  1. March 2023. Battletech kickstarter. I know Chaz will be very interested.

  2. The sparkle in your eye when you said "Stab, stab, stab" really warmed my heart. Oh wait, it's warm because I'm bleeding. Oh god. Why, Chaz? I was enjoying your alliteration so much. Must frolic in Frosthaven before I…

  3. Stoked to see Vs Systems 2pcg represented here, great game!

  4. Another ridiculously good video by Watch It Played. Pshhh… ridiculous.

  5. F1 board game Pole Position is now in Kickstarter…can you tell us something about this game? Looks awesome!

  6. What game is shown at 12:50? This does not look like weather machine. Is that an early proto type version of the game?

  7. What a cool game Unconscious Minds looks to be.

  8. I think it is Mike from DT who loves Dwellings. I'd like to play sometime.

  9. Dwellings of Eldervale may also be getting a bump as Cardboard Alchemy pushes out details and does media content for the upcoming Andromeda's Edge campaign coming at the end of January, and is an evolution on the design of the Dwellings and also from Luke Laurie and Peter Vaughn.

  10. "it's like prom night all over again" I howled in laughter. Lol well done!

  11. Oh. Goody! A new episode of 'the climbers' 🙂

  12. I'm stoked for Dwellings of Eldervale!

  13. So what was the first board displayed for weather machine as it didn’t look too much like weather machine.

  14. Great video, Chaz! Thanks for the heads up about Dice Manor!!!

  15. I think Freud was a Neurologist, not a Urologist! 🤣🤣

  16. Another EXCELLENT script from Ollie & Stewart!!! And Chaz, you rocked it, too! <3

  17. A couple of people at my FLGS started meeting regularly for VS 2PCG and I have to say it's fairly interesting. I like that I don't have to chase rares in sets, but I'm also terrible at deck making. 😅

  18. Great video! Lots of cool games that I want to buy but I’m not allowed to purchase any more games until after Christmas 😢😢

  19. Dwellings of Eldervale has become my favorite game. I cant wait for Andromeda's Edge

  20. I'm receiving Weather Machine this week, I'm very excited, already tried an online version of it and it is gooood.

  21. sorry if this has been asked before, but what is the data that makes a game increase in "hotness"? is it BGG page views or forum activity?

  22. Who sat there looking at Azul and thought: "You know what this game needs…Tiles that look even more edible!"?

  23. I honestly can’t believe there’s so many board games out there…

  24. I knew about Unconscious Mind before it launched but missed my chance to get in on it when i hesitated to back it 😫

  25. You influenced me to buy Dwellings of Eldervale 😆

  26. Unconscious mind is the first game I have ever backed on kickstarter. I am so excited

  27. Everyone needs a copy of Dwellings of Eldervale! This game is amazing! Gives me the most warm fuzzies🤘

  28. I say neither. I pronounce it 'hexagonal'.

  29. Fun list, Chaz!

    It is a bit humbling to have a couple of my BGG posts in my role as the Breaking Games BGG guy make this video.

    Since Dwellings of Eldervale has not been in the top 30 on the BGG Hotness for a bit, I am going to assume that the consistant chatter overall comboed with thousands of copies selling in recent weeks got Dwellings of Eldervale on this list. Of course, it could be that I tend to type out Dwellings of Eldervale many times a day. 😛

    Jokes (and crafty marketing tips to use when you don't have things to sell atm) aside. Thanks for doing what you do!
