  1. El juego de carreras, se ve padrisimo.!! buen video.

  2. Oh man I am so thankful Nidavellir is getting attention! Could be a new favorite game soon 🙂

  3. Matthew, I would still love for you to teach and play Heart of Crown with me at a Con sometime in the future. Pretty please!!!

  4. great video!

    Question. I recently became a patron and I was just wondering when you usually have the poll available?

  5. Always fun to watch. Matthew Jude, the King of DxM! 🙂

  6. I laughed so hard during No. 7. Poor Matthew… I feel for ya, buddy.

    No. 4: in the game Shadow Hunters, one of the player victory conditions is literally that the player on their left wins. They can be dead themselves, but win if the other player wins!

    No. 3: Oh my goodness, yes! I adore Onitama! Gorgeous game, fantastic gameplay!

  7. The Fjorde bit, especially the “almost IMMEDIATELY” part, made me laugh out loud, which earned me dubious looks in the subway, thanks Matthew..

  8. For a moment I thought you said Viking Clown Leaders instead of Clan Leaders for Ragnarocks, and now I demand that be the next expansion!

  9. Lol. I expected games that have been around awhile.

  10. " I can't wait for a campaign driven game based off Roll Player"

    "Laughs in D&D".

  11. Entertaining AND informative! Maybe the best…nay, definitely the best, video I've seen all day! It's not even lunchtime yet and I am that certain this is best. Well done!

  12. Fjorde is the German edition, not Dutch.

    Flamme Rouge is a very fun light racing game. I think Thunder Alley/Grand Prix use the racing-with-drafting in a more interesting way at the cost of added complexity. For me Rallyman has the most novel/unique racing mechanic.

  13. Been playing heart of crown online, I really really like it, talked about it on my latest podcast episode.

  14. Oh dear. I did not count on being mentioned so many times! blushes

  15. What not to love… how bout a box full of spiders… lol thanx for making me spit out my coffee, Well said a perfect Richard Ayoade.

  16. Ragnarocks is the first game I have ever backed! Super excited to play.

  17. Anyone else see Matthew’s apologies list eventually turning into Bucky’s amends-making notebook from The Falcon and the Winter Solider? 😄

  18. After seeing that plush penguin in front of the red meeple on Matt's shelf, the channel could be renamed to "Watch It Played By Penguins." Maybe Matt's hinting a possible 2 channel in the future.

    Anyway, nice video. The game that got my attention was #9, Heart Of Clowns, since I play a lot of Dominion. It got me interested to learn more about it.

    Plus, it's nice seeing Robot Quest Arena as a sponsor in the video, especially since the company making it is well-known for excellent deckbuilding games like Star Realms. I'll have to look into that, too.

    And funny enough, the video being sponsored by a deck-building game, and a deck-building game on the list might interest me to watch a "Top 10 Deck-Building Games Of The Month" in the future, if that ever happens on this channel.

    Finally, it would be nice to see Robot Quest Arena as an animation series in the future, since it would be cute for kids to watch. I also hope that it's a fun games for kids too, but in general, it's good for everyone in that regard.

  19. Flamme Rouge is very good and am yet to play a better reading game💙✌🎲

  20. Great video! Love to hear the viewer votes. Flamme Rouge is definitely on my bucket list. Still going to keep voting for Kemet. Also, I haven’t watched a Spider-Man move since the great Toby Maguire’s masterpiece performance in Spider-Man 3.

  21. Really interesting list of games this month. Good job, viewers! And also Matthew. And Chaz. He did have to wrangle everyone, after all.

  22. Robot quest arena looks cool. Onitama is a great game. If you want to play with your kids use the miniatures from Kung Fu Panda (the only good thing of the game)

  23. In "ANNO 1800", the people will want luxury goods… Like Danish copies of the game "Fjordes"!

  24. Hilarious. Fighting people with axes and unkind words.

  25. Rallyman – one of favourite racing game. I think I will also gonna buy Rallyman Dirt and GT RX later…

  26. Was enjoying the video and got distracted by this 0:50 … anyone want to tell them, correct me if I am wrong, I am pretty sure that Mic isn't positioned correctly. That mic is recording the floor reflections.

  27. Matthew cracking up at his own bit after "oh the times we'd share" was hilarious. Backed it up and laughed every time he starts laughing. Pure giggles.

  28. Hearth of crown is really good, the different strategies offered by the different princesses is really a good twist on deckbuilding (thank you Jamie to own the game, I don't have to buy it)

  29. you can send me the dutch copy I speak enough to use it 🙂

  30. I could palpably feel the pain of that Fjorde story! My deepest commiserations, such pain cannot be suppressed, thank you for trusting us with your hurts, we shall help you bear (not chain smoking) them.
