  1. What a jolly brilliant idea to have at festivals

  2. Brilliant partnership! Hitting FOMO hard that I missed the event! Looked like a wonderful atmosphere

  3. 4:33 sounds like you need to level up and head to a gaming convention ^_^

  4. If you like the idea of Camping & Board Games check out the Strange Games Festival in Sussex. My favourite camp game this year was Blood on the Clocktower 😀

  5. I loved this video! You have a great chemistry and your passion for the games and how they bring people together is totally infectious. I was laughing with joy to see it. Watching this was a great way to start my working week. Thank you!

  6. Thank you so much for this inspiring video. We are a boardgame Café in Hamburg, Germany and although everything is much more non-tenty around our place, we still get similar reactions when new gamers catch the beauty of the hobby. Having a whole weekend with this pure joy seems just perfect. And yeah – when Just One came out we thought „how come this game hasn’t been around for years?“

    Would love to hear more about the collection you took along for the festival. We knew and own all but one game mentioned in this video but maybe there are hidden gems?
    Our hidden gem is: „subtext“ and yes it should work in a tent as well. Our pitch; here is a game in which you draw and the worse you can draw the better. And everyone always reacts: „yeah, I’m in!“ Has worked in absolutely EVERY group at our place so please try it if you don’t know it yet.
    Greetings 🤘🏻

  7. this looks like so much fun, i wish my country had something like this

  8. I haven't even watched the video but this festival looks like the coolest thing ever: tons of cool things to do and people actually being social and not idiots.

  9. Great video and kudos for being such great ambassadors for the hobby. As someone who has taught and played hundreds and hundreds of games of Happy Salmon at conventions it would fit perfectly in this list and in your tent (and especially on those blankets outside).

  10. Meanwhile two states in Australia are still in lockdown.

  11. I once played Rhino Hero on a rooftop patio, we had to have three guys moving around the table to body block the wind.

  12. Dobble, or Spot It! over here is so much fun! My six and three year old can both play it against dad, and competitively. They love it. My three year old learned it by just watching me play against his big sis. We'd give him a card to "play" and he'd say "tree" and we'd tell him that's not on his card and one day he said "lips" and won the card and then won the next card and suddenly he got it! I was so proud.

    I adore Rhino Hero. I love pulling it out at conventions and watching people walking past slow their steps and eyes widen and they're in.

  13. Super content, great interaction between you two. Would love to see more of it!

  14. I have to admit, I only know about Dobble because of Matt Parker's video about it.

  15. Man… that looks like both an AMAZING festival, and an amazing attraction you created as well. JEALOUS!

  16. Okay, I’ve followed Dr Hope’s Sick Notes for a little while and this festival sounds brilliant!
    I’ve never heard most of these and now I definitely want to check out the games you two mentioned! ❤️

  17. Jon, please do more videos like this one. It was not long enough for me to get tired, nooooo! It was fresh and fun to watch, and was content of absolute good quality! Thank you and Dr. Hope!

  18. This is so wholesome. I miss getting together with all kinds of people. Hope we can go back to that soon.

  19. I would have thought outside Happy Salmon would have been a hit too.

  20. me and my best friend straight up bought tickets for wildfire because of this video 🤣

  21. Ah the Brit’s, weird and also very relatable for some strange reason.

  22. Thank you Jon and Serena from everyone at Camp Wildfire; it was an absolute blast! And for putting this video together too, which captures what I love so much about doing the board game lounge; seeing people sharing fun moments. See you soon for the top 5 catheter collab 🙂
