  1. Any thoughts on any of the following games.. HeatDistilledCosmoctopusSea Salt and PaperThrough the AgesSkull KingLe Havre Modern ArtBeen eyeing these, but not sure which one(s) I should go for!

  2. Very Rare Vee-Bug Cameo was indeed a surprise.

  3. So many cool games! Thanks for the awesome games! 🙂

  4. I pre-ordered from Capstone and got it the Saturday of Essen. But I live in Ohio where Capstone makes it's home 🙂

  5. Excellent stuff as always Chaz. I don't attend Essen as to expensive but am happy with the cost of Airecon and UKGE.

  6. I am among those who was lucky enough to pick up Ark Nova expantion!! I tried it yesterday, it is really really good!

  7. I just played TM the dice game last night. It hits different but damn is it a fun game I highly recommended

  8. Looking forward to Fun-A-Con! Gonna be a blast!

  9. Unless I fit game boxes like Professor Meg, I will not evacuate my house for any game.

    I'm so happy for Harvest coming back in that cozy, friendly theme, btw. So happy.

  10. Got Knarr and played a couple games, pretty cool! Except when it comes to some of the colours they chose. 😛

  11. Hey Chaz, this year was my first visit to Essen and I loooooved it 😉 I was there on both Thursday and Friday and was able to pick up 2 copies of Marine Worlds (a friend asked to pick one up for him) and it looks amazing. Going to try it out this Friday.

  12. Guest appearance from Vee-bug! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

  13. I have not visited Essen yet, but luckily Portal Games is releasing the Ark Nova expansion here in Poland in just a few weeks! Already pre-ordered 😁

  14. I was at Essen, but didn't pick it up. I already have it on pre-order from Capstone… and I was out of luggage space. 🙃

  15. Some very great games on that list and also I agree with your opinion about what makes a good legacy game. Great video!

  16. We've never come close to beating a boss in Lords of Ragnarok. Every victory has been one of the other conditions, and not always after Ragnarok starts. In fact, I would add that anyone who spends too much time pursuing fighting monsters, ends up losing due to falling behind on the other priorities.

  17. Most of these games seem very "kickstarter bloated" the setup for some of these looks like an endeavor in it of itself.
