  1. I wish board games were more popular these days!I also wish I had friends to play board games with.

  2. I KNEW it was Citadel! Haha. I want it too, I didn't know they added those new roles!

  3. World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King is the game I ended up picking up this week. I haven’t played it yet but the component quality is out of this world! Can’t wait to play it!

  4. Let’s Summon Demons is so much fun. Very simple to play and full of laughter.

    Another great episode with lots of games I want to play

  5. Was hoping to see a restock of that My First Adventure game. Cause I’m a total sucker for Choose Your Own Adventure type stuff. No such luck.

  6. Not invoke buyer's remorse, but there's actually a newer version of Citadels from this year :c

  7. Lizard Wizard looks interesting, but does it sound as amazing as the music from the band "King Gizzard & The LIzard Wizard" ? I think not. <3 (also yes that is a real band, and yes their music is awesome)

  8. Sharky Tacks? Was it Shark Tacks? No, the detective game?

  9. The elf with the shelf 😂 Love me some Chaz humour 👍

  10. "[…] will also catch your eye…
    of newt"

    Great script today! (and great all round episode in general)

  11. "Also includes solo rules for solitary play that I was left to discover on my own" -PURE GOLD JERRY (aka Chaz)!

  12. I guessed the Pandemic game because when talking about the Solo mode he said "I later discovered on my own"

  13. I totally guessed your purchase!! Love all the videos you do.

  14. Really love and appreciate this series!

  15. “…which I was left to discover on my own…” as a primarily solo gamer, I’ve had recurring nightmares of this phrase…thanks Rodney, thanks. But great series Chaz!

  16. Chaz your neat too! Miss ya buddy and thanks for the shout out!!!!

  17. 11:52 got a solid laugh out of me. I too enjoy quoting Rodney Smith when applicable

  18. Thanks for the vid! A lot of great and intriguing board games for every board gamer!
    11:52 — Insert "Pointing Rick Dalton" meme here. #hesaidthething

  19. Anybody know where I can find those trnsparent tokens for Micromacro?

  20. Best segue ever I laughed out loud.
    You are the best Chaz.

  21. Love to see Zimbabwe on the list. Splotters best game imo.

  22. Amazing video! I love the segment where you show a store’s actual shelves.

  23. Love ur jokes! My fav this time is the spanish word you will learn playing uno. Makes sense tho!

  24. Chaz successfully conveys my existential, mortal angst within a board game video; he may very well be the greatest philosophy of our time.

    Speaking being the best of our time, we should all commission someone to go back and count all of Chaz's alliteration on YouTube – I think we may find he is the most alterative person alive on our planet.

    Two consummate titles I, myself, wish I could have! ;D thank you for the wonderful videos!

  25. Man, my local BiMart doesn’t stock board games like that.

  26. Oh wow, a Bi-Mart reference??? Only place I ever saw those was when I lived in Oregon. Did you stop at Grocery Outlet on the way home?

  27. Yeah . It's insane what gets released. It's like video games. Makes me wonder how the heck all these people are making their money back from making these games. People only have so much money (and time), and games are not cheap.

  28. Kokopelli has really peaked my interest. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

  29. still waiting for Chaz to solve the Pair of Docks Paradox

  30. Do you ever get free games from publishers to advertise for them?

  31. Another great episode of BGBG Chaz! I was considering getting that expansion for Villainous myself, but somehow can't stomach being Cruella De Vil. I'll take over Agrabah or topple Olympus without qualms, but I just can't hurt puppies!

  32. This series has been informal and these games have piqued my interest. Thanks for showing us around and I’m glad you were able to get Perfectly Wretched too. Pete is a favorite Villain of mine to play as, but it could be due to the old fashion art style shown on the cards.
