  1. would you recommend it for every 2 players?

  2. So.. how dangerous would playing this game with your girlfriend be? (You know what I mean.)

  3. Will there or are there expansions that make the game for more than 2 players?

  4. you have really nice eyes tonight :DDD
    u guys r geniouses

  5. Thanks so much for this review. It really turned my wife and I on to this game, and we are having so much fun.

  6. Only 30 seconds into the video and there is already so much sexual tension.

  7. before i bother watching this video will my folks tell me if this game is straight bullshit

  8. This is great video of this game and was so entertaining. Helped me decide to buy this game because it was as interesting as I was hoping but other videos weren’t able to express to me. Thanks!

  9. FYI, the game is on clearance at walmart.com right now. I guess it wasn't as popular as they had hoped. But that means the game is only $12 right now. It's definitely worth more than that, so go for it before it's too late.

  10. Matt has a wife? See, this whole time was under the impression that he and Quinns were, ummmm, a thing.

  11. My gf takes this game too personal lol

  12. Is this game too meta to play with your significant other? Is it going to spiral outside of the table and be kind of dangerous (serious question)?

  13. Cooperative vs Coercive. I like the distinction in terms of gaming.

  14. 7:07 I wonder how long the excuse to take off the shirt was planned for

  15. The "We won a trip to Italy!" comment didn't age well, did it.

  16. Quinns: Try to be a little more creative with your choice of character next time, please. Role-playing doesnt neccessarily mean, you need to play as yourself, you know? ;P

  17. I have started a rival board game review channel called Sit Up & Shut Down. It's a bit more formal but also completely inactive.

  18. I’m playing the ‘Married with children and mortgage’ expansion.

  19. This game is gender neutral? A great game for a girls pyjama party

  20. Just ordered this to play with the misses

  21. Confirmed: these guys all tangoing together

  22. I splurged and bought this straight from the publisher only based on your highly enthusiastic review. And I told them that in the space for "note to seller" to give you a nice little shout out.

  23. So this petty much Mystery Date, for aduits

  24. This review is absolutely incredible and should also be seen outside the boardgame community.

  25. Discarding “Destiny”… that’s deep.

  26. Did Mat just ejaculate and then start eating it?

  27. "I'm an internet celebrity who's jealous, insecure and disorganized!"
    … So you're an internet celebrity-

  28. We need a Fog of Love on Tabletop Simulator livestream! 😀

  29. 2:46 As I saw him for the first time, it was like the whole world disappeared into the background, overshadowed by his presence, and all I could see and sense was him, he took up all of my attention, all of my sight. His being blotted out the sun and the skies, his enormity; crushing all in his path into dust. His voice shattered mountains and with each step towards me the ground shook as if pummeled by meteors and shaken by the pull of foreign astral bodies. He was the biggest man I had ever seen.

  30. If you were going to open this up to spectators, what house rules or clarifications would you implement? 

    I'm thinking it would be fun to offer spectators the chance to play walk-ons. "Can I take your order?" "We are overbooked, would you be willing to accept vouchers for a layover in Paris?" etc. 

    And I think it could be fun to have a phase of 2-person decisions or plot points that are impacted by the scoring of spectator votes. Offer each spectator (ideally 2 other's, I think, so they can play as well) a pingpong paddle with a red side and a green side. And let them weigh in the score of certain decisions. Or give each spectator a single-use rewind plot option, so the players can take things in another direction. 

    This of course would be very subjective, so I'm trying to think of consistent criteria for voting, such as "I voted red because I think he betrayed his character depiction" or "the story headed in an unsatisfying direction for me" or "the players are trying to make it work, but it's not coming naturally or 'it's not in the cards' for the characters" But of course, it could be more in the spirit if spectators had their own reasons that need not be justified, for their own folly.

  31. Cant watch their reviews anymore. They just throw out simile after simile instead of just reviewing the game.

  32. Oh, this is the perfect house warming gift for a young couple!

  33. This sounds like a great game, but I can't imagine asking anyone to play it with me.

  34. Uh oh, 3 minutes in and they seem to really like it. This game is screwed!

  35. This video came in perfect while looking for a Christmas present for my gf, could be the end of the relationship…

  36. Found this in Goodwill today, after 2 years of putting off picking it up. And I have to say immediately, the side loading box is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BOX OUT OF EVERY GAME I OWN

  37. The thing you guys have over other board game review channels — even really good ones — is that you really get into your emotional responses to the games you play. This is great, because board games are a social AND a tactile activity, so therefore feelings and emotions are important. 🙂

    Board gamers tend to be really analytical people, and I know you two are also that, but making your reviews in this way ensures that you don't overlook some of the very real joys of board gaming that keep gamers coming back to the hobby for more. ❤️

    (You're also really damn funny, so there's that too. 👍🏻)

  38. This seems like a game that would be really hard to find the right people to play with

  39. It's definitely at least in part the weed in my system, but god damn that cake at 5:01 looks tasty.

  40. Just a word of caution: Sometimes this game feels TOO real. I played it with my wife and the game generated an argument we'd just had and it pretty hard to laugh off at the time.
