on your favourite collection! Before we get to clubbing, we talk about Regicide, Dice Miner, and Let's Make a Bus Route, and SCOUT! 02:06 - Regicide 08:34 - Dice Miner 16:55 - Let's Make a Bus Route 16:55 - Get on Board: New York & London 18:56 - SCOUT! 22:42 - Drafting BGG's #301-400 25:18 - Biblios 26:56 - Innovation 28:18 - Monikers 29:20 - The Great Zimbabwe 30:42 - Ginkgopolis 33:34 - For Sale 35:24 - Nusfjord 37:45 - Bunny Kingdom 39:18 - Chinatown 39:38 - Twice as Clever! 41:17 - Macao 43:03 - Lancaster 45:05 - Obsession 48:23 - Lost Cities 50:36 - Gùgōng See Badgers from Mars' statement on TGG Games: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2723017/badgers-mars-and-tgg-games Check out Mark playing Dice Miner on GameNight! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CouxIvYzh-s Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #191: Take Off Every Zig

    48:32

    While one of the appeals of following a specific game designer is the comforting familiarity of what they do best, it’s also really fun to see them go off the garden path. We’re looking at games and mechanics where one of our beloved designers zigged, when they easily could’ve zagged. Before we go our own way, we talk about Biosphere, The Ratcatcher: The Solo Adventure Game, and Stephenson’s Rocket. Timecodes: 01:46 – Biosphere 10:58 – The Ratcatcher: The Solo Adventure Game 19:10 – Stephenson’s Rocket 30:51 – Neilan’s at Gen Con! 31:42 – Designers “Zigging” 33:03 – Codenames 33:07 – Pictomania 35:25 – El Grande 35:36 – 6 nimmt! 37:25 – Blood of the Northmen 37:54 – Strasbourg 38:25 – FlowerFall 40:37 – Kitchen Rush 42:19 – Mercado de Lisboa 43:02 – Age of Steam Expansion: Portugal 46:51 – XCOM: The Board Game Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #190: Why Are You the Way That You Are?

    49:24

    One of the things we love to do, especially if we're playing a game for the first time, is analyse it while we're playing. We're sure this totally isn't annoying for those around us. In particular, we love picking apart little mechanical choices, imagining what the designer's thought process was, and wondering "why is that like that?" Before we get to speculating, we talk about Divinity Derby, Mexica, and Strasbourg. 03:28 - Divinity Derby 11:54 - Hab & Gut 13:22 - Mexica 19:06 - Strasbourg 24:35 - Taj Mahal 30:38 - Why is that mechanic like that? 33:28 - Risk 33:39 - Kemet 34:58 - Scythe 38:57 - Circadians: Chaos Order 39:57 - Tinner's Trail 41:22 - Ankh: Gods of Egypt 42:58 - Rocketmen 45:09 - The Oracle of Delphi Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #189: Uwe Baby

    57:36

    We love Uwe Rosenberg around these parts, whether it's because of our infatuation with polyominoes, the need to keep workers fed, or the strange mechanisms of animal breeding. Join us down the (cottage) garden path of his designography, and make sure to plant some vegetables along the way. Before we get agricultural, we talk about Bosk, Spies & Lies: A Stratego Story, and Glen More II: Chronicles. 00:58 - Bosk 07:57 - Spies & Lies: A Stratego Story 12:37 - Love Letter 15:21 - Glen More II: Chronicles 24:52 - BGG 201-300 Fantasy Draft Winner 27:49 - Strategicon 29:01 - Uwe Rosenberg 29:56 - Bohnanza 33:58 - Agricola 37:19 - Le Havre 39:34 - At the Gates of Loyang 40:58 - A Feast for Odin 41:20 - Patchwork 46:45 - Caverna: The Cave Farmers 47:34 - Nova Luna 49:36 - Hallertau 53:59 - Mamma Mia! 54:28 - Nusfjord Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #188: Whatever It Takes

    41:37

    Sometimes, if you want a game bad enough, you're willing to go to absurd lengths to acquire it. Whether it's because it's out of print, or just hard to come by, we've all put more effort than we should've into finding or playing specific games. We tell our stories of just how far we've gone. Before we secure the bag, we talk about Tinner's Trail, and The Night Cage. 01:10 - Tinner's Trail 08:13 - The Night Cage 17:31 - Games you've gone out of your way for 18:39 - Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective 23:36 - World of Warcraft: The Boardgame 27:06 - Discworld: Ankh-Morpork 27:57 - Dead of Winter 29:16 - Ugg-Tect 32:26 - HeroQuest 33:55 - Warhammer 35:38 - Watch the Skies Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #187: Fantasy Draft: BoardGameGeek 201-300

    55:31

    We're back with another fantasy draft, as we keep on moving down the BoardGameGeek top games list. If you're not familiar, we're each picking a standalone collection of five games before our picks get stolen out from under us. Want to win a $50 gift card? You've got to vote on whose collection is best! Before we get the knives out, we talk about Raiders of Scythia, and Ankh: Gods of Egypt. 02:01 - Raiders of Scythia 02:18 - Raiders of the North Sea 08:56 - Ankh: Gods of Egypt 29:09 - Drafting BGG's #201-300 32:58 - 1830: Railways & Robber Barons 34:52 - Flamme Rouge 36:51 - Beyond the Sun 37:59 - Cthulhu Wars 39:14 - Modern Art 39:27 - Glory to Rome 41:35 - Dune 42:49 - Imperial 2030 43:36 - The Resistance 44:35 - Arboretum 45:47 - Hive 46:47 - Glen More II: Chronicles 48:20 - Dwellings of Eldervale 49:35 - Dixit 51:23 - Burgle Bros Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store

    #186: Don’t Knock It Till You Try It

    45:06

    We all have types of games that, for whatever reason, we steer clear of. Often all that we've been missing is a more suitable introduction to the genre, or a game that's just enough of an outlier. This week, we try to tempt you toward genres that you might have written off, with the games that may just sway you. Before we change your minds, we talk about Pocket Galapagos, Cascadia, and Bites. 01:36 - Pocket Galapagos 08:57 - Cascadia 12:53 - Bites 18:34 - Games that'll turn you around 20:19 - Battle for Rokugan 23:54 - The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine 26:54 - Smartphone Inc. 30:53 - Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends 33:23 - Santorini 35:13 - Snakesss 38:49 - Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne Check out our wiki at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/wiki Join the discussion at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/discord Join our Facebook group at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/facebook Get a Board Game Barrage T-shirt at: https://boardgamebarrage.com/store
