Board Gamers Anonymous: Episode 259 - Our Friends' Favorite Games: The Great Zimbabwe

Play

To kick things off this week we look at the listeners’ responses to the question of the week: "What's your favorite "feeling" you get from a game - for me it's solving a particularly tough puzzle. Do you enjoy the feeling of a perfect die roll? A cascade of effects from a tableau you've built, the awe of a board covered in miniatures?"

In acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at the likely sequel to Castles of Burgundy, Castles of Tuscany, coming from Alea and Stefan Feld later this year. Chris looks at the newest from Genius Games on Kickstarter, Genotype: A Mendelian Genetics Game. 

At the table this week, Anthony played a short and quick two player co-op trick gaming (really!) - Fox in the Forest: Duet. Chris digs into a pile of games, including Blood Rage with the new Promos Box, Marvel Champions: The Card Game, Quadropolis, and Three Kingdoms Redux

Finally, in the feature, Anthony and Chris welcome Michael - a Patreon Backer and a good friend of Anthony's in Pittsburgh - to the podcast to discuss one of his favorite games, The Great Zimbabwe. Prepare for a deep-dive discussion into an underrated gem in the Splotter lineup.
