Welcome to the Pub

We’re just a handful of dads that like to play games, design games, make games, play your games, sleep occasionally, then play some more games.

We also enjoy contributing to the hobby in as many ways as we can. Below you will find a tool to rank your games, our most popular resources, videos, podcast episodes and more.

Board Game Ranking Engine

Load a list of your games into our ranking engine and then compare them two at a time. May the best game win.

I feel like my list this year is a strong list that contains some very good games that bring me great joy to get to the table. Here is my top 10 of 2017.

Shuck’s Top 10: 2017 Edition

It’s that time again! This is the 2nd year we’ve used our Ranking Engine and it’s neat to see my top 10 list finally settling in. For the most part it looks fairly similar to last year’s list but there are some interesting changes.

Bryan’s Top 10: 2017 Edition

This year marked a turn in some of my playing and collecting habits. I played with various groups regularly this year and decided I was going to play as many games other people owned to expand my experiences beyond my personal inclinations.
