    any chance for a co-op episode? My family really likes them as we do nto
    compete, but work together…

    I whole-heartedly agree with the need for a co-op episode.

    Surprised you guys aren’t linking the review videos, either via annotations
    and/or the video description.

    well i think co-op is really a genre in itself now… and these or
    Battlestar or Dungeon Run are just variation in that genre.

    Love your videos and your other suggestions, but I have to disagree with
    Seasons as a “family” game. If your family like medium weight “strategic”
    games than I think it’s a great choice, but I know with my family just
    learning the rules themselves would probably be too complicated. Add to
    that the fact that it can get extremely brain burny as you’re trying to
    puzzle out how to accomplish your goals in the game can make it a bit
    intimidating. Great game but might not be great for everyone.

    Does King of Tokyo’s play length extend somewhat when you add the
    expansion? I love the base game, but it all ends all too soon!

    I don’t really think a co-op episode is needed…the best choices for
    co-ops are few and obvious: Pandemic Ghost Stories Flash Point Defenders of
    the Realm Lord of the Rings (CG) …done!

    Well, another good cooperative game for a family is Castle Panic. But,
    there must be more out there.

    Ah, yes, I wasn’t really focusing on the family part…so Ghost Stories,
    Defenders, and LoR are not good choices for families…all three are more
    suited to hardcore gamers…Castle Panic is a good pick, though I don’t
    think it is the best co-op out there!

    Nice wet stained shirt Tom above and below the “H”, 00:57. Not trying to be
    rude, just noticing…..looks bad when you are making a video for Family
    Board Games.
