  1. Looks like a fun game. Just bought it online! Side note: where'd you get that shirt?!

  2. They should've done the pacman amigo design like that

  3. i just saw this pacman board game at Target and could not stop looking was pure nostalgia

  4. I love your shirt…where can I get one?

  5. That's a sweet game, I'm pretty sure Santa will bring one for me this X-mas and I can't wait

  6. Hey, man. I saw this game at Target too when I was out Christmas shopping and wanted to know if it was any good. This is the first one of your videos that I’ve ever seen, and I want to say that your planning, presentation, execution, and editing are all phenomenal. Thank you for the passion you put into this! God bless!

    PS, I’m definitely getting this game!

  7. I had been wondering what this was all about. Looks like some real thought and effort went into the creation of this game, and also into the video. Great review!

  8. How long would you say a round took? It looks like the actual game doesnt take too long

  9. I asked for this board game because of your review. I got it as an early Christmas present last night and I'm definitely impressed, and really enjoying it. Thanks a lot for the awesome review!

    It's worth getting this game just for the quality alone. Maybe it's just because I stick with cheapo ones, but I've bought a fair amount of monopoly, life, sorry, checkers, etc. board games through the years and they all seem way cheaper than they were in the 90s. This board game isn't nostalgic just because of the theme, but also because of the quality of all the pieces and stuff. Even the cardboard cutout ones are double sided and sturdy.

    The one disappointing thing is that there isn't more sounds. How cool would it be if there was a little piece in the board that you pushed to play that intro tune before rounds and stuff. I could always play it on my phone I guess.

  10. GenXGrownUp, I subscribed to you. Why does the game say it comes with 16 blue ghosts tokens, when there's 15 in the cardboard punch outs of the tokens? Did Buffalo Games lie to us about the amount of blue ghost pieces or not? I need answers. Also: have a good Christmas.

  11. Thanks for this video! My boys and I love your shirt…where did you purchase?

  12. Great review and it looks like a great game, but I am a fan of the old Pac-Man board game.

  13. Wow that is a whole lot of game. Maybe too much for my 6 and 4 yr olds to handle. I think i may hit up eBay and hunt down the original which I looked up and actually like it a lot.

  14. The opening theme song is great . Who sings it

  15. How the hell was the game like hungry hungry hippos?

  16. I prefer the 80s game to this. The pegs are a huge pain in the ass compared to marbles and the board fits awkwardly together.

  17. I just got this board game for Easter! 😀

  18. Giant pac man in the movie《PIXELS》in the year 2015.

  19. Dude this is a weird question, but I am building a pacman themed arcade cabinet.. do you think those round cut outs of fruits and ghost would fit inside an arcade button.. I would loveto use them as inserts for led buttons

  20. We just picked this up at Target today, and the kids are really excited to play it. Thank for the video.

  21. I saw this at Barnes & Nobles. I look this game up on your link to see if its worth buying for my family. It seems like is!

  22. nice, i made a cardboard version, simple and good

  23. The arcade board is already set up with dots for me.

  24. Saw this on amazon and I think I might buy it now.

  25. Thanks dude wasn't sure if i should get this game but i have made my choice thank you so much

  26. Great review. I received mine this morning imported from the Estates (couldn't find it in any european online shop). The shipping was a bit high, but the game itself was quite cheap, so it kinda compensate. I fell in love with this game since the first time I saw it, and I have to tell you that your review helped me to decide to buy it. I have the 80s Milton Bradley version, which I like despite its limitations (I had it as a kid too, so nostalgia factor as well). Anyway, I like the content of your channel so I subscribed. I love retrogames (both video games and board games) and you have very interesting content 🙂👍

  27. I am a really big fan of pac-man it’s so amazing for a classic game from the 1900s

  28. I've just got a amazing idea play the video game…less hassle

  29. I'm a boardgame collector (have nearly 200), and this was an easy buy. I own the 1982 version of Pac-Man as well. I agree they did a PHENOMENAL job on this game. It definitely needs more love and visibility than it is currently getting, and I'd love for the publisher to tackle other arcade classics like maybe Q-Bert. There is definitely a bit of wonkiness with some of the mechanics, but overall it's a wonderfully faithful game. My only nitpicks — 1. I'd love it if they included four blue "scared" ghosts, with unique color markings — like maybe red eyes and mouth for Blinky — for when Pac-Man eats a pellet. Even if it was just a mail-in add-on, it would really complete the game. 2. Standard rules can be pretty unforgiving. This should only be played with the arcade variant. 3. Likely no one will survive past orange, but it would have been fun to have tokens for all the fruit. Overall, this is the best adaptation of a video game to board game I have ever seen, outside of Gears of War.

  30. Well I might wanna buy that board game, but not for play. I rather keep the boards and other stuffs in the box but take out Pac-Man and ghosts and put them on my working desk.

  31. Here in Mexico it's on Amazon for $ 10! But since it was so cheap, I had doubts if it was worth it. This video helps me decide, so I brought it! Thank you.

  32. I got this for 6 bucks on amazon after watching this video, thanks!!!

  33. I saw the 80s one in a charity shop the other day!

  34. I only just got this and wanted how the hell do u set up the pegs

  35. I recently bought the Pacman Monopoly board game with the mini lcd arcade

  36. I just want to be sure but when you plug all the pegs in for the first time is it really loud?
