  1. Creative way to put it, board games are definitely not just for kids. 🙂

    My team and I came up with a card game, Sad Piggies, simulation of how pigs plots their preferred suicide deaths to avoid the slaughterhouse, which potentially falls into the category "not for kids" for some, but it's not really as morbid as it sounds. Sad Piggies is now available on Kickstarter, will be happy that you can check us out!

  2. Somehow the option to translate subtitles isn't there, which is quite a shame, especially in this video. Perhaps you'd make it available, so more people in czech republic could watch it?

  3. Shut up and sit down, every time you review a boardgame you talk about it like it's your favorite. What are your top five that you've reviewed would you say?

  4. A tabletop channel- but with good camera presence. New subscriber.

  5. I just wanted to see why Quinns was wearing eyeliner again…

  6. Great, you just scared off anyone who was actually considering getting into table top games.

  7. That's a pretty rad rendition of the Super Mario Land theme ya got there

  8. Hahaha America isn’t Canada. Perfect dig

  9. Love the Super Mario tune in the background.

  10. I think you should have addressed another point- board games are expensive. Which is generally fair, but there are also a lot of relatively unexpensive games to play with.

  11. Couple of years late, but thanks to this channel I have recently been cultivating a love of board games, starting with Mystery of the Abbey and Dead of Winter. Also looking to get Fury of Dracula, but that's a particularly elusive beast at this point in time…
    Anyway, thanks to you boys for making me fall in love with board games – can't wait to see what other games come out down the line.

  12. I don't play boardgames (yet) and this is my favourite youtube channel. Well done guys!

  13. Why mention Queen Victoria, when you could mention Queen Elisabeth, also know as the Virgin Queen?

  14. I first discovered SU&SD on Vimeo. The video about dealing with annoying players was brilliant.

  15. Sorry. Can you please not show Canada when you say America? That hurts, and Americans will be confused about where they are and how many states make up the US.

  16. Said America showed the Canadian flag lol.

    A video to teach people to game. Very good idea!

  17. When he says the USA a map displays Canada. This is because as far as the British are concerned the USA is that little bit that broke off from British North America and became independent back in the day. Canada is the main place in North America, still ruled by the Queen. When these guys need to host a convention they do so in Canada knowing that all the Americans will happily meet them there, as it's such a beautiful country and a cool place to be.

  18. This is one of my favorites videos on youtube

  19. Is this… an elevator music version of The Super Mario Land theme?

  20. What is the name of the background music at 5:20? It's from a video game, but I cannae remember which one.

  21. Monopoly is the best game … for never wanting to play a game withe dice again …

  22. "…the table, as a medium, can be used for *anything*…"

    Oh really? 😉

  23. the mario music here reall works, i love your select

  24. Hey Stratford! I didn't know SUSD was filmed from my hood!

  25. Lol. If they were in Victoria now (in Australia) they'd be in lockdown due to stupid kids (and brainless adults) spreading covid.

  26. "Board games give you something to… Hold"
    Haha yes, I definately have friends in real life who like board games and don't just play through Tabletop Sim…
    Edit: Shit this video is meant to help me get my friends into them isn't it

  27. I wonder what games would be used if this video were remade now? Maybe a Wingspan for the excentrics, a Terraforming Mars for the space opera, and a Secret Hitler for the simple hidden role game?

  28. IMO your Lawrence of Arabia costume was pretty authentic

  29. The one thing keeping me from getting into board games is my lack of friends

  30. that looks like the Olympic park in the background…..i work just down the road 🙂

  31. My main concern with starting a board game collection is that I'll might end up with games that are all more or less the same, like I might have 40 games at some point, but only 10 or so that bring a new concept whereas the rest might end up just being copies (hope that makes sense)

  32. Please make an updated version of this 😊 love it!

  33. You need to redo this with up to date games.

  34. I was finding it super hard to introduce modern boardgames to my best beloved cousin, but when I saw this videp olI knew that it is perfect and it was.

  35. 4:33 You were were making me think 'A Clockwork Orange", then a pear stole the show.

  36. Nice Bug Wars music at 2:54! idk if that is where it is from, but that is where I know that specific track from .

    Very unfortunate that the version I played on never allowed me to be the hoppers. I think it was glitched… 🙁 looking at you Armor Games.

  37. Would love to see an updated version of this video. It was great at the time, but some of the games (Archipelago, maybe Ladies and Gentlemen) maybe wouldn’t be the first choice to feature now?

  38. thanks. any plans to redo and this vid with better production quality? I was looking a good video to intro board games to people new and this was really good.

  39. Quinns looks amazing wearing eyeliner
    Video is good too
