Whiskey Media Intern Matt Kessler asks Tested.Com's Will Smith about his collection of German board games. Also, we take a stand against Magic: The Gathering.

That is a LOT of games. Also, looks like tons of fun. Wednesday Night Board Games, hell yeah!

Wow, those look like they'd be right up my alley.  Still, though, no drunken Candyland?  Oh come on.

I demand a live stream of this board game night. I DEMAND IT

Posted by HT101

No Catan = FAIL!!!!  That game is great and not having it at a board game night makes this board game night nonexistent.

thirded, furthermore I would submit that the chatroom would be the 4th player in these board games.

Dominion is insanely fun, and they're right about it being a far superior alternative to Magic. No need to build decks means every game is fair. You don't get the feeling of, well, I'll never win, because he has a better deck.

So I'm guessing Hungry Hungry Hippos for the next Thursday Night Throwdown!  Can't wait.

I didn't know it was possible to not like Carcassonne.

Keep up the good work Kessler :)

So, are you guys going to stream this live? I would love to see this.

Posted by chogi

i want video when people play at that sweet band setup you guys have in the back.

Dominion is a pretty fun game. I just played it last week. 
 
Settlers of Catan was also fun.

Posted by ohwiseone

If your not gonna stream it at least, record some of it

Posted by Rayeth

Dominion rules!  Check out any of the expansions!  They add so much to the base game.
 
Settlers and Ticket to Ride are both awesome as well.

Posted by Pessh

Kessler Kam should totally be a feature on the site.

Kool, Kesser Kam.
 
The office seems so empty.

I would also not mind if there was a live stream of this...

Somebody should post magic the gathering to them

@MattBodega: Ask Will if he's played Bazaar. It's a great game, and it's easy to make house rules for. I think older versions of it used chips to trade with, but you'll most likely find it using pebbles, like this:

 Ticket to Ride is bullshit, all I'm gonna say.

Posted by LordXavierBritish

Someone should just bring in Bakugan now out of spite.

No waterboarding? Amateurs.

Posted by Pkshields

I'm pretty sure the last board game I played was Deal or No Deal. That's shameful.

Posted by Brake

If you have a good DM hanging around, you guys should do an ongoin series of D&D and record it in some fashion.

Posted by Falconer

Arkham Horror. The most legit board game ever.

@PeasantAbuse: I like the game mechanic, and I like playing on Xbox and iPad, I just think the scoring is such a huge pain in the ass, it isn't fun to play in person.

@HT101: Andy was supposed to bring Cities and Knights, and he forgot it.

I see no settlers

Posted by Stilblad

A game suggestion would be Shadows over Camelot.  My favorite board game ever!

Posted by erinfizz

Yay boardgames! I can't wait for the new Dominion expansion, Prosperity, it has really great cards and some neat tweaks. 
 
I was a demo-er for Queen games at a convention a couple of months ago, and now suggest both Fresco and Samarkand: Road to Riches to everyone. Very fun, and Samarkand is a great way to introduce folks to 'train games' by way of multicolored camels and families instead of the more traditional, yet way dry theme-wise trains and goods shipping. My go to game lately has been Roll Through the Ages, a kind of goofy civilization building through dice rolling game. 
 
Also, I dislike both vanilla Catan and Carcassone. I do enjoy both Carc the City and Carc the Castle tho.

So here's what you do: Have the Tested guys rig up some servos to Hungry Hungry Hippos so that one of the 4 players is just a robot. Then create a web app that allows one person at a time to hit a keyboard button in order to control the robot. Then, Robo-Me wants to play Jeff at Hungry Hungry Hippos.
 
Bonus points if you let multiple people into the web app so the robot needs to move at light speed keep up.

All you need's some Apples to Apples and apple schnappes.There is nothing that beats Apples to Apples with Apples.Unless there's an iPhone version...

I love how enthusiastic Will is about everything. It's really fun to watch.
