Great episode thanks, I'm new to this kingdom.

On the topic of unboxing videos I wanted to chime in. I generally agree they're far more me too unboxing's than their should be. I've seen little effort put into it as you described, providing little value to the viewer. If the presenter talks about the game and the pieces, how it plays, etc as they unbox then it is a better presentation. Also, when I've purchased used games they have helped with making sure all the components are included. Cheers

Welcome to the Babblot. We shall knight you "AddictArts the component checker."

And the presenter should have one of those sexy cooking show voices that make you want to eat the game. shake

As of my writing this, tomorrow, September 19th, is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. In preparation for and appreciation of that fact, I just asked a roomful of sixth graders "You know why pirates jokes are funny, don't'cha?"

Their response to the punchline accurately mirrored the response that our humble king gets nowadays too. It was glorious, and I have no regrets.
