  1. Mechs vs Minions is a great pick, especially for travel, how many games do we have to carry to the table like a delicate platter or end up with components everywhere…MvM could be thrown around by baggage handlers and not a peice out of place with those great inserts 😂

  2. Under falling skies totally works for a Party Game! You nailed it!

  3. I would definitely recommend Food Chain Magnate in every category. It's a gateway game because it hooks you in and everyone will have fun from the first play. Strategy, not sure, the internet says it's there. Granted, it's not really a travel game, but it doesn't have to be. It's available everywhere, so you can just pick it up when you get to your destination. It's definitely a party game with all the food and drinks. The theme is amazing. The artwork is beautiful, especially on the map tiles. You really feel like you're an American burger in this game. Would recommend it to everyone👍

  4. You had me up until Burncycle! How did you guys do this without busting each other up! I was in stitches! 😂😂😂 some more considerations Gateway – Mage Knight, Strategic – Yahtzee, Travel Game – Roll Player Adventure, Party Game – Final Girl and thematic – Trouble with the Popomatic of course!

  5. The best part of Burncycle is playing in the water lol. That got me. Well played my friends.

  6. Hahahahaha!! The travel games were my favorite!!

  7. OMT! I was TOTALLY out to lunch on the gag! 🤣 I thought the travel game suggestions were a bit odd! 🤣 I was expecting little boxes to appear; but then this big orange box the size of Jamie comes out and I'm like – "YOU can fit that into your carry on?" 🤣 I should have known something was up when Jeff said: "And we've played this on the plane." Then Jamie starts to oversell the theme of Crib? I mean – I love a good game of Crib – it's just cards! 🤣 You guys really had me FOOLED!!!

  8. TROLL!!! 😂 love it!!! How you did this with straight face?

  9. I know I can't wait to break out foundations of rome or edge of darkness when I'm on vacation!! Lol, also I just love bringing people into the hobby with the super light masterpiece nemesis

  10. Played Kanban (not EV) last weekend, and man was it easy to get up and running, 2-3 minutes of rules, and the board was basically setup out of the box, took us all of 15 minutes to play, and then we played it 4 more times. Before we got into the 3 hour slog that was Just One.

  11. If you want a quick filler, try Mansions of Madness! And thanks for the bleeps! My and my family’s sensitive ears appreciate it👍

  12. Re: that convo @1-1:30, I feel your pain, Jamie. Just remember, it's important to cater to the talent or they might storm off set and stall the whole production. Just pet them and tell them they're pretty, they'll settle down, that's what I do with Rich 😉

  13. Yeah, I think you were low balling with Kanban. On Mars would be better to start with your in laws or children! Rules and playtime, just perfect for beginners!

  14. I was nursing a 103 fever from my booster shot yesterday when I was watching this. After double checking the date…for a few seconds, I'll be honest, I thought I was hallucinating. 😂

  15. I could not stop laughing! Thank you so much for this video!

  16. Thanks for the help! Just bought my 95 yr old grandma Kanban so she can break it out at the nursing home!

  17. Thank you and well done. I burst out laughing when you recommended Burncyle for a travel game. 🤣

  18. Thank you guys for these video 😂
    Nothing better than hearing Jamie's love for Agricola 👌🏻

  19. « I would play this (Kanban EV) with my mom  » . Wow, your mother is really into gaming! Then I caught on… 🤦 😂

  20. I'm not super familiar with Kanban so I didn't catch on at first, but at Root my eyes narrowed. Nice, had me going for a minute, I'm impressed there weren't more bloopers!

  21. Ha ha ha! How about Twilight Imperium for a light pub game.😂

  22. Hahaha, this was so much fun! I am amazed you could do this without laughing (although it must have take some tries, right??). When you began with Kanban EV I thought by myself.. I thought this was quite a complicated game?? And then Root came up.. I went straight to the comment section, because this didn't seem right😂😂. I laughed out loud the entire time.

  23. I knew something was up when you said you were drinking pineapple fizz.

  24. So i am a bit late to get to this and I had it on the background, and I was confused until you started saying root is fast and easy to get right away 🤣

  25. Lol took me a min to catch on lol I'm like "root as a gateway?" Lol

  26. Im laughing so hard with agricola.

  27. Jamie's description of Agricola – I could feel every fibre of your being mustering infinite levels of sarcasm, just perfect.

  28. "And we've played this on a plane!" Genuinely made me laugh out loud.

  29. Lol I don't know much about Kanvan EV but when you picked it as your gateway game I was like why was I under the impression that it's a really heavy game?? 😂

  30. Sweet! A parody video! You kept me laughing all of the way through! I think the bigger games are more appropriate for fine dining! While figuring out which fork is which… nothing says fine dining like Gloomhaven!

  31. I knew the gig was up when there was so much agreeing happening between you two. Not gonna lie I was so confused at first.

  32. OMG please do another video like this! Hilarious 🤣🤣🤣

  33. Sometimes I scrub through videos just to get an idea of what I can expect, and I was genuinely so shocked to see Root as a Gateway Game and Falling Skies as a Party Game without any context 😂 I just thought your time stamps were off 😅

  34. Bahaha, I was so confused for a good minute. I appreciate a good troll.

  35. I was waiting for the bit to end and you guys kept it up!! This was obviously Jeff’s favorite video of all time. 😂

  36. Root question for ya! Does it play well with 2 players or not? I'm so confused by the BGG score. A whopping 390 people said Not Recommended at 2 players, but 229 said Yes Recommended at 2 players. You're the experts on this game – whatcha think?

  37. Love how light and full of fun this video is…..great work guys, way to change up how these types of videos are typically done!

  38. Well done! How about recommendations for kid-friendly board game? Eldritch Horror, The Others, maybe Nemesis?

  39. I was confused until travel games and realized what you were doing here. Very clever! You guys are a hoot. Love your videos 😀

  40. I'm a dumbass. It took me to the travel games to figure out you weren't serious. I was like "not sure I agree with some of these…" Lol

  41. You got me! I was so confussed how you clueless you were for what a gateway game was. Almost to the point of being "they must just be amazing at games if Root is that easy to them" my partner thankfully figured you out faster.

  42. is this comedy now? I only had the comments to suggest this is a joke.
