Podcast 159 - Board Game Glossary – Other Games

Hello listeners, and welcome to the fourth installment of our Board Game Glossary! Today we're talking about other games, games which don't fit into the neat buckets we've created in the other Board Game Glossary episodes. There are many of these games so we focus on what makes some defined categories different and why we separated them. If you haven't already listened to the other episodes in this series, you can check them out as well!

For What We've Been Playing, we discuss International Tabletop Day and the games we played there.

We were at Origins last weekend and have a bunch of cool interviews and other content so check that out at YouTube.com/dragonsdemize!

Podcast 158 - Ancient World

It's been a minute since we've reviewed a Red Raven game, but the drought is over! Ancient World is the latest worker-placement, resource-managey goodness, and it plays 2-4. Players compete to collect banners which will earn them points at the end of the game. Banners can be found on Empire Cards which can be built, or on Titans which can be defeated by your armies. There's an intereseting parallel gameplay, as the armies are mostly separate from your citizens. You can hear more about it, as well as our official ratings, in this week's episode so give it a listen!

Podcast 157 - Board Game Glossary – Social Games

Hello listeners, and welcome to the third installment of our Board Game Glossary! Today we're talking about social games, games which are all about heavy player interaction and usually best with large numbers. This is also the first time we break things out into subcategories. In this case, we've got Hidden Identity, Restricted Communication, and Party games. Give the episode a listen to see what we think are the essential elements of each of these types of social games. And if you haven't already listened to the other episodes in this series, you can check them out as well!
