  1. i share the same sentiment with a lot of these popular games

  2. People don't love Mage Knight because it's a deck builder or you move on a map Thom. It's because the combination of the deck building + hand management + board state = interesting, puzzle type gameplay that hasn't been successfully replicated to the same degree since it came out.

    I get why people might not like it, but the fact it's still a game that appears at the top of people's solo lists 13 years after it came out kind of says something.

    Edit: To elaborate on this. It would make more sense for Thom to point out other games that do what Mage Knight does, but better, in order to prove his point that it's overrated. Because it'll be hard for you to find any.

  3. Camilla and I definitely have very different tastes! Chris and Zee both mentioned some of my disappointments also.

  4. Sorry to be that guy, but so many events like this later, it would be great if we could get the audio right – It sounds like its was recorded from the room instead of from the mics – Perhaps it is all more difficult than I imagine but it is quite tough to watch/listen.

  5. Poor audio but I like how the panel kept their criticisms on point

  6. I don't get the hate for Quacks, especially coming from Zee: it's such a welcoming game. I had great success teaching this game to new players. Of course it's luck, that's why it's called push your luck!

  7. Good job pulling off a “family-friendly roast” vibe. Fun video.

    Specifically for solo, I don’t get the hype for Wingspan’s automa. It does not approximate how a human plays nor how a human would score (unless your friends regularly score 110-135 points). Maybe I keep getting unlucky, but it puts too many birds into play for the facedown bird card point value to effectively modulate the difficulty.

  8. I often wait for a long time to play these heavier games that are rated highly, because they are expensive and sometimes over time they start to lose their steam. Fir that reason i just recently tried great western trail. That game has just hung around. I tried it just before this video came out and i hated it so much… I even asked the question out loud, "what is this train even for?" I'm glad to see that im not a crazy person!

  9. 9:05 maybe Milla should have tried the actual game, “Deception: Murder in Hong Kong” ….. sounds like she played a knock off version with a different name lol

  10. List should have been called "Zee hates czech games" 😀 😀 😀

  11. Perhaps recording from the sound mixer next time so it's more discernible.

  12. That was a lot of fun! Needed those laughs. Joey was on fire!

  13. Pokemon Splendor! I knew of Eevee Point Salad (which I bought), didn't know of Pokemon Splendor until now. You know a game has made it when South Korea makes a pokemon version of it.

  14. Boy clearly tom is the only one at the DT who has good taste in games

  15. I actually agree with all these lists except Mike's

  16. Thanks Camilla. Glad I’m not alone about Just One. I think it’s lame and everyone acts like it’s amazing. So blah.

  17. Nemesis would be my top pick. I just don't get how the game is so well liked. It has all the mechanisms, and elements of games people in the hobby don't like, and for some reason this game is so well received. It takes forever to set up, rules are fiddly, game play is random, has player elimination, can take very long, or be very quick. The game play is boring, the cards you play are boring. How on earth is this so high?!?

  18. I turned on closed captions and it helped a bit. Great job to the team! Loved it! 😂

  19. Totally agree with Zee on Galaxy Trucker.

    Splendor… coupon builder 💀

  20. wow most of my fav games are overrrated lol
    1.) aeons end
    2.) wingspan
    3.) quacks
    4.) gloomhaven

  21. that is exactly what i do not want to get Marvel united , not only I'm tired of north american super heroes , this game looks like it was made by EA with all the "micro expansions" and stuff

  22. Chris Yi calling out CMON on Marvel United is just the best.

  23. Maybe I am one of the lucky ones but I never had a horrible experience with Nemesis… such a great game…

  24. Mage Knight so much needs a digital implementation….

  25. No one had the courage to say Brass: Birmingham

  26. The absolute lack of "Dominion" on these lists is disappointing. Zero-star game. 😄

  27. 1. Dominion
    2. Wingspan
    3. 7 Wonders
    4. HEAT: Pedal to the Mettle
    5. Pandemic Legacy

  28. Will watch the video later but hope someone mention Earth. Most overrated nature game with poor production. Can’t get my head around being compared with Wingspan, Terraforming Mars and Ark Nova. Those 3 games had tons of different things to do, while in Earth the green cube, growth cube, the disposed card are all samey as they all give 1 points each. Not to mentioned the card power variety is super low.

  29. How can Magic be overrated? Regardless of what you think of its gameplay, its impact on the hobby is undeniably huge

  30. Calling Eldritch Horror a euro is a wild take

  31. This was one of the best top games list! Although I can't believe how much I disagree with most of it. Nemesis is one of the best games of all time. Easily near perfect game. Great western trail hate ???? thats nuts to me. I can understand the finicky of galaxy trucker a little I guess.


  32. It's all subjective- I like Mage Knight much better than Gloomhaven

  33. My number 1 would be… Dune Imperium. I love worker placement. I love deck building. Love Ruins of Arnak, Caverna, Architects of the West Kingdom, and many more. But i hate that game. It's just something in graphic desing that's awful to me. The board is just boring with all these simple shapes. And the gameplay itself feels very mechanic, but at the same time soulless.

  34. Best list – Tom. I agreed with every pick.

    Worst list – Camilla. She must have been trolling, no way any actual gamer holds those positions.

  35. Erik, why weren't you passing the mike to Chris when they were discussing games? I am sure he would have something to add, if he wasn't mike-less

  36. Yes, the sound is bad.

    However, if our options are these videos with bad sound or not getting them at all, I’ll take the video all day.

    Thanks for making them available.

  37. I wanted to hear Eric's top 5 overrated games.

  38. Hot damn! Joey kills on this list! Even his shots between selections land hard. On fire!

  39. The more videos I watch with Joey, the more I relate to him lol his list just overlaps with mine almost completely

  40. A great list apart from 3 games:

    Aeon's End isn't overrated since it IS the best cooperative deck builder. Nor because it's so good, but because the other ones are not AS good.

    As for Gloomhaven, if he said it a year ago, sure: no game is technically deserving of being number 1. But now that it's dropped, it's certainly not overrated – it IS the best Dungeon Crawler.

    Mage Knight is the best Adventure game, no competition. And it's awesome coop. Overrated?! This is so wrong on so many levels. Sheesh.

  41. 100% agree with Chris and Zee about Quacks. That would be my number 1 followed by Codenames, Parks and Kingdom Builder (mentioned by Tom).

  42. Fun video and I struggled to think of something that I could add but it just came to me…. Turing Machine – Not a game!!! 😡🤣👍. Not a fan.

  43. Okay. Everyone likes to play Munchkin more than these 27 games.

  44. 44:50 Finally Camilla! Wyrmspan got the appreciation from you guys at Dice Tower what Wingspan should have received.
