Gumbo Live! #34 with Chris Wray of The Opinionated Gamers — Handicapping the Spiel des Jahres

One of the Krewe de Gumbo’s favorite guests, Chris Wray, returned to Gumbo Live! this past week. He brought with him tidbits on a number of games he has played since Essen Spiel, and handicapped the field of games that are eligible in his mind for the Spiel des Jahres. It is early, and the jury is still playing games, but it was an interesting conversation about the best family weight games that have been published in Germany this past year.

Plus, he and BJ chatted about thematic Euros they have played, and the Krewe listed their favorites. It was up to Chris to decide which of the games was The Most Thematic Euro.

This Tuesday, Carla Kopp of Weird Giraffe Games returns to talk about Life After Kickstarter. See you then.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
