...we need a video playthrough; in English! Not only for the presentation, the set up or the instructions, but because I just love to see the game laid on a table!

Yes please! Someone please? ;-)

I haven't had the chance to play the game yet and I'm currently reading the rule book. I quite miss the input in form of video playthroughs (or even a review) that you normally get with an older game (or massively popular new games such as A Feast for Odin).

Videos really help me to understand a game. Because there is none, yet, I'm quite hesitant to play the first game with my husband. He is already wary of this game due to its sheer size (sigh) and I have to get our first game right to make it a pleasurable event for both of us.

The scripted introductory game performs this function. I suppose that there might be some mileage in videoing that run through, as some people are more visual than others. But I think that a video play through is perhaps less necessary than it is for other games because the run through is already included in the box.

I feel a bit strange about promoting myself but I'll be doing a playthrough probably within the next week

I had a little vote on my channel and Colonists clearly won! I was a bit worried at first but I played a 2 era game with my girlfriend at the weekend and everything seemed to click so quickly that I'm really looking forward to it now. I'd like to get a couple more games (and maybe even a full 4 era game) in before I make the video but it's coming!

Nice! I already watched some of your videos about Essen, but had not subscribed until now :-). I'll be looking forward to your video then.

Now we will all eagerly await your review/playthrough!

Hi everyone, it's going to take a little while for the video to show up on BGG but for now Era I is here:

https://youtu.be/sCypEY7nHJk

I'm probably going to do the other videos over the next few days to give me a bit of breathing room in between editing, this playthrough definitely twisted my brain thinking for two

Hope you enjoy!
