    TGT On Topic 292: Top 10 BGA Games

    TGT On Topic 292: Top 10 BGA Games

    This week we accept our addiction to Board Game Arena (.com) and look at the top games on the site.  First we look at them as rated by Board Game Geek, and then we look at them by what's being played on BGA itself.  And we throw in a few that didn't make either of those lists that we really like.

    We promise - we're not sponsored by BGA, but we probably should be...

    TGT On Topic 291: Player Count

    TGT On Topic 291: Player Count

    This week we take a closer look at how the number of players effects the overall enjoyment of a game.  Should all games strive for max player count, or should we avoid the max whenever possible?  Is 2-4 players a myth?  How do games attempt to adjust for different player counts?  And will we ever stop talking about BGA?  (nope to that last one)

    TGT On Topic 290: Losing

    This week we talk about losing.  We've heard over and over that losing can be "character building" but what does that mean?  Is losing really not all that bad?  Why lose when you could win?  This one is dedicated to all you losers out there!  (In the nicest possible way, honest, this is a good one.)

    TGT On Topic 288: FFG’s LCGs

    This week we take a closer look at the "Living Card Games" (LCG) currently in print by Fantasy Flight Games (FFG).  Which, are all co-op games; The Lord of the Rings, Arkham Horror, and Marvel Champions.  Each host gives their first impressions of one of these games and by the end, we may just find that there's an LCG for each of us.

    TGT On Topic 287: The Deck Building Barrier

    This week we talk about how games that require deck building (MtG, Arkham Horror The Card Game, Marvel Champions, ect.) can have a huge barrier to entry in trying and continuing to play these kinds of games.  If you're someone who loves deck building, these games are for you.  If you're not, we come up with some pretty good alternatives that can get you in the game with less friction than you might think.

Cool Piano Guy ,

A Boardgame Podcast to Listen To

Excellent boardgame podcast that isn’t a typical boardgame review podcast. Discussion of boardgame related topics is the Tabletop Game Talk’s focus, not boardgame reviews. Chris, Kitty, and Fletcher (and occasionally Josh) have great chemistry and present a nice diversity of boardgaming perspectives and playing tastes from very casual and lighter games through to heavier games and more hardcore gaming. With over 200 podcast episodes published their commitment to the podcast and their listeners is impressive as they have released a podcast episode every week except for the ever so rare missed Tuesday and they are still producing podcasts discussing interesting topics and clearly having fun doing it. If you are looking for a family friendly boardgame podcast that isn’t another game review podcast, give Tabletop Game Talk a listen.

Great Podcast

Great banter. Interesting subjects. Fun to listen to.

GritHog ,

The people and their games

Podcasts sink or swim based on the hosts’ personalities. TGT succeeds marvelously in this department.
They range from the more casual to the obsessed and offer both wonderfully contrasting opinions and enjoyable banter.
They’ve been on my “The Best” playlist for years.
