The Board Game BBQ Podcast

Episode 190: Viticulture World, Mafia De Cuba, Nemesis: Lockdown

May 17, 2022

On this episode Mike, Jules and Dan shake off their boardgame-induced hangovers and debrief the latest BGBBQ Melbourne Game Day. The team share their highlights from the day including Decrypto, Azul: Queen's Garden, Unsettled and 6Nimmt!. Our Sizzling Games this week are Viticulture World, Mafia de Cuba, and Nemesis: Lockdown.

In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Wingspan vs Root, before we cue up the next battle: Architects of the West Kingdom vs Everdell. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Jules completed a fully-painted teach of Nemesis: Lockdown at the Game Day, Mike played Architects of the West Kingdom with all expansions, but sadly Dan fell short of getting Unsettled to the table. New oaths include Paint The Roses (Dan), Age of Steam (Jules), and Monsters on Board (Mike).
