  1. I was thinking of non-car racing games, I love Cubitos. It's soooo zany! We really enjoy Flamme Rouge, too. I am not convinced there's a ton of strategy to it, but it plays quickly and it's just marvelous fun.

  2. You forgot Flamme Rouge. A great racing game

  3. Slightly disappointed you left CFR (Championship Formula Racing) out, the improved remake of the old Avalon Hill game Speed Circuit. Also sad that Heat! Is still hard to find. And… enough disappointment, I enjoyed the episode 😀

  4. I always look forward to the Board Game Buyer's Guide videos, as they always give me new games to add to my wishlist. (Kapow, Inside Job, and Glitch Squad this month) Thanks for all your work on these, Chaz, it is much appreciated!

  5. Another Darwin game? Was it an assignment at last years GAMA? And which one will rule them all? *so many questions.

  6. Wow, the He-Man game will not be available to back in europe, that sucks major………

  7. Where one could possibly find all those exquisitely beautiful posters that Chaz has behind him?

  8. Good video. Really like the Auto Racing comparison. One I like is out of print Games Workshop Dark Future. Its like Thunder Road except you can pop in different weapons on your car. It also includes motorcycles. Also a big fan of De and D. Thought about getting Rally man,

  9. Cool idea with Mario Karts…I love it….I still remember that pixelated giant fish balloon that popped and revealed confetti in the original (and best) Mario Karts! 😉

  10. "Dragons should be used as a last result"….I've generally found that true in life.

  11. We really enjoy Marvel Damage Control. It does something with cards we've never seen before…basically how you USE the card each round is what shows you what you can buy from the heroes.

  12. I got my copy of Heat yesterday! Can’t wait to play!

  13. If you're Canadian, Downforce has recently (and may still be, pending stock) available at Dollaramas for $5.

  14. Arm is hilarious. It's like you have your very own Thing (Addams Family).
    Oooo, what if you put a greenscreen sleeve on the rest of Arm and then it could be your very own Thing.

  15. Thanks for all the news. I will look into Glitch Squad and Illiterati for my word game group.

  16. I want a GI Joe version of the Masters of the Universe game mechanics.

  17. Seconded on using Mario Kart figures, they look cute!

  18. Cleaning up after a superhuman battle is such a tough and exasperating job. I should know.

    But I don't.

  19. I sympathize with you on the Great Wall! I had it backed at the Sundrop level but I had to cancel my pledge for money reasons 😢.. I'm happy to see it come to retail, but it's still bitter sweet. At least a retail version includes the miniatures and not the meeples.

  20. The game Automobiles is my favorite car racing game.

  21. Sooooo many racing games. But it's nice to see that Thing has grown a forearm.

  22. Crap! I missed getting a copy of Heat again! My copy of Thunderroad came this week, so I guess I will be post-apocalyptic road racing and bashing instead. At least for now.

  23. Excellent stuff as always Chaz. I'm now waiting for the stream of the box flipping contest between you and Rodney 😉
