  1. All Lacerda's on two? I do not mind the cheat but it is wrong … On Mars for example is a lot heavier than Gallerist… there is a lot of difference between the Lacerda's. Your list is interesting, but mine is totally different, but that's to be expected, ask a 100 gamers and you'll have a 100 different lists. When it comes to Mindclash I find Trickerion a lot heavier than Anachrony. My list also contains Barrage, Praga Caput Regni, Trismegistus, Imperial Steam, Arkwright, Curious Cargo, and I agree with TTA.

  2. I'm of course more into wargames … but I would say that a lot of 18xx games are really not that complicated. A game like 1889 is even in the low end of medium.But in the genre you presented… Barrage would be a good candidate for a spot in the list.

  3. I love all your picks, apart from Gloomhaven. Great choices.

  4. Absolutely no hate for that #2 pick! 😍😍

  5. Once I saw your number 10 I knew I was in for a fantastic list. If you haven't, I'd encourage diving into the pax series with Transhumanity and Renaissance. Arkwright is the only other game that I'd put in my room 10 that you didn't have. Great list and looking forward to checking out the rest of your list!

  6. You obviously don't own High Frontier. Otherwise it'd definitely be on your list! 🙂

  7. What do you think about pax pamir solo?

    Btw putting all lacerdas at 2 should be considered as cheating 😂😂

  8. Great choices.
    The problem I have been s not the complexity of a game but the rule book ! If the rules are logically laid out then a bit of time and effort will suffice. However, if the rule book is badly written ( mainly due to lazy translation ) then it becomes frustrating and eventually boring trying to " decipher" how best do I play this game without cheating !
    Robinson Crusoe: Cursed Island (1at Ed) had my head spinning but I did so want to play it that I started writing notes with lots of ??? Did "this, that it the other make sense " ?……The answer was invariably no ! You may have guessed by now that I started playing a sort of " my own game " version ! Not a good idea at all because it can become a habit and a bad one at that. What helped ? Yes, watching UTube.
    Needless to say, some videos are better than others as are the ones explaining.
    Shaggi, you are calm and collected and that helps so much whearas there are others that talk fast, camera angles and audio problems to boot and " well, that is it ' attitude……I cringe at those.
    Congratulations for being the best.
    BTW: Yes, I lost again playing " This War of Mine " and not due to fighting this time but due to the cold and lack of food. Will try again next week 😊
    Kind regards and more great games.

  9. Interesting list. A lot of games I had never heard of before! Pax Pamir is another game I would love to see a solo playthrough of.

  10. I really like a lot of the games you did playthroughs on. Also love the way you do your playthroughs. I will give these games a closer look since I had a similiar taste in your past playthroughs.

  11. You and Toph will get along ! Hehe great list – Brad

  12. Thinking about getting a Lacerda and/or Mindclash game, but not sure which one.
    Any recommendations?

  13. I have never really been drawn to war games either but I have been looking at the “coin” series games from GMT and they look awesome! They seem to tell a good story about the conflict that they simulate. Very deep and interesting strategy as well. Just a thought.

  14. What a great list. I haven't tried anything Lacerda yet and keep almost getting there but not quite. Super curious about the video you will make about them. Also, I'm curious what you think about Spirit Island. And … if it ever comes up, I'd be so intrigued to see a tutorial playthrough of Pax Pamir because I've tried to wrap my brain around it, it is so elegant and beautiful (visually and game-design), and I'm still like not quite grokking it. Sort of how you described it. Your videos are frickin' awesome! Thanks for all the work you put into them.

  15. Thank you, such a great list, do a pax pamir solo please.

  16. "Through the Ages the number 1 most complex game? Bwahahahaha!", laughs Advanced Squad Leader, whose rulebook comes in a 2" thick binder…🤣🤣🤣

  17. Wow your videos are top notch man! Great job! Perfect amount of time spent giving us a glimpse of these 10 games.

  18. Great video! I'm really looking forward to your Lacerda list. I just haven't quite pulled the trigger on any of them yet but I want to at some point. Would be helpful to hear your opinion.

  19. I love every Lacerda I played so far! Does Madeira have solo? Curious about this game. We have very similar tastes.

  20. Looking forward to your Vital Lacerda ranking! 😀
