  1. First! (First time ever I get to be first:)) I am really looking forward to this top50. Loved the first part. Now onto watching this one…:)

  2. Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby!! ❤

  3. Jon, I need you to be honest with me… do you actually refer to the Spicy cards by the name of their suits while teaching/playing? Because every time I try to make that happen, someone confuses chilli and pepper and everything goes wonky… I've never had a game of Spicy that didn't devolve into "red/blue/green". Curious to know if that's normal or if you've managed to make the suit names stick

  4. Don’t leave us hanging! What’s her first name? 🥰

  5. Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers is on my shelf of shame! Gonna have to break it out now with the Actual recommendation

  6. I haven't heard of a bunch of the games you've mentioned. Which is nice; more games to read about!

  7. Congratulations on the whole baby thing!!! As soon as I saw today's video in my feed I wordlessly cheered 🙂

  8. So glad we get these top 50 videos! Do enjoy paternity leave :))

  9. Congratulations! Enjoy. Its a whole new world once you become a parent

    I wonder if the amount of knizia gsmes will increase or decrease as we move toeards number 1

  10. +1 Deep Blue – an underrated push your luck gem!

  11. Deep Blue is a fave of mine and seemingly hard to get unfortunately. Always fun when it hits the table

  12. Have you heard about the recently announced Foundations of Metropolis? It's a retail friendly retheme of Foundations of Rome.
    Took a chance on a $15 used copy of Deep Blue. Really enjoying it! It deserves more love for sure!

  13. High Society is so good. Easy to explain and quick to play. It's not my favorite Knizia auction game (that goes to Modern Art) but it's definitely the easiest to get to the table.

  14. Love seeing K2 on someone's top games! The game doesn't get as much praise as it should as a wonderfully fun easy to teach 60 minute game! It's just so tense sometimes!

  15. Congratulations AGAIN 😍 It's Always a party for this kind of events

  16. I 'd like for you to consider my patreon support to be a bribe for New Angeles to make your list and not any sort of support or sign I enjoy your non-New Angeles content 🙂

  17. OK, how many times did you knock over the Spicy box?
    (The number of cuts that start with it wobbling like crazy…)

  18. Love the series, Jon! The one HUGE detail I appreciate which differs from most Top lists is you bring the game out and not only show the gameboard/pieces, but include b-roll of them up close or even (in the case of Scrawl) show your group playing the game. This definitely elevates it above the usual, 'slide over a game box and talk about it', that you see in most videos. Appreciate the extra effort!

  19. Congratulations on the baby. Hope the baby hss ur genes and looks like a yung bloke for a long time though. Take care and stay hndsm!

  20. Love your channel. I am learning a lot.

  21. What is your favourite version of Chronicles of Crimes? Mine is 2400.

  22. I REALLY regret getting rid of Isle of Skye.

  23. Congratulations on the baby! Hunters and Gatherers for the win!

  24. K2 is criminally underrated. Such a good thematic game! Loving the list so far! Just picked up High Society, thanks!

  25. Your favourite designer! What's your thoughts on zoo vadis?

  26. I can't get my hand on Foundation of Rome 🙁

  27. 25:36 "That wouldn't be possible…". Try Suspects, it's basically a Chronicles of Crime game without an app. They solved this app issue quite interesting. I'm sure you will like it 🙂

  28. Love the videos Jon. Congratulations on the birth of your child. I have a 15 month old and my wife is pregnant with our next. She's 18 weeks. My life is so much better with children. Although I don't play too many games anymore which sucks.

  29. Congratulations with the child. Please keep its privacy, I think it's not worth to score some more views in exchange.

  30. congratulations! i also would like to thank you for the last Video, I bought the Blue lagoon and we are happy with my husband

  31. Scrawl is the physical version of Gartic Phone I’ve played in teams meetings.

  32. Thanks for the tip of Carc. Hunters..have get this now as an Carcassone 2.0 😁 had the feeling Carc. In the wild west could be that.. but seems more complicated with the additional stuff..where these additions here seem more streamlined and elegant.. 😊

  33. If you like K2 you have to try the Cave from the same guy. I don't own those games, but played both and me and my wife found Cave more exciting and less predictable where in K2 sometimes you can find yourself stuck with bad choices
