Episode 122 : Cat & Ludie’s Top 5 Boardgames

Recorded in War Room Studios – Albuquerque, NM : 3/11/20

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com, Academy Games and Van Ryder Games.  In this episode Josh and Brandon are joined by Cat and Ludie, who are asked to answer a very specific question: What are the top 5 boardgames of all times?  Expect some very different answers from these two – tons of surprises are in store!  Of course if Cat is in the studio, it’s time for a rousing round of Questions from the Hat with Cat! Josh and Brandon also discuss their recent plays of: Pappy Winchester (Blue Orange Games), Succulent (Renegade Game Studios), Camel Up v2 (Eggertspiel) and Skulk Hollow (Thunderworks Games).  We also take a moment to turn into your favorite BREAKING NEWS outlet, offering up the very first details on expansion #1 for Skulk Hollow, Maul Peak!  Brandon’s group recently finished The Rise of Queensdale (Ravensburger) and offers a final look at the experience as a whole.  TOMORROW is bright in board games, and the recent announcement of Hansa Teutonica Big Box, Back to the Future: Back in Time, Wolfenstein: The Board Game and two (2!!!) Scooby-Doo games proves it!
