  1. Jamie, are you a Swiftie like me!? ✨✨🫶🫶🫶

  2. Space base ! It’s just drafting cards for others but building your engine is so much fun whoever win

  3. Your play through of Diced Veggies on Twitch really makes me excited for that game. PS Jamie, I LOVE your shirt! ❤

  4. Totally with you on Dice Miner and Sea Salt & Paper. I would add Nana to this list, which is go fish + memory. Sounds terrible, but it’s so much fun!

  5. Jixia Academy! We like pulling that one out for a quick fun game! Minimal components/setup! 🙌

  6. Dice Miner is such a fun game. Our most played game we picked up in 2022.

  7. Thanks for including the time stamps. It is appreciated.

  8. Oh yay y'all got some of the tiny gum sized Pack o'games! I think I had mentioned those on a live Q&A y'all did a while back! They are all so cute 😍

  9. I’m looking forward to getting Veggie Dice. Such a cute idea.

  10. Literally my first thought when you said the premise of this video was that "Strike" should be there, and lo and behold… I can't believe how fun such a simple, almost dumb seeming game is.

  11. Thank you so much for including Sea Salt & Paper ❤!

  12. I think numbsters is my favorite buttonshy so far. Granted I've only played 5 of them but still!

  13. Always a blast to watch you guys!!!
    I cannot wait to find Sea Salt and Paper available!!!
    I've heard estimated dates of July I think, but no luck yet.

  14. I'd add 6 Nimmt! and Deep Sea Adventure to your list. Those games, along with Can't Stop, were played by us on BGA or Zoom during the lockdown and created lots of laughter (and noise). I've wanted to play Mystic Paths for sometime and if I'm ever in a large group I'd love to try Fuji Flush. Great topic for a video! (P.S. Just remembered another one: Blank Slate, which I've only played via Zoom, is another game where you don't need to buy the box. I suggested it for a livestream one time and just supplied the group with 10 prompts and we were off and running! Weirdly fun.)

  15. Did you guys get more ink? When the tattoo tour video? When is Jeff getting the Fall Root map tattooed to full scale on his back?

  16. This game is really old, it's from the 1980s. Cries softly in my glass of Ensure.

  17. Games that don't sound fun, or shouldn't be good, from the description:
    (in order of surprising / fun)
    Telestrations
    Just One
    Monikers
    Koba Yakawa
    Home Worlds

  18. Fun video. "It is from the 1800s or '80s, one of them." LOL.

    Battle Sheep is my go-to easy game that is a lot of fun. The components are incredible, and the area control is a lot of fun.

  19. I sometimes feel like I'm either from the 80's or the 1800's. I definitely experienced one of those two things, but no more hints. I'll just say I still think of Can't Stop as that brash new kid on the gaming scene. Really all I'm trying to say is that I'm super old.

  20. Great vid as always and mad props for always do eloquently explaining how games work in such a short space of time chef’s kiss

  21. Bought Sea Salt and Paper because your recommendation before. It's my gf's new fav game. Love it

  22. What a great idea for a video! My favorite fun one is "Impact" — a push your luck dice game.

  23. Jamie's love for Killer Klowns continues to be one of my favorite things.

  24. Stew from button shy is a great filler game that plays really good at 2-players …and yes, it shouldn’t be as much fun as it is

  25. Wow, what a throwback. I played Can't Stop as a kid growing up, about 40 years ago. My parents still have this game, that's how hold it is.

  26. First of all , love your ROVE shirt Jamie! These are really great picks, looking fwd to trying out some you mentioned. I 100% agree on Can't Stop, Strike and Town 66. Waiting on Sea Salt and Paper. This week we played a card game called "Diamonds" that fits this topic of …it shouldn't be good/fun but it is. It's a trick-taking game that rewards you for losing basically, played it at 4, but goes up to 6 I think.

  27. I think Draftosaurus would qualify for way better than it has any right to be. Also, if we're looking at super simple, I gotta mention Similo.
    Also also, I'm curious if you've tried the Harry Potter version of Strike? I'm interested in picking that up, but wondering if the theme/added spells is going to take away from the sheer simplicity…

  28. I bought dice miner on the recommendation of another video you all made. Good fun. Just got in sea salt and paper, can't wait to play that. Have you all played dead man's draw? Great little push your luck game.

  29. my wife and I L O V E splendor, BUT … we just played Century Golem Edition and woooooow! it blew us away! turns are blazing fast, has deepr level of strategy than splendor without giving you AP. I said to my wife "ahem..I think this just killed splendor" and she qas like "yup, true, but I don't care, thai game is so good!"

  30. oh i see that Jeff has had an addition to his tattoo on the right forearm.. nice !

  31. Bruno Cathala made a really great small card game with Sea, Salt and Paper. Love it too..

  32. Love Letter… 16 or so cards should not be as exciting, but we keep playing and loving it!

  33. Magic Maze, all the way. I was so hesitant to get it, but it's amazing! (and silent 😉 )

  34. Tak..an unexpectedly simple, but strategic game. Give it a try sometime. It's actually one of the games that got us into board gaming.

  35. I think Tsuro and rhino hero super battles hit this for me. I guess a little bit component wise but gameplay is so simple that you can play it with anyone and it’s just fun. And everyone we play with wants to go buy it and I don’t think we’ve ever played just once. It’s always like run it back
