Ep.33 Too Much Fluff

Ep.33 Too Much Fluff

11/14/2016


Board games at this moment in time seem to me to have lots of unnecessary things added to them. Bigger components that do nothing but be bigger. Elegant start player tokens that bump up the price. Minis instead of tokens. Boards that you don’t use.
Is this a good thing?

***Introduction***
Sponsorship
Mythic Battles Pantheon Kickstarter
Spoils of War Costume

***Things that make you go hmmmm*** 14:38
Agricola Expansions from Wiz kids.
Lookout is part of Mayfair?
Munchkin Marvel

***The good the not so bad and the ugly*** 20:38
Terraforming Mars
Baby clues

***Knights of Babblelot*** 36:52
We make an analysis of the games "For Sale" and "Onitama" see if it is worthy to make it onto the round table at Babblelot

***The Babble*** 1:07:38
Too much Fluff.

Are we happy to continue complaining about the price when it looks great?
Should upgraded components be sold separately?
Has change made gaming better?
