Dice Tower Network Podcast: Board Gamers Anonymous

Board Gamers Anonymous is an audio podcast about the tabletop hobby, covering card games, board games, and miniature games and the insane fun we have at the table together. Every two weeks BGA's hosts cover which games are triggering their acquisition disorders, what's been hitting the table, and whether the biggest new release is a buy, a play, or a dodge. The BGA crew strives to talk not only about what makes a game good, but the experiences that these games can give us and why they keep us coming back. As always, we have a seat saved just for you, so join us!

This week, we're looking at games you might like if you like video games (or more likely, if your stubborn video gaming friends are hesitant to try board games!)

First up, we ask our question of the week, "what one piece of advice would you give to someone brand new to gaming?"

For our acquisition disorders this week Anthony is looking at Xia: Embers of a Forsaken Star (and trolling himself in the process), while Chris looks at FINCA - a board game with...fruit!

This week, we're revisiting a classic episode (#85) and looking at games that do especially well in representing female characters. 

First up, we look at our question of the week. We asked the listeners what games thoroughly blew away their expectations, and share some of our own big surprises. 

Next up, we look at CO2, the revamped edition of the classic Vital Lacerda game, now on Kickstarter in our Acquisition Disorder for the week.
