is a very persuasive man. Members of the run through guild have hemorrhaged money picking up games after watching his awesome videos.

Please add any missing items you bought, or thumbs up existing items you have bought.

The Gears! THE GEARS! What an awesome game this is, do you put workers out or take them back? Decisions abound! This is one of the earliest games Rahdo convinced me was worth picking up.

A classic, but one I would have overlooked without Rahdo's recent run through. So glad I didn't dismiss it as well, quickly became one of my favorites.

Admittedly, this was on my short list to pick up. But watching Rahdo's run through caused me to push it to the top of the list and I bought it shortly after.

I guarantee I would have passed this one up. Nothing about it would have captured my attention. Rahdo did his run through and I was shocked how compelling it looked. What a wonderful game!

A card game about fishing... who would have thought it'd be such a great four player game? Fortunately, Rahdo did and showed us. This is also the game that caused me to break my "no kickstarter" rule and I got the expansion.

The theme is wife-friendly, the gameplay is me-friendly, but is it too heavy for me to be able to persuade my other half to give it a try? One Rahdo video later... Hit BUY! (And yes, she has played it).

Morels was the first game that I purchased based on one of Richard's videos. It also happened to be the first video of his that I watched. Thus began a trend that doesn't seem to have an end.

I wasn't interested in this at all. All the other reviews for it left it looking bland and unappealing to me. Thank goodness Richard made a playthrough for it. As soon as I watched it I knew that it would be a game I would love. Of course, I bought it and it is now one of our favourite games.

I don't like long games.
I don't like overly complicated games.
I don't like Vlaada games.
I like maps.
So I had absolutely no interest in Through the Ages.

But then I watched Rahdo's video, and immediately I wanted to play TtA. After playing it once, I bought my own copy. Richard made it look so easy to play! And, in reality, it isn't nearly as complicated as it looked.

Now I have my eye on Mage Knight Board Game too, thanks to Rahdo.

I couldn't resist this, after watching Rhado's run-through. Unfortunately I have yet to get it to the table, but I eagerly anticipate the day. In all, I think Rhado has been responsible for 7 game purchases for myself, and I anticipate many more to come. (Lewis & Clark will likely be the next)

Thanks Rhado laugh

I learned about Richard because I bought this 3-FFFs-in-a-row game and even after reading the rules 3 times, I still couldn't figure out how it was played exactly. BGG to the rescue!
And there it was: Rahdo runs through ...
All of a sudden:
- the game looked so easy to play
- he made me want it to play so eagerly

I then discovered he had a geeklist and subscribed to it.


But the first one where pulled me over the fence was Canterbury. He made the game look so interesting and excitinfg,
I was lost ...

[of 45 eur that is].


He then did the Stefan Feld series - too late as I already owned most of them [I just bought Bora Bora, so I know how I will learn to play that one].


He was of great help with Shipyard. The game was unplayed on my shelf for almost a year ... but not for long after having being preperly educated.

Kickstarted Amerigo [Feld+dice tower: can not go wrong] and learned to play it with his video's: got worried that the game would take really long to play as it took him 40 minutes to play the first round. But we all know Jen is a very strong player too and he really wants to win his games against her.

Next buy he initiated was Shadows over the Empire.
I still have to play it and I am somewhat worried about the actions on the cards: though the cards are quite big [Dixit size], the text is NOT and players need to be able to read it easily. I expect that to be a challenge ...

So publishers: if you have a game that is up Richard's alley, send it to him. He will advertize it for you whistle

Maybe I should consider UNsubscribing to his geeklist to safegaurd the wallet.
But then again, I would probably miss on some great games that otherwise would stay under my radar.
