The Good the Board and the Last but Least Episode 158: Joe’s Top Ten

April 11, 2018

Episode 158 Joe’s Top Ten
From the man who can’t even seem to get self-deprecation right comes a list of his ten favorite games. Don’t hold it against the games; they did nothing to deserve being associated with such infamy. They’re the real victims here. Also, the audience.

Reviews:
Trent- Agricola, Master of Britain
Joe- quick update on Dominant Species
TC- Exit Pharohs Tomb & Arkham LCG update
Andy- 1862 Thoughts after a few plays. Also, get it on GMT p500

Joe’s Top Ten (No honorable mentions, close to the top 10, or disappointment or Andy comes and cuts the power to your house.)
Hype
Trent- L5R: Elemental Cycle
Joe- Fireball Island ALL IN KS!!!
TC- L5R 6x6 wallet apocalypse take 2
Andy- The Estates
