  1. Mechanical Beast gives me So You've Been Eaten vibes, and when treating a living(?) creature as a jungle gym, I can't not think of Shadow of the Colossus–which has sort of its own board game interpretation in the lovely little 1v1 Skulk Hollow!

  2. I've been trying to buy Welcome To for someone for about 2 years and every time I look for it there are a ton of expansions but the base game is constantly out of stock everywhere. Agh!

  3. 6Nimmt! Is not German for “take 6” it’s German for “6 takes it” as in the person who places the 6th card in a row takes the row of 5 cards.

    The English version by the same publisher is called Take 5

  4. I was surprised Cascadia didn't make anyone's list!

  5. Stop stop stop. 7:51 immediate stop. Who says crunchy and then push a pear into the frame? PEARS ARE ENJOYABLE WHEN THEY ARE SOFT you barbarian! Thank you for your reconsideration, we may continue the video now

  6. Rushed to grab Heat before too many people saw this ep!!

  7. For big groups I would add Feed the Kraken and Challengers !

  8. I gasped at fire in the hole. It looks like loads of fun!

  9. I Hate the card system of gloomhaven. i hate everything about it. you can't plan with it. it is also your HP. It is almost completely reliant on luck if you can even do what you want. nothing tactical about it. i dont understand why it is the nr. 1 game.

  10. Really looking forwards to this video. All the games you review are cool but these ones seem like I could actually get people to play them without the usual threats of violence, cough cough Hansa Teutonica cough

  11. I would love to see recommendations for us solo gamers as well!

  12. So glad to see crokinole getting the love! One of my earliest memories is playing crokinole with my grandpa. Years later when dad was in a nursing home, we got a crokinole board for him at Christmas so my kids could play with their grandpa too. After dad passed, we left the board at the home, for other grandparents and grandkids to share. Thanks SUSD crew, for giving this game some of the good press it deserves. It's a Canadian staple.

  13. So YouTube people
    Give me your top 3 games of this year which aren't over 50 quid

    Social deduction,
    Area control
    Die rolling with some betting and combat factors.
    Party game

    Cheers

  14. Inhuman Conditions is slated to be back in stock soon, December 2022!

  15. I really like that SU&SD do not just recommend the newest and latest games…. older games like Skull and Inis… they are still worth spreading the word about. Love your channel.

  16. Appreciate that y'all gave me something to send to the parents! They never quite understand what I mean when I say I like board games

  17. Would love 2 see you lads as they call them in your area in an MMA match…sanctioned or not aka LOCKED IN A cage for 3 rounds minimum to beat down your opponent….some call it human chess as well

  18. If you're considering Welcome To (it's great!) you should seriously consider Welcome to the Moon! It's similar but with 8 distinct boards and a campaign that can string them together. I've been playing with a large group (using two copies to support 12 players) and everyone's had a great time.

  19. oh, with how shortly you talk about then, when you said links, i thought you meant to a review.

  20. The best gift to get someone who says they don’t like games would probably be something’s besides a game…

  21. At 15:14 Tom does the gnome sound. If that doesn't showcase how excited he is for the game he is recommending, I don't know what will.

  22. I love your Christmas videos but I urge you to release them earlier
    Shipping lengths etc

  23. Cheers guys, just spent over £200 on board games and it's not even 7am. 10/10 would recommend

  24. Damn… I REALLY loved that really quick montage of a few funny SU&SD review moments set to cozy acoustic music… it actually shocked me how much emotion that made me feel. I love this funny gang, and I would truly enjoy a video-length montage of "SU&SD Best Moments"

  25. The planet is called Arrakis! grumble grumble..

  26. There is a sequel to The Search for Planet X???? Is The Search for Lost Species actually available for purchase?

  27. Which is the best of the Back To The Future games that were released in recent years?

  28. I just love all you guys! Thank your for this video and I wish you all happy holidays!

  29. That Frosthaven box in the background though…

  30. Games for big nerds, now that's a category!😄

  31. ..has three players in a box.. you don't actually go into the box.. thanks for that bit of info😆😅

  32. Some amazing recommendations as always… all the best for Christmas SU&SD !!

  33. Akropolis is perfect on the list but a Nerd's game? For us it's really been an 8+! 🙂 And Scout is now widely available, at least in the UK. Thanks for the video!

  34. 6 nimmt! is now called Take 5! I believe. At least that's what my copy is called. And yes, it's a really fun game, easy to explain and plays quickly 🙂

  35. 8:20 Your Dune review was the first SU&SD video I ever saw. If Quinns in a wet suit hadn't been enough to keep me watching then Matt in a sleeping bag sealed the deal.

  36. Glad I picked some of these up at PAX! It was so good to see y’all there!

  37. this might be one of the greatest gaming xmas shopping list videos ever. what a great collection of games!

  38. I found Dune Imperium to be much better the second time around, for some reason.

  39. I really enjoy the videos with the whole crew in them. You all have great chemistry, and this combined with your 200th podcast episode just filled me with so much joy listening to you all discuss and argue like you all actually enjoy each others company.

    Two Small Quibbles though: Calling Jaws of the Lion a D&D light game, I think it sets people up for disappointment if they are thinking there is going to be much of any role playing. I absolutely adore Gloomhaven and JOTL, but I love it for the card play and tactical crunch.
    For crokinole, I know its expensive and you were probably looking for the best board for the lowest price, but I wonder if you could have worked with Muzzies or another independent craftsmen shop that focuses on crokinole boards to send more people to these smaller companies.

    I am sure you all did your best and have the best intentions but just a couple thoughts.

    Otherwise, I just ordered 4 of these games via those links you provided, and put a couple more on the wishlist because, surprise surprise the SU&SD effect has happened and a lot of these are sold out.
