Fuck, I forgot some stuff, like Holedown and Beat Saber. Beat Saber is an all-time great VR game, not because it does anything particularly new, but because it executes an old thing so perfectly. I can't dance, but good rhythm/dance games, starting with Dance Dance Revolution and going on from there, make me feel like I can. Beat Saber makes me feel like a badass Jedi, which is OK by me.

Rami's writeup of Holedown is perfect. It's one of my all-time favorite mobile games.

Board game for @bored_and_agitated is Machi Koro's Bright Lights, Big City, which is the Target-exclusive edition. We bought it thinking it was an expansion for Machi Koro, but it's actually a new edition that integrates the first expansion and uses new, greatly improved rules to distribute the cards. The Bright Lights, Big City changes make the game more about playing the odds of the dice and less about getting lucky rolls, which is very welcome.

Honorable mention for board game goes to Tokaido, which is the latest game from 7 Wonders's designer Antoine Bauza. 7 Wonders is one of my all-time favorites because the strategy can get very deep, but the gameplay is accessible and easy to pick up. Tokaido expands the core mechanics of 7 Wonders with a new theme and even deeper strategy. Highly recommended, especially if you love 7 Wonders.

@fetterdave: That's a feature is available to everyone with a smartphone <4 years old and a current data plan from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint. It's an incredibly useful feature if you use a laptop, kindle, tablet, other wi-fi connected device, or just if your home internet goes down. If you already have the stuff to do it and it doesn't cost anything, why wouldn't you use that to do something like connect a Switch to the Internet when you're out?

@viking_funeral: I'm consistently around 2k in competitive, so it's entirely possible that I'm in the sweet spot for Overwatch matchmaking. In quick play especially, I seem to always get matches where I can make a difference, which is really all I'm looking for.

@jrock3x8: I'd need like 15TB of storage to hold everything uncompressed and I don't want to be replacing that many drives every 3 years.

@jrock3x8: @jjgoertz: copying the disc to drive takes 20-40 minutes depending on the length of the movie. Transcoding the 20GB+ file to 4-8GB takes much longer.
