this game is getting so much buzz. I like the game the only thing i hate is that it is utterly impossible to find in a store a.k.a. at retail pricing. I cant even try the game without spending double or triple the price.

I think Wizkids vastly underestimated the demand for it and are printing more money copies as fast as possible. It will be much easier to find at sane prices soon.

Here's my one rules question - we probably did this wrong. When you roll a question mark symbol, which can function as any energy type, do you have to choose and assign an energy symbol to it as part of dice resolution, or can you wait until you need it later during attacks/defense, i.e. save it as a wild, and be able to use it to activate basically any Global ability that exists that turn? I think that way makes the question marks way too strong, but I couldn't find an answer on the game forums even after our play session.

104 minute video for a 15 minute game?!? I don't have time to watch now, but I'm curious about this length.

You can save it as a wild.

I really enjoyed how you showed how many decision points there are in this game. It's not typically a brain-burner but you showed there is some thought processes involved.

Also, unless I missed it, the ? can only be assigned to an energy side, not a sidekick.

Well, they do the rules, a basic game, some discussion about boosters, then a longer length game. Due to the costs of the characters they picked, it took an hour for the second game. Most of my games typically run about 45 minutes with the 8/20 setup, so it's not too far off IMO.

This game looks so fun. I don't think it's out in Australia? I think pre-orders are up online but I'm not sure... when... they will get around to it. :\ hmmm. I might put one in anyway. I looks like it's really hard to get at the moment.

I love the post-credits scene! Haha. Congrats guys! And may I say how much you all seemed to be enjoying yourself in this video!!

Nice video! My 8 year old son and I absolutely love this game. It seems like everyone that I introduce to it loves it as well. There are just so many strategies and options to choose from, both during and prior to the game. Wizkids better get these into stores soon.

I have never really gotten into collectible card games, but I really like how cheap booster packs are for this one. It makes it an easy reward for my son when he does well in school, or completes chores. And as a hidden bonus I get to enjoy the reward right along with him.

I watched the last 15 minutes I skipped earlier, because someone said there was a funny after the credits.

I'm glad Lincoln and Dave ended up winning, because they missed 2 opportunities to use Thor and capture Hulk to end the game either of those two previous turns.

Again, I enjoyed it very much.

I liked how Ogre was stalking quietly in the background with every cut to Aaron/Nikki - hopefully se2ep9?

I realized somewhere in there that they had totally forgotten about that Thor ability, but I wasn't gonna remind them! devil They did get their deserved win anyway. Thanks for watching!

And the gigantic Tantive IV for X-Wing. 2 grossly oversized products just lurking back there.

They played the game as 4-player team battle. Any game that has an element of cooperative play in it adds to a significant increase of table talk about strategy and counter-strategy. Thus the length. They also play multiple rounds and then have a discussion about the game following the game play and a rules explanation preceding the play. Not too shocked at the length given all of that...

So my daughter and I were sitting around watching this and my daughter got a puzzled look on her face and I asked her why. Seems, she couldn't quite place Dave, but she had seen him somewhere before and it was driving her nuts.

Finally about 10 minutes later she grabbed the laptop and started watching Good Luck Charlie, and she said, HA! I knew I knew who that was and she handed it to me and sure enough there Dave was managing the Kwikki Chikki.



So Dave, you've got a fan for both tv shows and web shows.

Can everyone else only watch in 240p? Don't mean to sound like a jerk, but that's never been the case for the other videos... just curious.

Thanks, GameNight guys and gal!

That's odd. It was available in resolutions up to 1080p. Need to look into it.

Thanks for the note.

Weird, I just tested the page in Internet Explorer 11 and it does all of the resolutions, but I still have only 280p on Chrome. I'll have to see if I can figure out what is up.
