I, like I assume many of you here, began my journey diving into the depths of BGG by watching a pleasant, friendly, articulate man with a beard (and sometimes a costume) explain a board game in video form.

With all of these fantastic video reviewers doing their thing here on BGG, it occurred to me that it might be nice to hear stories about the godfather of all board game video reviewers.

I would love this geeklist to be a collection of stories about how you first came to "know" Scott...the first video of his that you saw, your favorite video of his, if you've ever had the pleasure of playing with him....anything!


Thanks for everything you've done and continue to do Scott!!!

As a newcomer to the hobby, I was simply unaware of the staggering breadth of games I was about to discover.
Sure, I knew about TtR, Carc, and Pandemic...I was an expert on "German" or "designer" games!!!

The one thing I knew was that I loved board games (I always had), and that I wanted to find some games that I knew my girlfriend would want to play with me. So, on a whim, I googled "pillars earth board." Went to the youtube results, and clicked on the first video.

I was instantly hooked. Not just on the game, and the components, and the wonderful art, (and that awesome Cathedral! you don't even need it for the game, and look how AWESOME it is!!!) but with Scott's friendly nature, easy style, and quirky sense of humor.

I watched the video, and at the end he referred me to a link where I could see more of these types of videos. So I went there.

WHAT?!?! There are 70 of these??

Needless to say I clicked, and clicked, and clicked some more.


My life, not just my board game life, has not been the same since!

Thank you, Scott!!!

Just this week, this review helped me decide I want this game. And anytime I want to get my husband to watch an instructional video about a game I want to get him to try, Scott's videos are always a go-to if there's an episode about the game in question. So thank you, Scott!

Over 4 years ago I had a facebook account, but I thought it wasn't all that great. So one day I started looking on Youtube to see what was there, and I thought, what does Youtube have on board games?

There was this guy named Scott who made a video on Shear Panic. It looked like a super game, and I started watching his other videos. He mentioned boardgamegeek.com on several of them.

My gaming life has never been the same.

Thank You, Scott!!!!

1.) This was only second in laughter generated to Downtime Town's Space Hulk song.

2.) Thanks for teaching me how to pronounce Agricola right.

3.) I totally picked-up Santiago on Tanga because of you.

I totally feel like I'm not doing justice to Scott Nicholson here, because there's so much more... but those three stand-out solidly.

I was just getting back into the hobby and saw this game on BGG and picked it up. I was never good at reading rules, so when I saw there was a video on it I checked it out.

Ever since then I had BGWS bookmarked and checked often to see what else came along.

I got to meet Scott at a WBC a couple years back and got to thank him personally for teaching me Agricola. Without his video I'd still be reading that rulebook.

I had heard a lot of talk about how Die Macher is supposed to be the ultimate when it comes to non-wargames. Strategy, complexity, depth. A long and fulfilling brain burner.

I found a set of rules online but couldn't really get the concept together in my head.

Then I found a link to Scott's hour-long video. "An hour? Well, that's less than the first time I read through the Squad Leader rules."

It was a thing of beauty. I immediately ordered a copy of the reprint. And every time I've played since has been a great, even memorable time.

Thanks, Scott.

I first saw Scott's review of Agricola on Youtube in 2009. It became my first Euro-game, and was actually nearly the entire reason I began "serious" board gaming in the first place. It was his lighthearted review of Agricola that did not leave me intimidated, but instead open to trying more complex games. I couldn't thank you enough, Scott!

Just shortly after my journey had begun with Setlers and TTR, I decided that I wanted to know what was so great about the #1 game (at the time). I figured that if this guy can invest countless hours in putting one of these videos together, I sure as heck can sit down and watch one from beginning to end. I am glad I did. Thanks Scott!

I (quite by happenstance) stumbled upon Scott's video of this little card game. I was immediately struck by the clever game play and scoring mechanism. Little did I figure that this is CLASSIC Knizia, after all...

Anyway, I found a link on YouTube for his first episode #101 - the one where he has stacks and stacks of interesting games and goes through them by category. After that, I found my way upon THIS website and everything has been all downhill from there.

Than you Scott!

The first video that I remember watching was about this wonderful game. I was being reintroduced to boardgames and my mind was being blown by what I was discovering. I believe this was one of Scott's earlier videos and one were he sat down and interviewed the designer. I was so intrigued by the game that I decided I had to have it. I eventually did have the opportunity to play the original and just last year I purchased the remake which I play whenever I get the chance. I went on to watch all of Scott's videos and most of them I have watched several times. I still follow Scott though his various projects and posts and somewhat envy his success and the focus of his work. On another note - Scott just seems to be a really very sincere and friendly person. I recall him mentioning at one point that his cat had died suddenly and I could just feel his heart break. When my cat died a few years back I remembered that so I sent him an email telling him of my loss. He responded in a heart felt way and I really appreciated it. The internet is an amazing thing and I feel that on a certain level I know Scott. I'd enjoy sitting down and experiencing a game of Inca Empire with him. Thanks Scott for all of your hard work. It has certainly had an impact on my gaming life.

This one almost shouldn't count since while it has a BGWS video, Scott himself didn't review it (he was in the process of moving at the time, I think). I was in the market for something "epic".

This game is now the first of what I call the "fearsome foursome" of coffin box games that currently reside under my bed (since no shelf can contain their "awesomeness").

PS--Starcraft, Descent and Runewars.

A computer store in a small town had an advertisement for 45% off board games. I wasn't surprised that there wasn't much of interest there. However, one game caught my attention: 1830 Railways and Robber Barons. Remembering it was way down on my wish list, I figured I'd grab the deal.

Little did I know what I was getting into! I had no knowledge of 1830 or the whole 18XX series, and I needed help before my first game. Running to BGG for help, I found a link to BGWS Episode 46 - 18XX.

I wasn't too sure about what kind of video I was watching based on the intro, but I stuck with it and found an extremely helpful overview of the game series, and was even more excited to get into my new purchase of 1830.

This was a great introduction to an epic game series and an epic video series on games!

I too followed Scott frantically.
But then I learned that even the Godfather can be wrong. But to err is human so I can forgive the RoR slip up.

Jokes aside, I have always appreciated Scott's emphasis on the fact that we are all different. Our taste, interests and personal reference are often all weighted in when we make judgements in our everyday life, even in boardgaming, and that's a lesson I think we all should bear with us as one of his greatest legacies.

Although I have at least tried to play every game Scott made a video for, this is one of the first that swayed me to get deeper in the hobby when I was starting. Really nice and light game, and a ton of fun.
Funny enough, we just finished painting our copy

Scott's contribution to the community was amazing and unparalleled so far. I am glad to see his sabbatical has proven to be so interesting!

Scott did one of his quick In Play reviews of this completely unknown game, which caused me seek out a review copy of F3 (For Fame & Fortune). It's an amazing gem of a game for anyone who has friends that like Poker. I have bitterness towards Poker because an old gaming group of friends often chose Poker over a wholesome Euro...

But this game is something else. It really needs to be played for money (or at least poker chips), instead of being scored for just points. This is still one my favorite games I have played this year!

Scott is also largely responsible of my "dabblings" with video reviews.

So blame him!
