  1. Yay! You're back! You have a way of always showing up just when I start to miss you and your videos. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us this time. Congrats on becoming a father!

  2. Not watched yet, but I am sure that Cascada will be very high with how often you talk about it. 😂

  3. Congratulation to both of you!!! What a lovely baby girl…

  4. one positive of parenthood get play more games

  5. Looking good, congrats on the baby!!! BTW how old are you?

  6. Congrats on the new baby!!! Tobago looks awesome, but where did you get the upgraded vehicles?

  7. Totally agree with your Tobago comments. Great game!

  8. I'm a big fan of Actualol's channel. I instantly "like" his video upon opening. I know the quality and humor will be there. Fantastic video, as always. Also, yay baby! Congratulations. She is beautiful. Soooo, what's the first game you are going to introduce to your daughter? Idea for a video: games to play with a baby in hand/next to game table. Happy for you and your family!

  9. Wait how did I not know Actual lol was from Salisbury, my home town?

  10. There's a store where I live where I can rent boardgames. I've already added a few to my queue!
    Also, congrats on the baby! 🎉

  11. after you said "1775" i was anticipating your snarking renaming of the war of independence

    ive never been so disappointed 🙁

  12. "…but if you're convinced we're gaming soulmates and you do want to buy ones of these games, I've got links in the description below." cries in U.S. OOP Tobago

  13. Great presentation and content. Congrats on fatherhood.

  14. Were those Micro Machines on the Tobago board?

  15. Congrats on becoming a dad!!…but in a way, you’ve been our board game father for a while! 😉

  16. I don't know if I'd say we're gaming soulmates (I'm not Daniel Radcliffe after all)… but the first 10 included 3 games I love, 3 games I've always wanted to try, and one where I have something else that scratches the same itch.

    Also, CONGRATULATIONS ON THE KID! You'll be a wonderful dad. Just channel your inner Timmy!

  17. dead of winter is pretty rotten and longest night is probably better but a decent list for beginners or proselytizers for sure!

  18. Congratulations on the arrival of your youngest family member!

    When I was younger, "on the longer side" would have meant a game like Advanced Civilization or Diplomacy, games that take 8-12 hours. But now, "on the longer side" means 2-3 hours, as you described for 876 Vikings.

    Q.E. reminds me of High Society, which is a similar auction game where you win by having the most toys at the end, as long as you haven't spent the most money to get them. But Q.E. lets you bid absolutely anything you want, and High Society limits your bids to the money cards you have in your hand, and prevents you from "making change" with the money cards you've already bid.

    I really want to play Dead of Winter sometime, but my wife isn't interested in the theme. Speaking of themes that put off some players, if you want to avoid a "criminal underworld" theme, a good negotiation game (with a business theme) is I'm the Boss by Sid Sackson.

  20. I'm just amazed you said 'In THE hospital' instead of 'In hospital'. Thanks for catering to the US audience.. lol Great video as always.

  21. Congratulations on the new member of the family! The best decision you'll ever make.

  22. Congrats on the baby! Hope she's healthy and well, and your family is adjusting to the changes that comes with that! Interesting start to the list. Tobago is a game that I can't remember if I've just played it a couple times, or if I owned it at one point… if so, I kinda miss it 🙁

    Clank is one of my all-time faves… curious what you think about the other versions, most notably, Catacombs.

    Anyways, I really like the way you talk about the games here; the passion and positive energy is very contagious. Looking forward to the rest of the list!

  23. Welcome back you smexy (smart & sexy) bastard! Watch those advertisements fellas. Daddy needs diaper money! 😭💰😂

  24. Congrats on becoming a father Jon! I have recently gotten into board games, and watching your channel. I absolutely love your videos, and have already gone years back into the archives in the past few weeks 😅

  25. Congrats on the baby! We had one just 2 yrs ago, and now have hardly any time at all for board games😢 hopefully he will grow up soon and enjoy gaming and then we can play with him. Btw love love Dead of Winter, it’s never leaving my collection! I also enjoy Blue Lagoon a lot, Babylonia is also a good Knizia game!

  26. Interesting take on Dead of Winter. I had a great time in my first play which was close with no traitor. Every game since though it's been clear that the traitor can just play like anyone else until they have a double turn opportunity to end it and it all fell apart. Seems like the answer was randomly to just exile people early game but I'm not interested in that!

  27. Baby pic #2 looks exactly like crestfallen Timmy!

  28. Finally we can hear your thoughts on chinatown! I love bohnanza but i was hesitant on getting chinatown, having the same problem that you have: i love negotiation but all gamers seem to be averse to high interaction / conflict. If you can hold only one you pick bohnanza or chinatown?

  29. Another game with great artwork is Ecologies – only on Etsy, three versions. Each deck is different and I would argue at about the same quality, though the first deck has one OP ecosystem which ends the game if you complete it – so in some groups, it's fun to sabotage anyone trying for that ecosystem…and in nice groups, that person just wins

  30. No chapter markers = downvote. You and The Dice Tower suck at this!

  31. Yay! A new video! … Wow! Congratulations on becoming a father.

  32. Good to see Dead of Winter getting some love!!

  33. Congratulations. A lovely little girl! <3

  34. Again, congratulations on becoming a father 😍

  35. Fantastic Video, again!! Where did you buy the little cars/Jeeps for Tobago ?

  36. It still throws me off at the ending every time hearing someone with the same uncommon surname as me lol

  37. Wow, I'm so thrilled to have found your channel. Nowadays it feels like a big majority of reviewers only like multiplayer solitaire games.

    I want to feel like I am playing against my opponents, rather than against the game itself. Negotiation and bluffing are my two favoruite mechanisms.

    This top 10 looks really promising and I cant wait to find out what the rest of the list is gonna look like.
