  1. ⭐—– THIS EPISODE BROUGHT TO YOU BY: —– ⭐Phoenix Performance Coaching tabletop gamers reclaim their health, live pain free, and enhance their gaming skills!Thanks for watching this video, sharing a comment with us, and subscribing if you find our content informative and entertaining!

  2. Great call on adding the other games and summarizing the repeats.

  3. @8:19, "Chaz Flawless Marler" ALMOST rolls off the tongue nicely, but it gets about 3/4 of the way and then trips over an out of place shoe it didn't see because it was too stubborn to turn the lights on…

  4. I think the thing I’m most disappointed in is that this episode wasn’t named Momen-Teen… excellent job as always though Chaz!

  5. I approve this new approach of bringing in outside games or highlighting newer up and coming games. Keeps things fresh and frantic. In addition, I would love to know the workout routine you employ that led you to a flawless victory! Do you do worker wrist placement? Or perhaps deck ab builders? I've considered tile drafting curls but wanted something with a bit more weight to it when I'm building up my engine. Keep up the serious point gains Mr. Marler.

  6. I like the new format of having mystery games! It allows for more games to be in the spotlight, which I love 🙂

  7. Great video! Like the format change a lot!

  8. Thanks for digging into this month's momentum, Chaz. Flawless!

  9. Awesome video! I am excited to play the Elder Scrolls game.

  10. Love the new format! I’d started fast forwarding through the ones you’ve already covered, which was sad!

    Thank you for all y’all do!

  11. I've played my deluxe version of Ra at least 10 times so far. Everyone has loved it! Great game.

  12. I really like adding things so that there are 10 new games to discuss. Probably need a general rule for when a game will be summarized, but I like this. Means hearing about more of a variety of games.

  13. Interesting. I never heard of Dephalofair. Are they going to be sued by Cephalofair? haha 😉 joking aside very much enjoy the new format !

  14. Really like adding a few extra titles to the list so that it stays fresh and gives some exposure to those mentioned less often. Flawless, Marler!

  15. At the risk of sounding like a broken record… can't tell you enough how much I enjoy your videos, Chaz! Thanks!

  16. Another fantastic video. We really enjoy these so much. Thanks for putting so much time into making them awesome.

  17. Love the new format, the bloody fingers at 2:38 was unexpected though 😮

  18. Great idea, making sure to talk about 10 new games each time.

  19. King's Road was $5. YUP! Like, wow. Quickly checked the ratings for the game and a bit of the mechanisms and then bought and put it on hold! We've played it, too. It's cool! Kinda like Elfenland, ish.

  20. This format is interesting because it allows a bit of reduction in repetition. Still, I think it would benefit from an infographic or two that showed the list, or sections thereof, sequentially. It was a bit odd getting number 1 before number 2, with those between 11 and 7 being rushed past and other shenanigans.

    Keep trying to evolve.

  21. Excellent choice to skip the regulars on the list and concentrate on the new ones.

  22. Very cool games and a nice video to showcase them! Good Job as always 🙂

  23. Flawless video as always Chaz 🙂 I think it should now be called The Climbers as Momen-fourteen doesn't have the same ring as Momen-ten 😉🙂

  24. Can you Make a video for (ELEVEN FOOT BALL MANAGER BOARD GAME) ❤
