Echo Screen Live #29: Board Games Revisited (9/4/13)

Chat with us live every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9PM Eastern!

Tonight we talk board games, but not your grandpappy’s Monopoly… modern “designer” games. What are our favorites? What are your favorites? What’s the state of the industry right now?

All that and your questions on this episode of Echo Screen Live!

    This is perfect! I was just in GameStop today and I saw a SWEET Battlestar Galactica board game. I wanted it so bad, but didn’t buy it because I fear it may be impossible to gather enough people to play a board game these days, let alone at least 4 or 5 Battlestar Galactica Fans in the podunk town I live in…

    Also on a sidenote: I am a huge fan of the Monopoly board game. I ironically play it on my xbox 360 quite often…

    Maybe I wasn’t paying attention the whole time (you know, I have to eat at some point), but you didn’t mention a game named Dixit. As far as Gateway games go, that one works pretty well and it’s pretty fun, simple, not the kind of game you’ll play all the time, but something enjoyable to mix things up.

    It never gets old to hear the Commodore in his a3DSeist stance (accept Pokemon as your personal savior). I should definitively stay up for one of the Echoscreens one of these days.
