Four Corners of the Board is hosting by 4 friends who enjoy getting together and playing board games. We are all relatively new to the hobby (a few years) and all have very different preferences of board games which can lead into some lively discussions!
Each podcast we take one board game and discuss it in depth. What we like and don't like about the game and maybe some ways we will play it differently in the future (variants).
This week we look at large publishers. Do we seek out large publishers? Do we trust the games they put out? Are we more willing to take a chance on an unknown game from them? Are their brands diluted?
We then do our pick from 5 large publishers.
This week we start with a brief announcement, then we talk about game endings. What are our favourite ways for a game to end? Can the ending of a game feel anticlimactic? Do we have a favourite way for a game to end?
We then do our Top 5 Game Endings
This week we look at bad expansions. Have you ever disliked an expansion to a game you love? What about an expansion that made you dislike the base game? We look at what makes a bad expansion and decide what exactly the role of an expansion is.
We then do our Top 5 Bad Expansions.
Evacuation Box Games
This week we look at what games would we back into an evacuation box if we had to leave our houses in a hurry. Do we have insurance on our games? Would we replace our games if something happened to them or start afresh?
We then look at our Top 5 Games We'd Pack into our Evacuation Box.
Dean and Graeme talk competitiveness in this episode. Since neither one of us is remotely competitive in any way we try and understand the need to do well. Does it effect our enjoyment of the game? Do we wish we were more competitive?
We finish with our Top 5 Games We Are Always Competitive In.
Both Dean and Graeme use BoardGameGeek on a regular basis and agree it is the best board game site out there. But in our perfect world, what would we add to the site to make it even better? We also look at the stats that are available on BGG and see which ones we find useful.
We then do our Top 10 Games from the Most Voted On Games from BoardGameGeek.com
