Episode 256 – Top Ten Sub-Hobbies of Gaming

To kick things off this week we look at the listeners’ responses to the question of the week, asking about their most anticipated upcoming releases of 2020.

In acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Mariposas – the new game from Elizabeth Hargrave coming this summer – and Chris looks at Paris, the newest collaboration between Michael Kiesling and Wolfgang Kramer coming to Kickstarter soon.

At the table this week, Anthony recounts his initial play of Roads and Boats. While not a final review after one play, he offers some insights on who might enjoy it and whether he’d play it again.

Chris then dives into another Splotter game, this time the expansion for Food Chain Magnate: The Ketchup Mechanism and Other Ideas.

Finally, in our feature, we look at 10 sub-hobbies of board gaming in no particular order.
