Episode 5: What Makes a Good Game?

We explore what makes a good game for us. We all have biases when it comes to games.  So to give our listeners a better idea of our own unique perspectives and preferences, we dive into the aspects of games that either draw us in or push us away. We also spend some time discussing how we evaluate games and some of our favorite board game reviewers.  In addition, we highlight the game “The Ancient World” by Ryan Laukat, a worker placement game where your workers have different skill levels as you build your empire and fight titans to win the favor of five tribes (not those Five Tribes). As always, we close out the episode with the Punch List that asks us to pinpoint our favorite artwork in a board game (with a slight caveat).
