  1. This is by far the funniest SU&SD review you guys have done! I mean the opening with the massaging and grape feeding to cut away to the guys doing it… the massaging and the grape feeling I mean.

    Then Quinns inappropriately starts touching up the guy, followed with the oyster comment was just a classic. You guys love to flying too close to the sun.

    Then there's the fisting comment, the sexy slaves comment (and who doesn't want one of those?) and Paul's "Spurtacus" was just the perfect summary of the show.

    I think you guys had more fun putting this together than doing the game review itself. And then there was the very ending of the review. Well… let's not go there! You naughty naughty boys, mother will NOT be pleased (nor your wives). lol 😂

  2. My most vivid memory of this game is a fight where I ended up with the strongest gladiator in the game with pretty good equipment, and I got into a fight with another player that had pretty weak gladiators. He put his weakest gladiator into the fight and didn't use any equipment. Fight starts, I roll up and roll my massive handful of attack dice, only to get 1s and 2s (a full miss) on all of them including rerolls. He attacks, rolling 6s and 5s, with my defense dice all coming up as 1s and 2s again including rerolls. Took a bunch of damage, but my gladiator was so much better than his that I still had more dice. Next attack comes. Again it comes up all 1s and 2s for me. He attacks, again with 6s and 5s, with my highest defense roll being a 3. Bunch more wounds, and suddenly my character is nearly dead. Needless to say, I end up losing and yield. I try to bribe the host, but the rest of the table teams up to solicit an execution of my top gladiator, knowing that it is unlikely that I will be so unlucky in a future fight. I went from having a strong position in that game to being nearly in last place because I was so financially ruined by that fight. Most of the rest of the table also lost a bunch of money on that because everyone had bet on me, which caused the game to take much longer than it would have otherwise…

  4. One of th ebest BG ever. Even if you do not like the art design of the game or if you do not like the series – the amount of drama, intrigue and excitement is amazing. Love it. But i guess it depends a lot on the ppl you are playing with.

  5. Mow your lawn!!! Just playing, love you guys

  6. Funnily enough, it's still unknown whether the "pollice verso" or "turned thumb" was a thumbs up, thumbs down, or horizontal thumb. So your waffling is an accurate reflection of the academic uncertainty.

  7. But… What about the War of the Ring review? You promised! 😮

  8. You're easily my favourite YouTube channel, but that joke where you don't know words happened in almost every sentence. This was utterly exhausting to watch. It was like talking to a college student.

  9. I was like "oh yay paul and quinns in the same location"
    then I realized this is a reupload from the website 🙁

  10. when he turns the page at 5:35, it looks like a picture of quinns in a brown tunic…until it doesn't

  11. Some old thing coming from a quiet corner. Its ok. It could have been perfect, with some updated – more or less short- information about the game + expansions.

  12. What fresh faced young men with no idea of the extent of the great board gaming saga awaiting them.

  13. I have the Xmen reskin of the game which is decent as well. Aside from the game using mutants instead of gladiators the battles are semicooperative missions against supervillains where typically everybody in the mission will get something if the group wins but there will be one MVP in the mission (such as the person who did the most total damage or who beat the most minions, etc) who will get a bonus. Otherwise it’s essentially the same game – bid on mutants for your school, play intrigue type cards against each other then do a mission. All the schools and mutants have unique powers, which is cool, and the game is cutthroat and reasonably fun but can drag a bit like the review says.

    So if you’re interested in the mechanics but prefer Xmen to Roman gladiators the reskin might be worth a look.
