  1. I definitely prefer IRL if at all possible, but being able to play digital games with friends during the pandemic was a great blessing.

  2. I think that the next version of Catan we should get is "Summoners of Catan," a hybrid of Summoner Wars and Catan, due to both of them being number 10 and number 9.

    Now I wonder what the next version of Catan will be: make it out of gold, perhaps.

  3. Weirdly my first and only play of viticulture was on Tabletopia. But I'm not overly keen to play online as a standard option, it does work well to try out games before I buy them. Which would certainly save me money😅

  4. Well Chaz, on my TV, you kind of look 2D, so these things about dimensions are not always what they seem.

  5. Digital board games are extortionate when compared to video games at the same price point…

    Just because the physical version of your board game is £50, doesn't mean a cheaply made, animationless digitalised version of your game is worth 10+; looking at you spirit Island.

  6. I prefer physical, but having a digital option is great, considering many of my friends are not local. TTS is my preferred digital platform.

  7. Physical always over digital however I greatly digital and how much it's helped during the pandemic. I prefer TTS over most over platforms of digital games.

    Chaz thank you for your hard work on this episode 🙂

  8. My one and only experience with non'boardgame games is on my Xbox….Pandemic Help a lot with the memory lost rules.

  9. Physical over digital. Always. I just can't keep track of the game state when playing digitally. I suffer without spatial awareness.

    That being said, I've been playing the heck out of Summoner Wars and their app is pretty great.

  10. My regular game group just started meeting again, so I can get the physical rush / social interaction. I'd rather do physical but there are some many games that digital (Yucata and BGA) let me keep active between sessions. Both physical and digital are cool.(and digital lets me determine if I want to hunt for a physcial copy (which has worked for Voyages of Marco Polo, Murano, Lorenzo Il Magnifico,…)

  11. If i have to play on computer or console
    I play real videogames… Boardgame only on the table with friends

  12. What did we do to Adele to make her go all "1-V-all" on us? Yes, I have complained that radio stations play her songs too much, but I'm sure even Adele agrees with that statement. What have the rest of you done?

  13. Is it me or does he look alittle like Markiplier

  14. Chaz, I’d still invite you to game night. I’d call it Catan 4D … you play it over time, right? Edit. Rumor has it Adele is pretty interesting. Sorry, somebody had to say it.

  15. BGA is the place to play during these Pandemiccy times…

  16. Wait people made a game themed around basically fighting HAL 9000 and have a HUMAN play as the computer? That's just insane, if their was ever a game that demanded an Automated oponent it would be this. If they want a human to play as the oponent then go for the 'captain has gotten space-madness and is trying to kill the crew' plot.
