  1. Hello, would anybody out there be able to suggest a sensible and exciting game for me and my 10 year old son. Just entering the world of board games and am blown away by the options these days.. any help greatly received..

  2. Thank you for continuing to be Paula, Paula. I, for one, don't want to live in a world where Paula Deming is no longer Paula Deming.

  3. Wonder Book gets my vote for the most creative game I've seen in a while. Using a pop up as terrain for minis is brilliant.

  4. Love the channel! You all give me tons of great gift ideas for birthdays and whatnot. Keep up the awesome content!

  5. Top 10 Paula Demings gaining popularity, presented by board games.

  6. Had no idea it was a new thing, but I ordered Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition off Amazon last week and got the Collector's Edition with dual-layer boards and storage trays. Had no idea I was getting that till it showed up.

  7. Great video! There are some very intriguing games on that list. Definitely interested in Wonderbook.

  8. Did you just said the hard earned profits of capitalists? Wtf….

  9. Unsettled – reminds me of Paula's play of Dead Space. Is there a long game over/death animati – I mean, Paula NEVER dies in game. Pro gamer Paula. 😀

  10. Thanks for the overview. Most of the games all have chart position 91 in November ?

  11. I'd highly recommend people who play Unsettled skip the first planet and go straight to the second one. The first planet was a miserable learning experience, the second planet is an absolute delight.

  12. Keep an eye out for “foster the meeple”! They are going to be there and seem like such wonderful people.

  13. Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition is an interesting game. I recently received Lost Ruins of Arnak and I wonder which of these two games I will prefer to play most.

  14. I am still waiting for my mythic tier of hero’s quest in the mail. 🥺

  15. Unsettled is awesome, best coop experience of my life

  16. So, when Paula subs in for Chaz in the monthly Momenten, should we call it MoDEMten?
    I'll see myself out.

  17. I love the idea of a pop-up book as a gameboard!

  18. Where can we order the Aries expedition grade???

  19. I still have to finish the 1st trilogy and now they are launching a 3rd, let's hope I can get all of them soon.

  20. Unsettled absolutely SLAPS! So much fun! 🙌🏼

  21. I'm going to keep a spider tile from my copy of Hive in my Skyrim box. It wouldn't seem like an authentic Bethesda product without bugs in it.

  22. Paula forgot it was recently renamed Momentwelve so we’d like to get two more games please and thank you.

  23. If I have learnt anything form the success of Hegemony, is that no one in the board game world knows how to pronounce "Hegemony" ;).

    Love your work, Paula (please do not ban me‼)

  24. Disappointed that the pen-ultimate game was not a roll-and-write.

  25. We're so excited that Brian Boru made the list. Glad you're all enjoying it! Great video Paula (don't tell Chaz).

  26. Make a board game about KPOP! Lolll XDDDD

  27. I have to miss PAX Unplugged this year 🙁 Fantastic convention, I'm sure it is going to be a blast, I look forward to hearing what goes on this year. I had the honor of meeting Chaz at the first one

  28. Just when we thought we couldn't like Paula any more than we already do……

  29. The idea of using a pop-up book as a gameboard is brilliant!

  30. I used to play board games, like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

  31. Popup book idea looks interesting. Unsettled was one I got to try at a our local board game group a few weeks ago and it was quite fun.

  32. Strange to hear Chaz's words coming out of someone else's mouth. He should do it more often =)

  33. Paula could talk about the dial up internet sounds from the 90s and make it sound interesting.

  34. I really hope I can run into Paula at PAX!

  35. Missed opportunity to give another title to MomenTen (yet once more!).

  36. nice video to put me on par with what is trending! Thanks Paula

  37. A new episode of 'the Climbers' with Cha……Paula! 😯😉🙂
