  1. Great job as usual Chaz! I always like your "What's In Store" segment, because I feel too many game reviewers focus on what's out in the board game universe, but often fixate on games that are out of print, are currently unavailable or are being kickstarted or re-printed (maybe, in a year or so, or maybe two…). I for one appreciate the quick views of games I might actually find in local retail shops, so the next time I visit one, I might take a second look at a game that maybe isn't on the BGG Top 100 or isn't on the current Hot List. As much as I love those big chunky hot games, the staggeringly high price tags and lack of availability makes me annoyed at how much they are over-hyped.

  2. The Version Perversion segment is a great idea, definitely bring that one back!

  3. Love your delivery. Voice fluctuations are perfect. Enlightening and Informative. Perfect amount of humor. Very professional. Great job!

  4. Do you prefer Raccoon Tycoon over Lizard Wizard?

  5. Thank you for being our friend. Golden comment. What did you find down the road?

  6. Very nice. I did like the "version control" most. Thank you for this great video.

  7. Our Go Calendar store in the mall is permanent. It is nice when they have sales. I can't wait to get Unfathomable.

  8. Super chanel
    I learned numerous table games like monoply
    And now i play them with family and friends
    Thank you so much

  9. Excellent list and Happy New Year!

    For 2022, is there any chance you could do a review of Forbidden Bridge? That was a game from my childhood that I was very happy to see Hasbro's re-released.

  10. Thank you again for this video format! It's nice seeing things out now instead of 'in kickstarter' or 'out of print and impossible to get'.

  11. Post-apple-iptic, LOL! Don't think a Siri singularity is coming anytime soon.

  12. Thanks for highlighting The Goonies: Escape With One-Eyed Willy's Rich Stuff! We're excited for everyone to experience the surprises within. 💙

  13. I have the same shirt except mine is golden color as it should be.

  14. Unfathomable: 0

    Chaz: 4

    Apocalyptic: Hold my beer.

  15. who loves Sondheim? Picture Patty Lupone or Elaine Stritch singing this: "Here's to the games who play smart – Aren't they a Gas? – Reiner Knizia's Modern Art – or azul: with stained glass. – Another long TI4 play -More Kallax in the Parlor – Before you play, or Watch It played – One hosted by Chaz Marler – I'll drink to that! – And one for Marler!" (Second verse "Ladies who Lunch" from Company)

  16. I can't believe Rodney didn't get any points in your game of Lizard Wizard

  17. Wait does Chaz said "informative and destructional" [rewind] yeap xD

  18. Finally see someone mentioning Las Vagas, one of the first games I ever played and absolutely love it. Always hilarious when people try to mess with others and turn out blocking themselves. Definitely checking out the royale edition

  19. Happy New Year. Thank you to all of you at Watch It Played for making such informative and incredibly entertaining videos.

  20. Fitting shirt considering what happened today. RIP BW

  21. Great video as usual! Your Golden Girls shirt was appreciated. 😢

  22. Yet another great episode Chaz! I especially liked Version Control, because I love premium pieces. One nitpick that almost certainly won't impact you: you pronounced the McElroys as "mc-EL-roy" when it's really more like "MAC-el-roy". Like I said, small small thing in a great episode!

  23. I played telestrations last weekend with my friends, it was crazy fun, it was the game where we laughed the most all year.

  24. Really really love these videos! Happy to see what’s available and to hear about titles I never thought to look into. Happy New Years Chaz and crew!

  25. I love his stay golden shirt I have it and love it

  26. That game system for Robin Hood looks awesome. Not even remotely interested in the theme, but if they make it a scifi game count me in.

  27. Happy New Year Chaz. Magnate looks great. I might have to jump at it. Las Vegas looks like fun too.

  28. Chaz: We must prepare for the Applecalypse!

    Me: Uh…Don't you mean the Apocalypse?

    Chaz: Tell that to Sir Isaac Newton!

  29. Happy new year! Great video. I bought the other day a couple of board games thx to your reviews here in Chile :)!

  30. I appreciate the Golden Girls shirt as a nod to Betty White. Very nicely done.
