The Board Game BBQ Podcast

Episode 203: Scout, Trailblazers, Ankh: Gods of Egypt

August 16, 2022

While Sarah hosts the episode, Jules and Adrian are snuggling together at Adrian's house. The crew discuss Jules' holiday and the resulting gaming bonanza with Adrian and Def over the past week. Meanwhile in Sizzling Games, Sarah is hand-making and trick-taking, Jules has been avoiding fails and blazing trails and Adrian is defying odds and moving Gods.

We also recap last week's Question of the Pod: Are you more likely to love a game if you win the first time you play it? Thanks to everyone who contributed and shared their experiences.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Adrian blames Jules and babies for not playing Hues and Cues, Jules played all of the game modes in Trailblazers, and Sarah still has burncycle eyeing her off from the shelf. New oaths include Scout (Adrian), a non-committal lucky-dip (Jules), and to complete Mission 50 of The Crew (Sarah).

Question of the Pod: What game did you expect to hate and then after you played it you went and bought it?
