Des Jahres Galore!

We are back with another episode packed full of gaming goodness! We kick off the show as usual by chatting about what we’ve been playing lately. Poor Tiff has not had a chance to play any games but Matt and Dan were busy crossing off some new hotness. We then discuss our Top of the Stack lists for May.

On May 18, 2015, the jury of German board game journalists will announce their nominees for the Kinderspiel, Spiel and Kennerspiel des Jahres awards. In celebration of this, Dan has whipped up some trivia to test Matt and Tiff’s knowledge of the famed German awards. Following a brutal trivia battle, the gang chats about their nominee predictions for both the Spiel des Jahres and Kennerspiel des Jahres. Have a listen and see if you agree.

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF/PODCAST CO-HOST : Allow myself, to introduce myself. Boardgaming since the womb, I have an unsound infatuation with buying, playing, discussing, photographing, and writing about boardgames. As a boardgame aesthetics enthusiast (say that 5 times fast) you'll typically find that I spend a large majority of the game examining the design, art, and components. I prefer strategic eurogames but will play just about anything these days (except Arkham Horror). And I love Pearl Jam.
