The latest episode of the Strange Assembly podcast is now available for download! Chris, Jay, and Mike discuss the best tabletop board and card games of 2017, and the best (that we’ve played so far) of 2018, then bestow “Game of the Year” for 2017 and a preliminary GotY for 2018.
Strange Assembly – Episode 252 – Game of the Year 2017/2018
2017 Game of the Year – Gloomhaven (Cephalofair Games)
- Runner Up: Charterstone (Stonemaier Games)
- Honorable Mentions: Anachrony (Mindclash Games), Sid Meier’s Civilization: A New Dawn (Fantasy Flight Games), Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game (Fantasy Flight Games)
2018 Preliminary Game of the Year (tie) – Root (Leder Games); Keyforge: Call of the Archons (Fantasy Flight Games)
- Honorable Mentions: Brass: Birmingham (Roxley Game Laboratory); Dice Throne: Season 1 (Roxley Game Laboratory)
Note: Dice Throne is in the unusual position of getting an honorable mention despite not being mentioned in the episode. The lists in the episode just belong to the three of us; Dice Throne happened to get enough support from voters not appearing on the podcast without making the Top 5 of those of us in this episode.
