  1. Ooo buyers guide? Sweet! I was thinking of "field sampling" random patches of a store photo and investigating/researching. But recommending good games you recommend is good

  2. I don't think kickstarters should be on this list. By the time we hear about them, they may never reach retail shelves.

  3. Ooh creature comforts is a game for me! Haven't heard of it before!

  4. I am very excited about the new game …. that I am already forgetting the name of. (Had to look up.) Casting Shadows. It looks like Pokemon which holds a very special place in my heart. I played Pokemon BEFORE it was cool!!!! These hottest board game videos are awesome. My only complaint is that your puppy needs to make another appearance. As I've already proven, my memory is pretty bad, but I remember him being a cute little old guy. I have a senior rescue chihuahua who is really showing the world how to enjoy retirement. She loooves her naps. Anyway, bring your lovely little dog back on the show! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. The real treasure is the Bardmulch we made along the way.

  6. I credit Chaz with getting First Empires onto this list by highlighting it in his earlier Buyer's Guide video.😎👍

  7. Perhaps it would be interesting to do a top ten "Momenten" list restricted to games that are actually retail available or at least in general circulation.
    Seeing which kickstarter have finished or just delivered is interesting but serves little purpose.
    One of the main things I like from this is understanding why some older games or less popular games pop up in the hotness, when that occasionally comes happens.

  8. Love the slightly veiled pokemon joke…. Gary Oak

  9. A covered box! The tension! the longing! You monster Chaz!

  10. Hardcastle and McCormick? Add in Simon and Simon, and Scarecrow and Mrs. King, please …

  11. Oh look! A new episode of the clim……..ok,ok Momenten.😉

  12. First Empires components look really good. I wish more companies used dice like that.

  13. Dead reckoning and shipping delays….open goal for a treasure to deliver timing puns in a timely way

  14. Great video! 👍The wrapped package was quite the touch.

  15. Congrats to Solar 175. Seems like a really cool concept and I love the voting box that changes end game scoring!

  16. Played Creature Comforts on Sunday, a nice game where you have to plan using incomplete information.

  17. Thumbs up for Bohnanza! One of the best card games out there 🙂

  18. Wait, i thought it was “mom in ten”? You know, we’ll see mom in 10 minutes? I guess momentum makes more sense…

  19. I hope Chaz could will start a gift wrapping service for board games during the Christmas holiday. The Dark Tower game at the end looked well wrapped, and I take he could do a video one day of wrapping all of those board games on his shelves to make it look like we'll visiting the board game present store.

    P.S. I hope he does well beating Rodney at Dark Tower, since he did a tutorial for it earlier in time. I think the hint of "going to play the board game" and a tutorial for it already on the same channel could have hinted we Chaz played the game with after he did this video.

  20. Ah, just looking at all those games make us impatient! Cheers!
