Board Gamers Anonymous: Episode 104 - Game Mechanics that Only Work in a Perfect World

Play

For this special pre-Gen Con episode of Board Gamers Anonymous, Chris and Anthony sit down to discuss some of the brilliant game mechanics that really only work in a perfect world. From rules that people always break (intentionally or otherwise), to those they can't follow, there are some game systems that just don't work very well except under ideal circumstances. 

We're also talking about some of the big news in the gaming hobby, including Dice Tower Award winners, Spiel des Jahres nominees, Gen Con, and our recording schedule. 

 

Acquisition Disorders this episode include:

  • Martians: A Story of Civilization
  • Cry Havoc
