Another two weeks have passed, so it's time for episode #3 of The BoardGameGeek Show, with Scott, Lincoln, and me talking about what we've been playing, things in the news, what's happening on BGG itself, and our time at the Spielwarenmessee 2018 trade fair, which just ended on Sunday, February 4. Lincoln and I were on site for three days shooting game overview videos, and this was Lincoln's first trip to the Messe in Nürnberg, so he talked about that experience while I said things like, "Shucks, young'un, 'taint nothin' a man ain't seen before on a thousand other worlds."
Here's a rundown of what we talk about on the show, with start times for those who want to jump ahead:
