    I can't believe that sons of anarchy isn't on any of these lists! It's a great game, and it's like $16

    I love how Sam uses fancy words but in the wrong way. “I don’t have gravitas towards those movies.” Never change, Sam.

    What's your favourite Star Trek?
    Z: the one with R2D2 in it.
    Troll game on point.

    I couldn't disagree with LOTR Journeys more. There's no theme there Tom, nothing that matches the themes of the books at all.
    Villainous, on the other hand, should've been much higher on your list. There are few games that mix the theme with mechanisms as well as Villainous does.

    Great video! Licensed properties allow us a unique opportunity to create a fun and familiar gaming experience.
    Thank you for featuring #Villainous among so many amazing games.

    Sam, “Like straight to video movies” is the best description of pre-Battlestar IP games I’ve ever heard.

    Make a Top 10 Spin Off Games, where you only include games that are losely based on other games but quite different (no "the card game" or "the dice game", etc.). So Founders of Gloomhaven is in, but Istanbul the dice game isn't.

    Played Star Wars Outer Rim this past weekend and loved it! Definitely makes you feel like a bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe.

    Legendary Aliens is amazing and Arkham Horror Lcg is the best LCG ever

    To be fair Tom, how can you tell Zee that D.C. Deckbuilding Game has NO theme because you can play the exact same game with other characters and theme - while putting Dice Masters on your list? You could build any set of characters/story into a Dice Masters set/game. The play is the same.

  • Silver Fang

    War of the Ring is the most thematic game I know. It merges theme and mechanisms PERFECTLY ;).

  • Mister Rob

    Legenday Encounter Alien is the most thematic game I've ever played. Simply amazing.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't Games Workshop have the license to the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Movies? I'm guessing that's why you don't see very many games based on the movie IP?

    I actually prefer the hockey deckbuilder to the dc one. I may be in the minority but the hockey theme seems better served by the game.
