The Board Game BBQ Podcast

Episode 194: Dune Imperium, 1862: Railway Mania in the Eastern Counties, Rajas of the Ganges

June 14, 2022

It's full steam ahead as Mitch stokes the fires and tries to keep Episode 194 on track, which isn't easy with Def and Adrian on board as well.

The lads discuss games based on other intellectual properties, the ongoing fascination of trains in boardgames, and revisiting a classic.

In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Targi vs Anachrony, before we cue up the next battle: Quacks of Quedlinburg vs Too Many Bones. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Mitch and Def both played more burncycle, Def also played Andean Abyss with Mitch and Conor, while Adrian still hasn't erased the errors of his butchered phoenix mini. New oaths include On Mars: Alien Invasion (Def), Pandemic: Reign of Cthulu (Mitch), and a solo playthrough of The Trancontinental (Adrian).
