  1. I love has fast and concise your video is. This is what I have been looking for, thank you!

  2. Nice! Looking forward to Sagrada Artisans , Wandering Towers, Emerge, and Lost Ruins expansion! I also want to pick up Sea Salt and Paper. And World Wonders looks cool too! Thanks so much! Happy friday and have a great weekend!

  3. Thank you for mentioning Neotopia! 😊 — André Santos

  4. I haven’t seen such deft use of segues since the first act of The Avengers.

  5. LOVE THIS! Great coverage, Chaz! I also loved the new intro of explore, learn, play. VERY WELL DONE!!!!

  6. How many of these games have paid for watch it played videos? Because this just feels like a long advert and you don't mention that you've been paid to talk about them. And you seem to be adding a lot of opinion on what is historically a rules channel. This all feels very quackalopey.

  7. The Fox Experiment is actually not selling at Gen Con, I only know this because I was a backer and they said in the latest update that since fulfillment won't even start until after Gen Con is over they won't sell it there

  8. To the risk of repeating myself, the designers' names (and illustrators') are sorely missing from that little info box. ^^'

  9. As someone who spent the majority of my adult life paying off my student loans, that always got a chuckle out of me. I loved that you gave a quick overview of all of these. Barcelona's at the top of my list! It's one of my favorite cities my wife and I have visited in the world and the game looks great too!

  10. Great to hear the old Watch it Played theme music in the intro. Talk about a nostalgia trip.

  11. Squishified 😃 that's a good one. I don't know about GenCon but I'm thinking it's time to start the countdown to Airecon 2024 "Stick, stick, sticky, sticky. stick, stick" 😉😃

  12. sigh Chaz… why do you gotta do this? The FOMO is ever increasing. Although I’m seeing positive signs of Fit to Print shipping soon!

  13. Lol that stupid laugh track was funny the first time, annoying the next few times, then that random one at the end got me again lol good comedic timing and great writing once again. I enjoy how you present these, it has that exciting mysticism element to it that makes the mere description feel like you're going on an adventure. Well done

  14. Maybe we're looking at different games, Chaz, but everything I've seen about Expeditions seems to indicate that it is indeed a game about making hats.

  15. Great video! Always chock-full of great info!

  16. This is one of the best lists I've watched, thank you!

  17. I don't know Larry's stance on Portals.

  18. Ahhhh so stoked you you to play Last Light Chaz!! I tried to make a game that you won’t need to component proponent for! Muhaha

  19. And there you have it, Chaz Marler, the board game king of segue🤠👍🏽

  20. That laugh sound clip reminded me of the classic "Wilhelm Scream". Will we someday be referring to the "Chaz Chuckle"? The "Mirth of Marler"? 😀

  21. I ordered 3 games from this list. Great job!!!!…..oh yea and I kick started Last Light.

  22. How about Legendary Encounters: The Matrix? I need it to be good. It's the only game with that theme/property.

  23. well made video! really good stuff. many of the games look very interesting
