The State of Games, Ep. 157 – The One About Just a Little Filler

stateofgameslogonewLast podcast we pulled out all the intellectual stops and dove head deep into the rabbit hole of Game Theory. Judging from the listener numbers that wasn’t exactly what all you dear listeners wanted to hear. Oh well, at least we had fun discussing it! We wanted to get deep again with a chat about rules, if they’re getting worse in board games, and what we might do to fix them, but we decided to table that one for another time, return a bit to formula, and focus on something a little less… filling.

    The time markers are a welcome addition. Way to class up the joint around here!

    My top five fillers:
    Hanamikoji (elegant and tense)
    Coup (terrific bluffing game)
    Love Letter (the original micro-game and a universal favorite)
    Visby aka Santo Domingo (great fun trying to outthink others)
    Melee (really rewarding bluffing game)
