  1. Professor Evil is one of my fav and a hidden gem!! Totally easy to solo, no reason why they didn't put that on the box. Love the art, it's quick, and a game can go easy to hard fast. The expansion makes it harder for those who prefer that (each time token gives the professor a full redo on his turn O_O) and the two extra characters add complexity to the game as well (one is Randomness and her rolls can go well or bad for you). But even without the expansion, one can make the game harder by adding an extra 'black clock' on any rolled professor dice.

  2. Feed the kraken is brilliant! BRILLIANT

  3. You might want to hire a new autonomous hand to throw and slide you board games. I heard that the one from The Adams Family is currently looking for work.

  4. We have a review copy of Farmerstein to play, unfortunately it's 3-players and we do 2-players. Will have to see if their is a good variant that would work at 2.

  5. Nice to get some game recommendations that are different… I missed a few of these!

  6. Can’t say I ever expected to hear a Sabaton reference on this channel. Didn’t know they had a board game either.

  7. No games with solo mode. Sad for us people who have no friends. 🙁

  8. Love the videos Chaz, you always have so much energy. Off topic, where did you get that Groot poster?

  9. Glad to see Night of the Mummy getting some love! Also should say 2022 for the year, not 2020.

  10. ROFL! Chaz and Veebug: Architects of Hilarity in the Citadel of Excellent Information! (Thanks for the great videos!)

  11. Farmerstein looks like fun but I can’t find anyone selling it in the UK. Any idea when it may hit our shores??

  12. Oh my word, Chaz, that box catch! I mean, I thought Rodney had a corner on that market. I thought nobody could outdo his box flip. But your box catch….I mean, it just revolutionized the industry of board gaming television. I am in awe to have watched such history in the making. Make sure Rodney watches this video. 😉

  13. I absolutely LOVE your comment about describing any game or trip to the grocery store. That is so dang true! Great insight!!! 🙂 That game does sound interesting, but maybe a little too scary for me. 🙂

  14. I will always love the bloopers. Makes my day.

  15. Stop! My wallet can't take all this 😨

  16. Who is your mysterious helper? 🙂 Your wife? Your daughter? That Jimmy character who mysteriously went missing?

  17. The new edition of Successors is gorgeous. The trick is getting 3+ players together for the purposes of properly knifing each other in the back and taking each others stuff.

  18. That's neat about the game where you can combine the two games or just play them separately (Night of Mummy and …Vampire something.) That reminds me of the Century Road games. 🙂

  19. Who's gonna break it to Rodney that Chaz just performed the most visually impressive spinning box toss on the channel? Then again, Rodney always gets his on the first take and Chaz strikes me as a 4+ takes kind of guy…

  20. We love the variety of games and all the fun you packed into this video! Chaz, you're adorable! 🙂 Teej & Ben (Well, only Teej said the adorable part.)

  21. Hi)
    Is here anybody who understand the theme and can help me with a copyright question?
    Can I legally use characters from copyrighted materials in my youtube channel in a board game, that I created? For example smurfs. Would it be legal to create a board game with smurfs material(they are not printed, I will find pictures in Google and draw them by my hand) and I'm not going to monetize the video. Or just a fact that I will call some characters ,,smurfs" is copyright violation?

  22. As far as IP goes I am surprised MTV’s celebrity death match hasn’t been made into a board game.

  23. Will we get the blooper reel for the failed game box catches from the beginning?

  24. The offscreen handoff continues to be my favorite parts of Chaz's segments!

  25. Great video! Very informative as always.

  26. "Like an unsecured grocery list that floats away in the hot sandy breeze", reminds me of A Canticle for Leibowitz

  27. I need to hire my own little hands for videos. 🙂

  28. Nova Luna has 2 designers on the box because Uwe took the main mechanism for it from another game and felt that he owes it to the original designer. It’s written in the rule book, Corne van Moorsel did not work on the game with Uwe.

  29. 0:59 "…incubated into their routes…" – I guess the players have to hatch a new scheme to move their buses around the city? 🙂

  30. Usurp the King = War of Whispers + Secret Hitler?

  31. How does Northstar Games already have an expansion available before their game is even released?

  32. Is Rear Window a reimplementation of Mysterium? I love it! Immediately hitting my wish list.

  33. Next video on how to play axis allies global1940

  34. Excellent stuff as always Chaz, nothing grab me this time around but I suppose that's a good thing 🙂

  35. Flying Frog Productions still hasn’t delivered their kickstarter from 2019. They claim hurdles that other companies seem to navigate with class. Strange how one maker can’t get things done while others have virtually no issue.

  36. More videos like this! There's a few on here I wasn't aware of and have now added to my radar. Thanks! (Or if you ask my wallet – Darn you!)
