The Board Game BBQ Podcast

Episode 191: So Clover!, Tortuga 1667, Clans of Caledonia

May 24, 2022

On Episode 191 Jules, Adrian and Conor discuss the Brisbane Game Day, tournament board gaming, and some current stand-outs in the crowdfunding circuit. In Sizzling Games, Adrian has been getting so clever in So Clover, Jules has been sailing the seas of Tortuga 1667, and Conor has been collecting cotton in Clans of Caledonia.

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

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Adrian played Yak with his family, Conor called in Jules to sub for his oath last week, and Jules used the "I wasn't supposed to be here" card. New oaths include Ortus Regni (Jules), Marvel Champions: Nova & Ironheart (Conor), and Carnegie (Adrian).
