This Week In Games - 4.19.09

Board Game Examiner finds himself in a debate about the state of board game podcasts today.

Also, he discusses the old Sid Sackson game, Maloney's Inheritance.

GamerChris reviews the game If Wishes Were Fishes. I'd never heard of this one before, but it does sound quite intriguing.

Board Game News has a rundown of what everyone in the blogosphere is talking about The Gathering of Friends 2009.

Also at Board Game News, Larry Levy posts part 1 of a compilation of all the games he's been playing these last 6 months.

The guys at the Spiel review two gangster themed games: Chicago Poker and Family Business.

Finally, Yehuda offers this excellent piece on the Eurogame revolution. It is quite informative both in the concepts covered and the examples used to bring those concepts to life.

Well, that's it for this week. Doesn't seem like I did much gaming this week, mostly just that Magic draft on Friday and a few online games here and there. I'll be in Vermont next weekend for my Mom's birthday, so no big game nights then either, although perhaps I can get Ben and Kelly to play some Pandemic or Dominion.
