Quinns: Good morning, Paul. How are you on this brisk winter’s morning?

Paul: What does that look like?
But nevermind my failing body. Paul, voting has begun for the annual Pearple’s Choice awards on the SU&SD forum! Everybody reading this should go and vote for their games of 2017, and we’ll be discussing the results on our year-end podcast. Vote now to replace disappointment with frustration! Isn't democracy fun!
Paul: BoardGameGeek is a titan of the board game scene, one of the most comprehensive and consulted sites the hobby has, as well as a place to which we owe a huge debt of inspiration. It's also home to the absolute Board Game Geekiest among us, namely those with a monthly allowance for small zip-lock baggies.

Just what do we make of those most esteemed of titles that are forever locked in an eternal battle for a place in BGG's Top 100 rankings?

So come with us as we count down the games in a whole week's worth of analysis and adventure!
