  1. From what you're saying, the game reminds me a lot of Eldritch Horror. Not sure if that's what they were going for…
    Edit: The 'british accent' thing I first noticed watching Yachtzee's (Zero Punctuation) review of Animal Crossing, where he kept talking about taking items to the 'pawn shop'. Good times.

  2. Speaking of Rosenberg games, if you like Stardew Valley the video game wouldn't Caverna be a nice choice? You can farm, build your home, mine ores, tend animals and go on adventures. The game is also rather open ended, allowing you to do pretty much what you want and the tone is quite relaxed overall, without putting too much pressure on the players.

    Agricola, on the other hand, would be something like Don't Starve. :I

  3. I loved the note on your neighbors likely careers as drill reviewers. That was amazing. I just watched the wingspan review so that while home renovation thing was both relatable and hilarious. Sorry that it makes editing a slog though!

  4. No, seriously, who asked for a stardew valley boardgame?

  5. 4:35 Hold on, isn't it 16 objectives? First you need to get the hearts to unlock the other objectives

  6. I wonder how much this would be improved of you went for 2 years instead of 1. Just reshuffle the season cards again and keep going. It would give you more time to tackle the objectives and lessen the RNG. Plus the game has sort of and end at the end of the second year

  7. With the British accent, I can't tell the difference between "Stardew Valley" and "Stodgy Valley" lol.

  8. Late to the party but I play this often solo. The storage in box sucks so I bought a mini hardware/ craft sorter box thing to solve that. There’s a sentiment that the feel of Stardew Valley the game isn’t emulated well in the board game and with regard to that I’d say house rules are the way to go. Which I know will turn folks off. But I thoroughly enjoy the game and the board game because I play both how I want to play them. House rules and stacking the deck a certain way, making sure certain items will be available, introducing dice mitigation, extending the seasons all help to the make a play through pleasant.

    I think if you love Stardew valley you’ll also love the board game provided you give yourself the freedom to make up your own way around the sometimes stressful variance 🙂

  9. Once again shut up and sit down has talked me out of getting a boardgame based off a video game

  10. i had such a hard time paying attention to Quinns once Matt joined

  11. Even hiding a dead body you still wear a mask respecting COVID restrictions. You're a man of principles.

  12. As someone who samples soil for a career, I can confirm that we don't really use plastic bags, and the standard practise is for Amber glass jars…. Also great video having watched a few times since release

  13. We bought it as soon as they announced it. We've played a few times already and have had fun each time. We even finished it on "hard mode".

  14. Ooh I love coming across a great channel by accident

  15. My wife and I played this for the first 2 times yesterday and had a blast. I agree with pretty much all of Quinns' criticisms, there is a lot of randomness and you can feel totally screwed due to no fault of your own. In game #2 we actually did feel like that: terrible luck, getting Stones every turn and no Ore until like Fall, a Legendary Fish goal, we thought we had no chance of winning but were still enjoying giving it our best shot. In a shocking twist, we had some ridiculous luck in the last 3-4 turns and managed to complete our last goals on the final action, it was insane!

    Who is the game for? I don't know, if you like the Stardew aesthetic, collecting items and upgrading yourself, relying on luck, and having a chilled out time in a game you very well may lose, then you might have a great time like me. One thing I do like is how easy it is to adjust the difficulty if you want to; just remove some objectives (or add more if you think it's too easy??), you could even add a 2nd year of season cards if you wanted. Some may say that's not the real game, but if you're having fun who cares? Playing the game soundtrack at the same time is also a nice touch 😀

  16. just ao yall know, youre allowed to add more cards to the deck, adding way more turns to the game, and also can trade out a comm center objective for free if its impossible during the gamestate
