  1. 126,000 likes with less than 8,000 views lol

  2. Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man, Magic The Gathering, Netrunner and now Mindbug! Super-hero, actor and boardgames designer, the dude really can do it all! (I jest I jest, thank you on the suggestions and thank you for your hard work this year)!

  3. Ra! Ra! Auction game! Egypt's greatest Reiner theme! Spent all my sun discs on a funeral.

  4. 🗣️ WRITING NUMBERS IN THE DESERT SAND, El Nombreeeeeeeee

  5. By the way, 'Hans im Glück' is a German fairy tale, which means 'Hans in Luck'.

  6. One more that I think should be here, RAILROAD INK!!! Possibly the best roll and write

  7. Gorillas are members of the great ape family.

  8. I’ve sadly stopped giving/asking for games as gifts because I’ve realized my family just don’t enjoy playing them… last time I was at my brother’s place I saw all of the games I got them in the closet, still shrink wrapped…

  9. props for the nana love! It's absolutely fantastic!

  10. Great energy in this one, gents. Lots of fun. I now want to buy all these games!! Well done!

  11. So nice to see a bunch of games I've never heard of being recommended by SUSD. Their appreciation for party games is something that you don't get from all the people covering mostly Kickstarter dungeon crawlers.

  12. 11:10 [pushes up spectacles]
    well actually, while there is a tradition in English of distinguishing apes (such as gorillas) as apart from monkeys, in a stricter phylogeny sense Apes are better thought of as a subset of Monkeys—making Tom technically correct. This is reflected in German by the fact that "Affen" can be translated either as "Monkeys" or "Apes", though "Apes" is more specifically rendered in German as "Menschenaffen (lit. "Human Monkeys")".

    A fun consequence of this is that all humans—as a subset of apes—are scientifically also monkeys, so any man with at least one nibling is technically a monkey's uncle.

  13. Help I saw this video and immediately bought Trek (for myself, not as a present)

  14. what's with the disrespect for el grande?? didnt spent any time talking about what the game is about at all, spent more time how to pronounce the publisher's name. didnt even bother to show photos of the new reprint. anyone watching the video would think it's just some insignificant old game.

  15. I got really confused over the nail polish………………….. I personally think that Bohnanza is the best gift game ever.

  16. Tom said "aminals" so seamlessly and naturally that I briefly forgot how that word is actually spelled.

  17. I also grew up on the wise teachings of El Nombre. I still follow the lesson of don't fall into holes, go AROUND the problem

  18. Don't Get Got? Is that what happened to the Quinns hand puppet?

  19. Get them Heat, pedal to the metal! If you like spending twice the msrp and giving your money to an ebay scalper, that is.

  20. Can’t recommend Moon if you actively have to change the rules as written to play it.

  21. I remember the days when SU&SD used to hate Reiner Knizia games…

  22. 11:06 um, MONKEYS have tails, do you see a tail on that gorilla? no, because the artist knew that gorillas are APES. APES NOT MONKEYS!

  23. Oh, I’ve kept seeing Cat in the Box advertised at me or on shelves, and it’s definitely my aesthetic, but I’ve wondered whether it was fun or not. So, thanks for the recommendation!!

  24. Interested to know why you picked Ra over Zoo vardis?

  25. All my friends and family are going to get a copy of Sea salt & paper this Christmas. The original Bombyx edition though, not the Pandasaurus edition with crappy card quality.

  26. 22:42 parent's face when their kid talks about a TikTok thing they're very excited about

  27. aww i just love these guys so much. happy holidays everybody~

  28. Question: do you guys play bridge (trick taking game)? It seems like a card game that would appeal to modern board gamers so….just wondered.

  29. We played Don’t Get Got at a wedding as a little side activity during downtime. Worked great, except for one table (my board gaming group) which resorted to complete silence and intensely staring each other in the eyes, until they gave up and did their tasks elsewhere 😄

  30. The German term „Glück“ could mean either „luck“ or „happiness“ (or both) depending on the context.

  31. Always great fun and great recommendations 😀 thank you <3

  32. I really wanted Moon but its not available in my country until next year :/. I had the cat in the box game recently recommended to me

  33. I was NOT expecting to be reminded of el nombre ever again

  34. Tom doesn't know who Gandalf is?! Tom strikes me as a man who would enjoy watching the Lord of the Rings

  35. Don't get got! is the most SUSD-type game there is. 😂

  36. "Hans im Glück" (engl. Hans in Luck) is a fairytale by the Grimm brothers

  37. Don't Get Got! Christmas edition is great fun to play over the Christmas period and will fit in an average sized stocking!
