  1. Is this a set-up for a re-enactment of Anachrony?

  2. Loved this show! I was totally expecting the warbler bit to be a Wingspan segue but then it turned out the next game was Star Wars, which is very similar to Wingspan because it has X-wings and wingspan has the word "wing" in the title and both refer to things that fly. So my guess was close, right? They're basically the same game.

  3. The Climbers has always been my favourite segment on this channel! <3

  4. We are waiting for Flourish for retail. I a overburdened in KS right now…. I have been playing Raiders on my iPad for while, but have not actually gotten the game. Lost ruins of Arnack looks really, really cool!! Great looking art. Obsession looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Especially the harpsichord concerts. I have been definitely looking at Dune. Since we are both Dune fans. I had not seen Dune Imperium, the Watch it Played shirt made a cameo.MURLOCKS!! The Time Machine reference. Well done!! Great video, wether you call it Climbers, gaining momenten or whatever!!!

  5. Loving the Can-con, like the curling joke. I'd vice for you any time, Rodney. Just so long as I can throw board weight once an end. Can't draw to save my life.

  6. I downloaded the video to watch later, but I’m eager to find out about the Ketchup chips. These are my favorite and I always ask my in-laws to bring me a couple bags when they come to the US from Canada. I have no idea why they’re not sold here.

  7. This is my new go to channel for warbler related content.

  8. 3 coitals over the course of a game must be quite tiring!

  9. You didn't even mention Cóatl is a Canadian game! Proudly conceived in Quebec!

  10. Wishing chaz all the luck in his escape from this, the Darkest Timeline.

  11. Some of those run on sentences, without stopping to take a breath, why it was majestic… like the warbler. Bravo!

  12. Excellent episode! and very glad to see Obsession featured so highly 🙂

  13. La Société des Jeux - The Boardgames Society says:

    Merci, great selection!

  14. 4:21 – I play harpsichord! =D
    …And that image is unsettling, that's not how you open the lid of a keyboard instrument properly. Yikes!

  15. i watched the video hoping for ketchup chips board game, such a disapointment

  16. “Black-throated blue warbler” 😅😅 that was gold – very funny 🤘

  17. I had happily forgotten Ketchup Potato Chips were even a thing until Rodney mentioned them. Dammit…it took me years, and a frightening amount of alcohol, to wipe those horrible memories from my mind. sigh

  18. Now i finally know why i keep finding harpsichords all over my house.

  19. Harpsichords and kerds!! Deal with them!!!

  20. Finally a channel that's brave enough to point out the need for harpsicord boardgames

  21. Wait a minute…….aren’t you Chaz’s dad. What happened to MOMENTEN????? That whole story about a time machine seems fishy….

    Despite the time machine mishap, it would seem Chaz is still vastly in charge of the script. 🤣

  22. Oh the satisfaction of getting to make 999 likes into 1k!
    Soooo sweet.

  23. So happy to see Dune up there gaining popularity! If you want to try it out or play some games but you can't get 6 people to the table, we have a great place for you. Join the Discord server linked below, there are daily games with all the rulesets you might want. New players are more than welcome, everyone is happy to teach this amazing game!

  24. I just finished my third Coital… I need a break. A man can only do so much.

  25. Hey Rodney, love all your videos! What's the % possibility we get an Obsession tutorial? My wife and I recently bought this and are in the process of learning, but it seems pretty overwhelming so far.

  26. So many awesome games! Hope to be part of the list in the nearest future!

  27. The new reprint of Dune is what got me into board gaming. Just started this journey a few months ago thanks to Dune! What an incredible game.

  28. I'm new to the channel, what were the accumulating points in the top right corner for? 🙂

  29. I think the HeroQuest remake deserves a mention, it's getting close to reaching 3 million backers, with just over a week to go until crowdfunding ends. It's one of the best games ever made, so I'm really glad it's making a comeback.

  30. Oh man I gotta say I've been watching The Climbers for at least a year now and its host Rodney Smith never ceases to get me excited

  31. I wish games that haven't even been printed yet, stop being included in the list.

  32. Yes! Finally Obsession is in the top 5 of a list. The game variants and expansion are so worth checking out too. 😀

  33. Where is MadMobz? It is one of my favourite games! Especially now that we have to stay home, my family and I play it all the time and the winner is free from any chores for the following day 😁
