Saturday, May 27th, 2017

Paul: Gawd, I love BGG. It’s one of my favourite gaming places on the internet and this has been a fascinating journey. Quinns: It’s an astonishingly rigorous database.

As we close out this feature, I’m simply left wanting to play more board games. Which is...

Quinns: Matt, we have to abort this feature! Reddit’s disapproval is reaching critical levels. Matt: That’s not the Reddit alarm, that’s my egg timer.

Quinns: As we continue our marathon-like jog through Board Game Geek’s top 100 games ever, today I can reveal that we’re out of the weeds. We’ve played every single board game in the 60-41 slot!

Paul: Our exhaustive look at the games jostling their way about BoardGameGeek’s Top 100 continues! Today, we have everything from international illness to urban development to mischievous academics.

SU&SD Take on The Board Game Geek Top 100: 101-81

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

BoardGameGeek is a titan of the board game scene, one of the most comprehensive and consulted sites the hobby has, as well as a place to which we owe a huge debt of inspiration. It’s also home to the absolute Board Game Geekiest among us, namely those with a monthly allowance for small zip-lock baggies.
