  1. I would love the collectors edition but didn't know about this game until it was too late …

  2. Hi Rodney me and the hubby are in debate on the cards such as woodcarver. It says you can score a point for each bit of wood, up to 3. Does this mean 3 total. Or can you put 3 wood on and then when reactivated during game play add another 3 and so on.

  3. Thanks! What the " may noy be used with any other card playing ability" that is written on the innkeeper card you show at 13:00 means?
    Also- if i pass at the autumm and someone uses by building- do i get the 1 point?

  4. Yet again, you suckered me into another great game Rodney! Lol thanks and keep up the great work!

  5. How is the collectors edition different from the original version besides the price? Is there a game difference (or new rules) or just updated art? What is different?

  6. For Rodney, ir anyone who can answer, if I play ranger (either free or by cost) and place a worker on inn, am i able to build another on same turn???

  7. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to watch this channel due to really crazy and horrible personal life stuff (but no worries! Things are going SO well now!) and it’s so heart warming to see that my favorite board game channel is still going! Thank you so much for making these videos, been a fan since 2015 at least and you helped me find some wonderful games and I always appreciated your suggestions. Was curious about this one and was so glad to see you had a video on it!

    Anyways, just wanted to say a big thank you for helping me through my darkest point a few years ago and so happy to see you still here on YouTube. Cheers!! 🌟

  8. Smooth closing of that box at the end of the video! Thanks for this video! And as usual—it was a joy to watch!

  9. Thanks for this great video! It made me buy the game. 🙂

  10. So glad the Dutch version finally was released. Although playing games in English is not so much harder than playing in your mother language, I think playing the game now has more depth due to the comprehension when reading the cards. ( I hope I wrote this correct)
    Anyway, nice videos to watch and always a pleasure to see how much joy you bring extra to the game.

  11. Hey Rodney, quick question: cards such as the crane and simular card effects, do you already need the resources to qualify to build before discount?

  12. Was so excited to buy this but it’s sold out everywhere 🙁

  13. When you buy a construction card and you also have the matching critter, do you place it right away or do you have to wait for your next turn?

  14. Rodney: the most humble player at the table goes first

    Me: don’t worry about it kev, you be the first player
    Kev: okay

  15. Question: so once the first person passes (thus ending the game for that person) the rest of the players continue playing… and they may take more than one remaining turn? This Looks like a GREAT game, and I just purchased it, but doesn't it it seem rather anti-climactic (or boring for the first player) if the other players get more than one last turn?

  16. I absolutely love that you used actual blueberries!!!!

  17. What is the 8 sided die in the box for? I got the regular edition of the game. No gold coins or anything. But I do have the die

  18. Great explantion. Just acquired this game so, as always, first port of call. Thanks.

  19. Just purchased this game and, once again, you've helped me understand the rules perfectly.
    Good job Rodney and thank you.

  20. Love the look and play of this game. Thank you for always explaining it so thoroughly.

  21. used this as a teaching aide for my game tonight, thanks Rodney!

  22. Got this for xmas and have been yearning to try it out. Rules seem extremely intuitive and the game is gorgeous. Thanks for the video!

  23. Rodney, does your hair have a bluish tint?

  24. No offense to all the other amazing contributors to the channel, but Rodney, you have my heart when it comes to tutorials. Excellent structure, timing, presentation, and just the right amount of detail in context. Always enjoy your overviews thoroughly. Ordered this today because I've been thinking about it for a while; then I saw it on DT's top ten solo games list with Liz, Zee, and Mike and realized I could enjoy this just as much solo. Awesome job, can't wait to get playing this beautiful game!!

  25. Keep up the awesome quality of videos Rodney! Best in the business 😉

  26. Came here from the latest Everdell KS campaign. I have watched many of your channels other How-to's, only now realizing I was un-sub'ed. Fixed that now 😎Hope everything is going well for you on PEI!

  27. Damn it, why did I watch this… I'll have to back the all in collector edition in KS.

  28. As someone who is thinking of backing the games re-release this was great. I'm slightly confused by the meadow draw do you need to pay for it straight away and place it or can you just pick it up and hold onto it? Also is it very difficult to the tree up? I've had games before with 3d components that were a nightmare. Thanks

  29. Just the nicest dude in the world, thanks Rodney! You've added some strong box spinning to your list of talents I see! :D!

  30. Trying to figure out a first player in a Canadian household must take forever!

  31. thanks for the useful video
    one question, please
    From where you get the holder for coins and resources?
    thanks again

  32. This game is so beautiful had trouble concentrating, one question though whats the benefit in passing early? it would seem you can gain better cards or points the more you play

  33. Love your videos! Will you make one of Spirit Island soon? 😀

  34. I just entered the board game world and bought this game. Love your video.now I understand how to play the game. Thank you..😊😊

  35. Thanks for a great video! Played it for the first time and I loved it. Watching this too see if we played it right.

  36. Hello there!! Congratulations for the way you explain those marvelous board games!! I am a fan!!
    I just have question about Ever Tree card on Everdell… it says worth 1 point for each purple prosperity card in my city. Then it says Ever Tree can grant 1 of any Critter for free. I just dont understand what it means. Could you explain that to me? Thank you for your time

  37. Thanks, great video! Just bought the game and this will help a lot. One question about the part at 11:25, is it correct that you are not allowed to have another innkeeper anyway because it’s a unique critter, or is that only for constructions? Thanks!

  38. I just played a few rounds with the collectors edition. Just wondering if you will recommend adding in those 28 new cards?

  39. I came for the board games, stayed for the box flips hahaha 😆👍👍

  40. Will you make a How To Play for Everdell's Expansions someday?

  41. Thank you for your video Rodney! I very quickly understood how to setup and play this game. As my groups' rules explainer, any resource to make the process easier is a godsend. Keep on making these!
