Ep 10 – What’s Your worst?
In Episode 10 we spend a lot of time chatting about some of our favourites games. I’m looking at you Raiders of the North Sea. I introduce Steve to geekgroup.app a web app that links to your BGG (Board Game Geek) account and visualizes your collection data in so many fun ways. This leads us to discover what is considered the worst games in our collections based on the BGG ranking system. Of course, being the lowest-ranked may not actually make them the worst.
What’s your lowest ranked game?

- Shem Phillips is the sole designer of Raiders of the North Sea. Steve may have said that he designed the game with S J Macdonald but that is not the case. The two are co-designers of the “ West Kingdom” trilogy of games including Architects, Paladins and Viscounts of the West Kingdom. The two are not brothers although it would appear that Sam Phillips, the artist behind Circadians: First Light and Raiders of Scythia is the brother of Shem. They all live in New Zealand.
- Inka and Markus Brand are indeed a dream team design team and a married couple. And, while we mentioned a couple of their games that we’re interested in playing, we failed to mention that they are the designers of Rise of Queensdale, a game that we’ve been interested in playing since having first heard about it.
