  1. One big surprise: No Too Many Bones in your top100?? Really surprised! But congrats for this incredible video, good job! <3

  2. lol this guy just listed 100 games and pu them on SHUFFLE to make this list 😂

  3. Great job! You have a gift.I enjoyed watching your video, even though you and I do not align well at all! Many of the games in your top 50 I though were bucket boring and since then culled! Just goes to show the diversity in this hobby. Keep up the great work!Ark nova is a fun 2 player game. My wife and I have it down to around 50 minutes now (that's with set up and take down). I don't want to play with new people or more than two though haha.

  4. Great vid ,nice game summaries with awesome illustrations…thanks

  5. Not so many Rainer Knizia’s games on your list

  6. Thanks for this list and your brief summaries of each game. Have you had a chance to look over your list and categorize by themes, mechanisms, types, designers etc.? I definitely see some patterns by what is on your list and not. As a rough estimate, I ‘d say I have 40-50% of your top games in my collection. Prior videos of yours were factors in my obtaining “The Lost Expedition” and it is a lot of fun. Have you played its expansion, “Fountain of Youth”, yet? I have it, but have yet to try it. Just recently, I played “ Space Base” a bunch and like it a lot. I will always play it with the “Light Speed” variant which is found near the back of the rule book and very easy to implement. It helps ramp the game up a bit quicker like “Prelude” for “Terraforming Mars”.

  7. Thanks, nice list! Waiting for the top solo games

  8. Great list! Neuroshima Hex is still one of my top 10 favorite games. Each faction provides different ways to play and interact, chess-like strategy of playing/laying the tiles, but there is enough luck of the draw to keep it interesting. I will offer a correction that it isn't a 2-player game as you stated, though it is by far best at 2-players.

  9. Have you tried Disney Sorcerer's Arena? It's similar to Unmatched, but more strategic – worth a try!

  10. I really enjoy your channel. Great video.

  11. great list! grove’s a tiny brain teaser in a quiet evening 😊

  12. Wow, that is crazy how much overlap we have in game taste. I haven't played Unmatched, Marvel United, Dwellings of Eldervale, or 7 Wonders Duel. Some games I love but wasn't on your list . . . Gaia Project (instead of Terra Mystica), Xia, Imperial Assault, Bad Company (has replaced Space Base for me), Maracaibo, Tobago, Outer Rim, Flamme Rouge.

    My top 10:
    #1: Pandemic

    #2: Great Western Trail (Second Edition)

    #3: Xia: Legends of a Drift System

    #4: Champions of Midgard

    #5: Star Wars: Imperial Assault

    #6: Clank!: Catacombs

    #7: Viticulture Essential Edition

    #8: Rajas of the Ganges

    #9: Circadians: First Light

    #10:Dune Imperium

  13. I always enjoy hearing you talk about games. Best channel out there.

  14. So many crossovers with my favorite games, I stopped counting. Glad to see Wingspan way ahead of Earth hehe. No hate on the game or the designer, but I dont understand all the reviewers saying Earth is better than Wingspan (and even Ark Nova).

    *Glad to see Caesar's Empire. I feel like it doesn't get the love it deserves. I call it "streamlined TTR." Smart desing to incorporate set collection as end game scoring… Rather than "set collecting" the entire game to be able to claim routes.

  15. Excellent list!! Esp as it overlaps a lot with my own preferences!

  16. Thanks for pulling the list together. A few games we'd like to try out.we enjoy, Ra, Kemet, Wonderlands War, Firefly Fluxx, Parks, Space base, Downforce, here to slay, Thunderbirds, Valor & Villany

  17. Great list and even better effort getting it all done in one sitting!

    My top 10:

    10. Root
    9. Heroes of Land, Air, and Sea
    8. Blood Rage
    7. War of the Ring
    6. Star Wars: Rebellion
    5. Champions of Midgard
    4. Dune: Imperium
    3. Everdell
    2. Xia: Legends of a Drift System
    1. Dwellings of Eldervale

  18. Great list, we definitely have some crossover! I used Pub Meeple to generate a top 200 a couple months ago, of course it is already outdated, such is life in an ever growing hobby. For example, I recently acquired and have had a few plays of Carnegie, which I'd definitely say is at least top 30.

  19. Very much enjoyed your video- great job! I think my tastes are very similar. I’m surprised not to see a Zombicide games or Suishi Go. Just played Camel up card game- very fun. Great job will check out some of these I haven’t played.

  20. Wow, I think you are one of the few people who could go through 100 games basically unedited and give a good brief 30 second explanation of each game. Bravo man, bravo

  21. IMHO Legendary X-Files is the best of Legendary Encounters games, especially for 2 players.

  22. The whole time I expected Too Many Bones on your list, seeing that box behind you.. 😉 What are your thoughts on this game? I personally consider it to be one of the most overrated games of all times. Played it a couple of times and no one in my group really liked it.. it's awfully unbalanced and has scaling problems, IMHO…

  23. I've rarely seen a content creator who has this much overlap in tastes with me. I think half of my top 50 are in your top 100.

  24. Brian Boru & Abyss… Glad tot see them here… 2 of the most underrated games on bgg for me

  25. Really impressive performance! What endurance. Also love the brief descriptions and the comprehensive list. Keep up the awesome work.

  26. Sad to hear you had sour experiences with Architects. Glad to see Wingspan jump like that!

  27. Unmatched – I've never played this and was considering buying it – as a potentially new Unmatched player which box would you recommend buying first? Hopefully not too an impossible question for you!

  28. dune imperium at 29 ! ? 🤯 … wow! :/

  29. Please kill me if I ever have to play Scythe ever again

  30. Great list and an impressive performance. Your elevator pitches for each game are very well done, if you don't know the game, they trigger enough curiosity. Very much appreciated!

  31. Wingspan in the top 10? You know the level of the rest then.

  32. This may be my favorite Top 100.
    1. You slam through them.
    2. THE GAMES ARE REAL! I get soo tired of game lists that have these unattainable, unplayable, epic and eternal "monster" games on them.
    Thanks!

  33. Long list in one go, well done, and concur with a lot of your choices 🎉

  34. All these lists disappoint me due to them never or hardly ever including detective/crime/deduction type games, where a person has to use logic and really think clearly. I'm too old being in my mid-50s to play shoot, kill, fight, etc. Not into competitive games as playing them with a partner can be deadly, for the r'ship. I like mystery, fantasy, light, cooperative games, or crime-solving type games. Pandemic I will never ever get…the word itself has burnt me so much cos of the Australian govt during that time that no way on earth would I even come close to getting a game with that name, no matter how good it is. Wingspan….birds don't interest me in the slightest, again no matter good the game. Some games I bought yet haven't played though plan to once I move to Europe to be with my Mrs and Granddaughter are……Untold Adventures, Legacy of Dragonholt, Sleeping Gods, 7th Continent, Flamecraft. Crime and horror types are clearly ones which include Sherlock Holmes, Fury of Dracula, Ghost Stories, and Horrified. These to me are much better games, for my age group, rather than the Euro style, shooting, fighting, etc game style that seems to be most prevalent in many of these lists and is so disenchanting.

    On a positive note, how on earth you can play 400 games in 18 months is beyond me lol, and even more so, how the hell do you remember 100 games and what each does. I have about 50 and already forget what I have lol….so your memory impresses me a lot. Good on you for finding your passion and enjoying what you do…..my memory may improve once I start playing the games 🙂

  35. I like your simplistic style and brief explanations on each game. Turns the videos easily watched while helps me choose what games match my preferences! Keep up the good work!

    My Top 5:
    1) 7 Wonders Duels
    2) Lost Cities
    3) Marvel Champions
    4) Cascadia
    5) The Crew
