Finally getting a chance to watch this...going to give my real time thoughts within this comment and post it when the video's over...- #Gizmos love right off the bat. I'm still salty pubmeeple couldn't figure out a way to get it in my top 10.
- Following it up with #The Networks? Did you make this list from my collection?
- Okay I'm not even 10 games into this and already want to check out 3 of these games. I think I have a problem.
- False alarm..through 20 now and haven't added anything else to my wishlist. Crisis averted?
- Gotta play #Scythe again soon. Those painted minis looked awesome.
- I do agree #Century: Golem Edition is a pretty game but it's a bit of a snoozefest for me.
- #It's a Wonderful World all day every day.
- I'm real proud of myself holding strong with these 3 games through half the list.
- In my estimation, Patreon supporter Brett Hart is the best there ever is, best there ever was, and the best there ever will be.
- Okay you got me with #Circadians: First Light. It was a good run.
- Good thing #Yokohama was already on my wishlist. Jokes on you.
- Just picked up #Suburbia in a math trade and I'm even more excited for it to arrive now!
- I don't think it would be for me, but oddly enough #Millennium Blades sounds..well..you have my interest.
- Totally didn't expect to see #Chinatown ranked so high! Great game!!
- Couldn't say I saw a theme on this list actually... :P
- Love the top 2!!
Overall an awesome list! Real proud of myself for only finding a handful I want to look into more. For anyone who might want to know which few caught my eye:
Thanks for an amazing video @3MBG!!

Roxley Kickstarted the standalone expansion to Steampunk Rally a while back by the way. It's #Steampunk Rally Fusion

I'm just going to continue our conversation here because even on the desktop the reply box was getting too ridiculously tiny. So you don't have to look it up, you said:
"Right now I'm on the lookout for lighter games that can be played with 5. Playing with my cousins recently has made me want to continue to introduce them to stuff so we don't get burnt out on #Wingspan"
#The Climbers is an interesting one and makes for a cool time playing with blocks. You can also play #Secret Hitler at 5p! haha I also very much like #Steampunk Rally. It scales very well because of the simultaneous play. I feel like its a little bit more involved than Wingspan, but its one of those games that you can have fun playing even though you're not winning.

Of those I think Steampunk Rally might work...at least from what I remember of it.Guess I'll have to watch another video lol. I just watched The Climbers and I think while it seems like it could be fun...I don't know if I'd necessarily have fun haha. And Secret Hitler at 5 I think would depend on how many are on each team. Are there 3 liberals?

I am a board game hoarder/collector. I buy things because I want to play them and then due to lack of time and lack of people to play with they only end up hitting the table a few times. So I would have to get the ones that hit the table the most which would be: #Viticulture: Essential Edition ($45), #Steampunk Rally ($24), #Secret Hitler ($35), #Codenames ($10), #Puerto Rico ($17), #Spirit Island ($55) and we can throw in #Animal Upon Animal ($10) for the kiddos.
However, if I were really starting over (and like, wiping my brain of gaming memory) #Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 and #Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 were some of the best gaming experiences I've ever had so I'd tell myself to get those and of course #Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 which I haven't started yet but I'm sure will be great

Played #Steampunk Rally at 6p yesterday. For the first time ever I played a small machine strategy. (I tend to go for hulking monstrosities.) I sped far ahead of everyone else but stalled out when my husband tried to blow me up and I had to spend a whole round just rebuilding health. Ended up coming in 3rd.
Also played #Bites and #Tsuro with the Sunday school kids. I've got a new crop of 3rd/4th graders now since the other ones moved up a grade and one year really makes a difference. I'm still getting to know them but it seems like one girl is very interested in games so we'll see if I can nurture that seed a bit.

Hubby and I taught my sister's bf how to play #Steampunk Rally. He did pretty well for his first time, managed to cross the finish line. Hubby beat me out by one space though.

I'm a fan of trading. So far only traded one game. Traded off #Steampunk Rally on BGG because my wife didn't really care for it so it wasn't going to see play. I traded for #Space Base but haven't got it to the table yet. I'm basically at capacity for games so trading is a good way to just swap out a game for a game. The shipping cost was still cheaper than buying the game, but that really does depend on the box size and weight.
I need to go through my games and do another check of what I would trade off. #Ethnos is on my list of games to try.

#Steampunk Rally! That one is probably my favorite dice game. Also #Troyes, does that count as a dice game? #Sagrada is enjoyable as well, but that one is much lighter and I use for people who want to play a light game.

Ah yes! I checked out #Steampunk Rally when they had the kickstarter and it looked interesting! It is mostly a race game at the heart of it ya?

Yes, its a racing game where you are drafting different parts of your racing machine every round of the game. The dice represent various types of energy (steam, electricity, heat) and you use them to power your steampunk machine. I love it because its sort of like building your own rube goldberg machine. You can use heat dice to convert to steam dice which you then use to generate motion etc. Two dice can multiply into more dice and those dice do other things and its enjoyable just getting your machine to move forward, much less racing your opponents. I like it a lot.

Played #Scythe: The Rise of Fenris first four or five scenarios (I think 5?). Been reading the rules and watching videos for #Steampunk Rally and am ready to play this week!
I don't have many "deluxe" components. However, I play with a friend who always springs for the deluxe bits for games, like specialized meeples or metal cubes etc. I always have to ask him if this comes with the base game or if it was special ordered haha. I do very much appreciate the upgraded tactile experience it lends to a game, but considering the amount of play that many of my games get (that is to say, not much) I find it generally not to be worth the money. However, there are a couple games that I have upgraded a bit:

Oh my goodness... depending on the price it's gonna be hard for me to not support this project (admittedly this is an initial reaction) but so many things look like they would hit the mark for me. 4x, Negative Player Interaction, Hand Management, Area Control, Resource Management, Sandbox. Plus, I love alternate history and Steampunk.
The player count is not problematic for me as I almost never play at 2P.
Is the artwork the same artist that has done the North Sea and West Kingdom games?
