  1. I wish I could get my wife more into boardgames, these all look like a ton of fun!

  2. Currently waiting for Dwellings of Eldervale and Altar Quest

  3. I always look forward to these videos! Thank you!

  4. Will a time travel fix july's missing top? (I missed this)

  5. The #1 reveal… I knew it was coming, and I still loved that transition!

  6. Love the orange background coupled with the orange lettering on your shirt. A fantastic aesthetic. Very pleasing to look at and a nice professional touch.

  7. Nice, i cant Belive it the lord of rings journey to the middle earth is not on the 10 top T.T

  8. Love seeing these! Always exciting to see new games enter the count. Haha also the number one reveal made me laugh 😊😊

  9. shocked fort is not on this list…i wonder where it ended up.

  10. Can't wait for 2021 when the top 3 will all be Haven games.

  11. #10 – Arkham Horror Card Game – Played this and enjoyed it…but not enough to get into the next sets though I hear they are great.
    #9 – Everdell – Great worker placement game, though I find they could have done so much more with the theme. Still as a pure worker placement game, it's well done and tight.
    #8 – The Crew – Never Played it.
    #7 – Spirit Island – Got it, played it 5 times, and… I'm still undecided. It's a complicated game. It has this genius piece to it… but….it's just not clicked for us yet. It's on the block: Keep or trade?
    #6 – Brass Birmingham – Don't have it and haven't played it.
    #5 – Wingspan – Brilliant fun game. Shouldn't be fun, it's about stupid birds, but it is, and I highly recommend it, even WITH the hype! I'll be playing it this weekend.
    #4 – Terraforming Mars – Sorry, never played it.
    #3 – Imperial Struggle – Looking forward to this one!
    #2 – Gloomhaven – AWESOME game. Holy Smokes. If you are a serious gamer, get this game. It's worth it.
    #1 – Gloomhaven – Jaws of the Lion – Ha… that's funny that this is number one. Haven't played this yet, still have too much Gloomhaven to play!

    Another game we are playing a lot of lately… Blood Rage!

  12. What is Chaz going to do when the top three are Gloomhaven, Jaws of the Lion and Frosthaven?

    Love these lists, so very entertaining, appreciated. 👍🏻

  13. Welcome to Top 10 Hottest Board Games: August 2042. Today in exciting news, at number 10 a first non-Gloomhaven game on this list in four years…

  14. lol, I was thinking Frosthaven but JotL was funnier.

  15. lol, Gloomhaven was not happy holding only 1 hotness spot, even if it was the number 1 spot, now it has 1 and 2…so when Frosthaven comes…it will have all 3 top spots, that is Isaac's evil plan…and then after that, the top 4 spot, then 5 then muahahahahaha

  16. clicked to see what knocked Gloomhaven from its number 1 spot.

    Not disappointed.

  17. The #1 is in my opinion, a disappointing choice. Give some other games a chance.

  18. Very cool to see Imperial Struggle at #3.

    And The Crew above Yokohama makes my soul hurt a little bit.
