  1. Did you make a last video about those solo games? I remember you tried a few and I was wondering about them, but haven't seen them. I guess they fell through eh? lol

  2. I agree with Sunniva about Castles of Burgundy. Amazing game and fantastic table presence. I never played the original as it was too bland looking for me. My friends thought I was nuts. Then the Anniversary came out and I yawned again. This edition however…WOW! It draws me in with the mini castles and the acrylic tiles. I love it! Great lists. Now, I need to go buy a few of them. Thanks BGR😩

  3. You two are such a joy to watch! Thank you for all your videos. They always make me smile!

  4. Terrific video series! It was a lot of fun watching and following along. Also, I believe Suniva won the crossover guessing contest. Haha

    My top 10:

    10. Dinosaur Island
    9. Endeavor: Age of Sail
    8. Eclipse: A New Dawn for the Galaxy
    7. Sabika
    6. Marvel Champions
    5. Everdell
    4. Scythe
    3. Voidfall
    2. Wayfarers of the South Tigris
    1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Change is Constant

  5. Federation is also top 10 game for me, I don't understand why it's not more popular. Also, did Barrage not make your list or did I miss it?

  6. Great list and lots of good feelings

  7. My top 3:
    1. Brass Birmingham
    2. Castles of Burgundy
    3. Pax Pamir

  8. Fantastic list and happy to see Federation is loved by others. An alignment here and there when looking at your top 10 in comparison to my favorite 10 of all time:
    1. Maracaibo
    2. Hansa Teutonica
    3. Anachrony
    4. Troyes
    5. Pax Pamir: 2nd Edition
    6. Age of Steam
    7. Pax Transhumanity
    8. Three Kingdoms Redux
    9. Mombasa
    10. Lisboa

  9. Continue to go off script. Being on script isn't what makes this channel.

  10. Such good lists! Now I need to look at Federation and a few others since we have so many crossover favorites.

  11. I think I was making that same face when Sunniva had Voidfall so high on the list. 😂

  12. I love you guys so much! Y’all give me all the good feelings and each video makes me smile 🙂 I haven’t done a personal top 10 in awhile, but I would guess that Lisboa and Kanban are both on there for me. I’m with you, Johannes- that giddy feeling I get when I play Lisboa is so hard to explain but it just brings me such joy! Fabulous top 100- thank YOU for bringing us all these wonderful videos 🙂

  13. Hahaha i seriously get a lot of joy watching you two!

  14. You guys are fantastic! I always enjoy your videos, but this one was especially moving. You totally nailed it Johannes, in your off script rambling about why cardboard matters so much in our lives. Thank YOU both so much! 😘❤️

  15. IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! Federation was my 43 but I think it will climb with more plays. Clans is my 55 and would be higher if I could play it more. Vinhos is my 38, Evacuation my 18. Castles is my 29 and Feast is my 25. Three way crossover twice in this section with Kanban and Brass!

    Thankful for you guys too. Have to say you have pretty good tastes in games 🙂

    My top 10: 10 – Yedo – Deluxe Master Set
    9 – Kanban EV
    8 – Tekhenu
    7 – Great Western Trail (New Zealand et al)
    6 – On Mars
    5 – Brass: Birmingham
    4 – Anachrony
    3 – Spirit Island
    2 – Perseverance: Castaway Chronicles
    1 – Voidfall – An absolute masterpiece for me. 60+ plays and counting.

  16. Wonderful! 👏👏👏
    Thank you for the whole top 100. It helps me find out what other good games are out there that I should try, because playing great boardgames with fine people (like you) makes me happy 😊

  17. Johannes Vinhos being your 5th best Lacerda at #7 left me wonder which 2 games would not be Lacerdas!

  18. Thank you guys, I had a lot of fun with the top 100 videos (as with every video you upload) !

  19. Both your number one's are games that I keep looking at but holding off from as I tend to be less drawn to euro's in general… I suspect I will cave in at some point. Kudos on your channel by the way. Only came across it earlier in the year but love the authenticity you bring to your videos.

  20. Solid list. I am just arriving home from playing A Feast for Odin, such a good game. And two weeks ago I visited Lisboa , one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. To celebrate it we played Lisboa. So, a lot of coincidences. : )

  21. I have loved following your list guys! I enjoy it every year!

  22. Great video! You two make me smile! My only crossover was Castles of Burgundy but I finally own Feast for Odin and I think I will try Lisboa at my next convention if I can.

  23. The games in my top 10 (not ranked, as they would not be ranked the same way in ten minutes): Teotihuacan; Terraforming Mars; Sagrada; Darwin's Journey; Underwater Cities; The Gallerist; Targi; Nucleum; Grand Austria Hotel (wirh exps); The Castles of Burgundy…

    Thanks for your work, I enjoyed all the episodes very much

  24. In no particular order, the following would be my current Top 10 list I think: Terraforming Mars, Vindication, Unsettled, Dune: Imperium, Voidfall, Castles of Burgundy (yes, the special edition), Mind MGMT, Concordia, Ra, and Inis.

    I'd really like to try Federation as it looks like a game that would be really fun and likely could be in my Top 10! Thanks for the great series.

  25. Your guys talk before announcing number one was a beautiful love letter to this hobby 😁 My favorite game is actually Arcadia Quest because of the memories it created with my sons, we played through every campaign and expansion multiple times. Castles of Burgundy is close though!

  26. Oh em gee… it is time for the top 10! And for me to watch 3x. Loved the entire series. Yay!

  27. Lovely impassioned speech near the end there. 👌🏻

  28. I like you guys, wonder what you are feeling against music. if you do, react to `the Warning🤘🤘🤘

  29. The old vinhos i agree is better!! The fair is also more interesting

  30. You summed up how many of us feel about the hobby. Well said! To answer your question, my number one is (and likely always will be) Dominion. Dominion does for me what Lisboa and others do for you. Keep doing what you do, I will keep coming back to watch.

  31. In Japanese, the letter A is always pronounced "ah," So both syllables would rhyme with yawn or Don. 🙂

  32. Great series folks. Loved every video detailing your top 100 games.

  33. 5. Feast for Oden
    4. Concordia
    3. Gaia Project
    2. Voidfall
    1. Brass Birmingham

  34. Watching you makes me happy ❤ like this 😊

  35. Loved watching your list and love watching you.

  36. Great top 10… I knew Lacerda would rule this part of the list. Except for Frosthaven every game in your top 10's could be in mine, but Anachrony, Obsession and Ark Nova are missing for me.

  37. This was lovely and fun to watch, thank you! You guys have such an uplifting energy. You also have great taste in games, and you explain extremely well what you like, don’t like, and why. Well done, and congratulations! BTW my favourite game is Dominant Species. It’s old and it’s mean, but boy is it a good time. It’s one of those “event games” that I only play once or twice a year, but always love it. Cheers!

  38. I would say:
    10. Federation
    9. Pax pamir
    8. Castle of Burgundy
    7. El grande
    6. Lisboa
    5. FCM
    4. Barrage
    3. Dune imperium
    2. Ark nova
    1. Brass

  39. #1 games were the best euros in existence for many gamers.

  40. Gaia Project is still superior to Age of Innovation

  41. Thanks for suggesting the Feast for Odin expansion. I would have never considered picking it up otherwise.

  42. My no 1 is also Feast for Odin!! I dont know how to explain it, it is just sooo fulfilling!! Great set of videos guys, thank you so much!! You are great ❤

  43. Vic here – gaming veteran from Canada (started with Avalon Hill games in the 70s). Here is my current list of top-twenty all-time favourite games, not counting Vital Lacerda’s games, which are in a class by themselves and just don’t get played near as often as I would like and they deserve. I am waiting to play Inventions for the first time, but otherwise my current top-six Lacerda games (all of which I adore) are:

    On Mars
    Kanban EV
    The Gallerist
    Weather Machine

    Before I list my top twenty, I need to mention that of course there are many great games I haven’t played yet and that this list doesn’t include my all-time favourite game experiences (because they are one-off for me). Those cooperative experiences would include the Pandemic Legacy games (especially Season 1) as well as Sleeping Gods and Forgotten Waters. Here’s my top twenty today:

    Die Macher
    Age of Innovation
    Gaia Project
    Terraforming Mars
    A Feast for Odin
    Le Havre
    Hegemony: Lead Your Class to Victory
    The Castles of Burgundy
    Teotihuacan: City of Gods
    Ultimate Railroads
    The LOOP
    Praga Caput Regni
    Rajas of the Ganges
    Ora et Labora

  44. You guys are great! Thank you for doing what you do!

  45. Fantastic list! I think of all the content producers out there I have the most in common with you guys. Our crossovers would be well above 60. Here is my top 10 list.

    1 Brass: Birmingham

    2 Barrage

    3 Lisboa

    4 Clans of Caledonia

    5 Underwater Cities

    6 Anachrony: Infinity Box (with Fractures of Time)

    7 War of the Ring: Second Edition

    8 The Gallerist

    9 On Mars

    10 Great Western Trail: New Zealand
