I have 8 hours of driving to do tomorrow. Looking forward to listening to this on the road.

I listened to it now. I was a little surprised where some of the games showed up... But I did enjoy listening to it. 

Does it really usual take 2-3 hrs to play a game of viticulture? If so, that does cool my interest on it a little bit, after all I can generally whip out a 4 or 5 player game of Scythe in just under two hours. 

Cheers for 2020.

I've played Viticulture probably as much as any game.  It almost never takes me 2 - 3 hours unless I'm teaching 4 new people.  Even with 2 new people it usually takes at most close to 2.  If everyone has played I can usually get a game in in an hour.

Gotcha

Part of what makes it take so long is that many nights we play, we have at least one new person that takes a while each turn. It could easily be about an hour with a more experienced gamer group.

I see.how many do you usually play with? 

trentellingsen Supporter18 days ago | 1 point[-]

We usually play with 4 or 5 players.

Nice work guys, I was not shocked by Phil saying Root was #1, I was shocked at Trent saying Quacks was his!

You guys are getting better and better at these. Keep it up!

I have the exact same feeling about Wingspan. I always feel that if I could have 2 - 3 more actions to use in the last round I would feel so much better about my little bird collection.

If I had taken more time to think through my list, I think I would've changed one or two spots! Oh well, hopefully I'll have way more than 20 unique games to choose from next year haha

What would you have changed?

I'd place Skulk Hollow quite a bit lower, likely to #10. Simply because it's for two players only and I wouldn't be in the mood to play it so often.
