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!

What's hot on BGG right now? Join us for our monthly BGG Hotness review. Chris and Anthony delve into the 15 games atop the hotness this week, along with a pair of new reviews and much more.

It's time for another If You Like episode. This week, we're digging into the biggest of them all - Twilight Imperium 4th Edition and six games you might like (at varying weights) if you're a fan of this epic experience.

Before we dive into that, however, we asked our question of the week - your favorite asymmetrical implementation of player powers or starting conditions.

Next up, we dove into our Acquisition Disorders, discussing Everdell and Fields of Arle: Tea & Trade. Then our At the Table reviews for this week, featuring Gaia Project and Dinosaur Island.

It's that time of year again - time for us to run wild with our acquisition disorders and list off 25+ games that we're excited to play in 2018. This year, the list was extra long so we had to do some pruning to make it manageable. 

Before we dive into our most anticipated, we asked the listeners what their most anticipated were and the answers were extremely varied. We then dove into our recent plays with reviews of Rajas of the Ganges and Azul. 

Finally, we shared the 30 games we're most excited to see in 2018. Check them out:
