  1. Viewer Mark W(46lat!*kfu$parhe here. Shockingly, Rodney pronounced my last name perfectly in the Keyflower segment. Most people struggle more with it. That kind of preparation is the mark of a true professional! 😉

  2. Excellent stuff as always. I'm now waiting for Coup: the watch it played expansion 😉

  3. My 5 year old daughter legit beat me at New York Zoo the other day 🤦

  4. Well, if Rodney does get ousted, I hear there's an opening over at Pair of Dice Paradise.

  5. "Luke came home from university" Man I've been watching this channel for a long time! It would be cool to do an old watch it played game now that everybody is grown up.

  6. There must be a how its player on Obsession this game needs a Rodneys box flip!

  7. Definitely give Obsession a try, it's a very solid game! The Upstairs Downstairs expansion is great too. The theme isn't something that would pull me in, but it's so well integrated and very well designed. Really loving it (coming from someone who enjoys really crunchy euros).

  8. Oh man, so glad I caught this list. I've been dying for a board game implementation of my fantasy of starting a geisha themed boat company! Now all I need is a board game that fills my need for a 1920's paperboy in charge of a steampunk criminal enterprise that smuggles veined cheeses out of Britain. The paperboy works for Renquist Newspaper Magnates and wants to be free of their shackles, but there is no escape…

  9. I'm just imagining the power struggle that will result with Rodney's ousting. Chaz would make an initial play for head of the channel, but then everyone else would oust him too because his scripts would just get out of control without the proper checks in place. Matt and Paula would never stand taking orders from each other so they would oust each other through a Mutually Assured Destruction scenario. This would leave Monique and Navine to reign supreme over an empty channel, so they'd just leave, therefore…yeah don't fire Rodney. You need him!

  10. ISS Vanguard looks awesome. Matthew is entitled to his opinion, but he's wrong. 😉

  11. You should definitely try The Great Zimbabwe. I would love to watch Rodney explain the rules.

  12. The old timey knight going to slay the dragon, enters the cave, and walks on to the set of the original British bake off

  13. Just played my first game of Flamecraft last weekend. It is definitely lighter weight but still strategic enough to keep veteran board gamers interested, but easy enough for gateway gamers!

  14. This really feels like y'all are going, "Rodney's totally staying!… unless?? Nah, just kidding… unless????"

  15. As an American – totally understand and also kinda jealous of you both…..

    I also literally laughed till I choked at the gear malfunction….

  16. Played keyflower for the first time a few weeks ago and I was blown away by the gameplay. Really interesting mechanics with the colored meeples for bidding that I haven't seen in another game before. I am looking forward to playing it again!

  17. A quick note: the images posted with the Obsession game were from the game's development stages. The final game's art is different than what you saw in the video. You can find out all about the game, and see the final art here: https://www.kayentapublishing.com/
