  1. I would not consider #9 to be a board game as there is no board to play the game on. Also, Rise of Augustus, Smash Up & Dominion looks more like card games than board games. As a matter of fact there are no boards to play on. What is up with this Top 10 Board Games when so many of them have no board to play on? Hence the term Board Games. At least your #1 on this list was an actual board game.

    Anyhow, In my opinion, Chess and Monopoly are the two greatest board games of all time. They both require a great deal of strategy with Chess beating out Monopoly in the strategy category. As a matter of fact, Chess beats out ALL board games when it comes to strategy.
    The thing that Monopoly beats out Chess on is the fact that Chess is just a 2 person game whereas Monopoly can play up to 8 players which makes it more exciting when it comes to wheeling and dealing. Both of these great games have withstood the test of time.

  2. Are board games a big industry in America ? Would board games include stuff like dungeons and dragons. Also was it big in the 80s and slowly declined in popularity once video games came out? Genuinely interested. These seem pretty cool

  3. when Rise of Augustus came up I had to quit video. One of the worst and most random games I have ever played, i cannot believe this was even nominated for Spiel des Jahres.

    I just don’t think I can put much value into a list of someone who has that game in his top 10 of all time. No Offenes, Everyone has his own taste and That‘s cool, i just don’t think the Rest of the List Will match mine.

  4. Hey there – – Here is my Top 10 of all time:

    10 Saint Perersburg (Second Edition)
    9              Viticulture: Tuscany Essential Edition
    8              1846: The Race for the Midwest
    7              Black Angel
    6              Lisboa
    5              Imperial Struggle
    4              Food Chain Magnate
    3              Brass: Birmingham
    2              Power Grid
    1              Great Western Trail

  5. The granddaddy of deck builders is called MAGIC THE GATHERING!!!!!

  6. Okay, I felt like after I saw your first games on your list that I will not write anything … Everyone has their tastes and most of these games are actually really good but top 10 of all time? really? Is he new in this hobby? But when in the end you talked about "serious gamers" in a video with these games as your top 10 of all time, my fingers started to battle in the air for sure xD

    It is clear that with this list you mostly like to play with your family and are new to the hobby and like to just cuddle and chill with a game without having to be serious at all?

    As I said, almost all are good but the game of these that I think is the best of all time would not even get into my 40 best.

    Do not understand this list at all but I liked the video anyway and thank you for your time but really.. dont talk about "serious gamers" and have a top 10 of all time with these games… xD

  7. cosmic encounter sure, but you need to branch out in your games.

  8. What about Monopoly? The Game of Life, Chutes and Ladders, Candy land?

  9. What is that game in the bottom left corner of the video with that steampunk looking woman with the orange hair?

  10. Whoa, Smash Up on a top10 list… I respect and understand that we all have different tastes, but this is so different that it makes me feel weird inside 🤣 it's on my top5 worst games of all time!

  11. Thanks for the introduction,Nice games! we just produced a lot of board games,but did not play them much 🙂
