Holy GenCon reviews! This is the first of a multi-part series where we cover all of the fun stuff we played post-GenCon. There was a LOT of games and, to our surprise, much of it was pretty good! We won't keep all of these games on our shelves, but we can say that pretty much everything we talk about over the next few episodes will appeal to someone out there in our audience. This week, we chat about "filler" games. We do not mean that term pejoratively! These are games that might slide into anyone's collection and provide fun for families and gamers alike. Trainmaker (6:52) Railroad Ink (11:30) Istanbul: The Dice Game (17:27) Palm Island (24:53) Maiden's Quest (29:28) The Draugr (39:07)
We did it! Episode 100! The whole ENGN family has gathered - Anthony, Jason, and Liz. We chat about things we are thankful for, both with reference to the pod as well as to the larger world of board gaming. First, all three of us share some thoughts about an older game we are are very thankful for. These are three games that have permanent places in our collections, so we are happy to share about them with you - Nations (4:13), Space Alert (15:40), and Baseball Highlights 2045 (26:45). After that, we share some reflections about the last 100 episodes. We chat about noteworthy past episodes, favorite interviews and segments, and some life difficulties behind the mic that the pod has helped us overcome. If that wasn't enough, we also have some audio clips from past guests - gamers, content creators, and designers - who wanted to share things they are thankful about in the board gaming hobby. Thank you for joining us for 100 episodes. We're just hitting our groove. We hope you stick around for at least 100 more.

Chris and Anthony share their top ten 3 player games this week, diving into the board games that play best (or only) with three players.
First up, though, we dive into the question of the week, asking everyone out there (including you!), with TI4 released and Eclipse 2E coming next year, what other massive game do you think is due for a major design refresh?
Then we dive into this week's acquisition disorders, including Anthony's first pass at the new Imperial Assault: Legends of the Alliance app, and Chris's interest in the newest Cathala game coming next year, Imaginarium.
At the table this week, Anthony played This Belongs in a Museum, and Chris got a chance to try the greatest hits mashup of euro mechanics, Clans of Caledonia.
Finally, we dive into our top 10 three player games, sharing the games that we feel are the best fit for your game nights if you only have three people at the table.
Question of the Week: 5:35 Acquisition Disorders: 9:53 This Belongs in a Museum: 18:43 Clans of Caledonia: 24:44 Top Ten 3-Player Games: 34:34 If you haven’t yet, be sure to connect with us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/boardgamersanonymous), Twitter (http://twitter.com/bgapodcast), and on our website (www.boardgamersanonymous.com).
