This week, we kick things off with our question of the week, “What's a map or module you'd love to see for one of your favorite games?”

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Crystal Palace, a new one from Feurland Spiele and Capstone coming out at Essen this year, and Chris looks at Upstairs, Downstairs - an Obsession Expansion.

At the table this week, Anthony and Chris both look at City of the Big Shoulders, the first game from Parallel Games and one that has been hotly anticipated on both of our tables. We're also running a contest, so be sure to visit boardgamersanonymous.com or our facebook page at facebook.com/boardgamersanonymous for a chance to win a copy of City of the Big Shoulders.

Finally, in our feature, we look at games that can help turn gateway gamers on to heavier games.
