Themes, Themes, etc.

This Top 10 episode is all about themes, and it isn’t even a top 10. Our hosts first give a rundown of their top 5 favorite themes, ones that make their head turn, and say “I should look closer at this game…..” They also have a list of 5 unique, well implemented, or most wanted themes. To wrap themes up, they also have a couple that they are just plain sick of. The show wraps up with some community responses, including BoardGameGeek and Twitter.
