awesome. my worry is it goes it's fathers way (Quarriors) where the expansions kinda are so self contained that if you play with more than one it is so watered down that you lose a lot. thanks for the fantastic video - hit everything I wanted in one!

When you moved the points chips, it didn't sound like card or plastic. It really sounded like casino style chips?

Not quite; they're just thick cardboard. Maybe they'll do a collector's edition one day. =)

Normally the video quality is great but the lighting in the tutorial section was way off today. Very washed out.

Yeah I don't know what happened there. I didn't know how bad it was until I sat down to edit. Um...listen to the overview without looking at it maybe?

Now I will argue, good sir,  Paul F. Tompkins' Speakeasy seems to handle it quite well, AND is quite entertaining.

Any chance you can do a weekly segment (just a suggestion for weekly) where you look at older games. You often refer to older games in a sentence and it would be good to know more why you feel that way. For example yo mention you don't like Whitechapel - a review of that would be awesome to have to understand why.

This is the game if Fluxx (no strategy, goal changing) and Love Letter (simplification, microgames, light) had a child.

Yep, it is. Well, technically it's "Oona Cat". ("Oona" being shortened variation of "tUNAfish brain".)

He sends his greetings, by the way.

Story
Introduction
Robert started life as a comparatively fast sperm. At age 13, no longer a sperm, he got his first computer and broke it. He has spent much of his adult life devoted to helping others not to break computers; first as an IT Pro and now as an amazing software developer.


His work in helping others has earned him numerous Microsoft ALM MVP awards & many opportunities to speak at events. He is most proud of his son, who Robert has tricked into playing Xbox under Robert's profile, so he can increase his Gamer Score while he is helping others or building apps. His website is www.sadev.co.za
