  1. The shortcut to play the game without reading the rulebook (hopefully🙏😍). Hope you enjoy it, me (Stella) and Tarrant love this game!

  2. Really good video. I can’t wait to get this game tomorrow 🙂

    I was reading the rules and noticed two things that are different from your teach. Firstly, ‘Scoring Connected Buildings’ states that ‘buildings are only considered connected if there is an uninterrupted road between them’ (page 20). Secondly, to score excitement you only need to have at least one circle in a row to score it (page 18).

    P.S. I watched your Hadrian’s Wall teach and it was fantastic. Thank you.

  3. Great video…this is the best "how-to" I've been able to locate for this game. Thank you!!!

  4. Thank you for another clear how to video! I’ve heard great things about this one so glad to understand how it all works. Looks interesting

  5. This is a fantastic How to Play. So clear and concise, really brilliant work. Every flows really well. Thanks so much

  6. Just picked this game up and this is a brilliant rules teach. Tarrant definitely has talent for teaching games. Thank you.

  7. This channel has the most awkward moments in boardgame channels, and I love it more for it!! Sending more geekiness and love!! <3 -From Pao (Laguna, Philippines)

  8. Hi there! Thanks for the great tutorial. I'm ready to start playing now.

    As I found the deluxe break room (at 22:38) a bit confusing I did some further research (rule dive) and there is a mistake in the scoring here.

    The "valid tour route" is wrong. Only uninterrupted roads can connect buildings. So it can not pass through another building. So for example, if the deluxe break room had 5 separate roads with 5 separate merch buildings directly attached to it, then it would count as 15 points. But right now, in this example in the video, only 3 points should be awarded as there is only 1 merch shop attached via an uninterrupted road to the break room.

  9. Thank you so much for the clear explanation

  10. You guys are so good clear and awesome, thank you👍👌

  11. This blows DiLisio's rules explanation out of the water. Probably the best i've seen on youtube.

  12. Looking forward to breaking this out today. Great run-through. Thank you! ❤️

  13. I appreciate you guys going the extra mile and covering the solo mode, I feel like most tutorials wouldn't have bothered. 🙂

  14. Great how-to-play video as always. At 14:59 do you gain 1 coin for each Food Stand (not 2 coin)?

  15. 23:18 you should have scored 14 points for your Excitement track. Points are awarded for the bottom-most row where you have drawn at least one circle.

  16. Is the solo mode really difficult? That seemed like a lot of threat to gain in 1 dice roll with the AI. (I've only just discovered roll and writes and have bought a few basic ones to start with but I'd love to try this game out eventually. It looks really fun!)
