There's nothing wrong with silly randomness! That's why balderdash is great.

Wow... consistently brilliant.
Excellent work Tom.
Thank you.

Holly is stealing the show.
This is the only thing game-related that my wife will watch, and only because Holly is such a cutie (no offense Tom).


Goa: You mentioned at the end that you wouldn't teach this game to new folks. This should get underlined. It's a difficult game to grasp, even for gamers.

Colosseum: This has been on my wish list, but I bumped it up in my wish list rankings after this episdoe.

w00t! Go Tom, and Holly! You're reviewing machines!

What's the release schedule been so far, 1 or 2 reviews per day? They're only short segments, but well done and entertaining. There's a significant amount of prep and focus needed, really, to distill the amount of information down to what's significant. Especially since you've limited yourself to 10 minutes per 5 reviews.

Kudos, sir!

Small little detail, Tom: On the website listing, you have Richard Garfield listed as the designer of Goa, when it should be Rüdiger Dorn.

EDIT: Now that I look again, Power Grid is wrong, too. You might want to doublecheck the designers and publishers. Something got mixed up.

Sorry Tom did you discuss some games in there or something? I really was too busy watching Holly.

Gotta get me a Holly microbadge.

I can't quite work out why Colosseum is so overlooked either. I suspect it is too much game for the regular DoW 'Gateway' crowd and the DoW name turns 'hard core' gamers off from looking.

Is it just me, or does this sound totally creepy?

This site needs a forum where we can put the faux offended so we can ignore them.

Yep, i'm now begging for a Holly microbadge.

As soon as she gets rid of that co-host of hers we are on to a winner

Have to disagree on this one. I won my first game of Goa 4 players with one other newbie. Thing is I usually do very poorly first game of anything.
I taught the game to a newbie who played a 3 player game and he came in second. I think it depends on how much one can get into the game, or one's interest level, that makes it work for a player.
