Looking forward to the next round of voting I also believe the staggered system would work better.

Now we are not only addicted to the RunThroughs, but also the the votings!

PS: A bit late, but I just read that last month you went to Malaga (my city). I hope you had a great time, and if you ever come back here let me know meeple

Someone else, please vote for Firenze. Pandasuarus (I think) is re-releasing it in the U.S. in June, and I'd love to see a runthrough to help decide whether I should order it.

Richard, is it possible that you could add some more information on the buy list, mainly on games you've previously owned and traded away and/or games you've played and didn't initially take to. My reason for this is very simple, that I'd rather prioritise my votes towards games you've not already played and got rid of or didn't really enjoy your experience. Part of what makes your run throughs so different from other video reviews is the passion for the games, and I'd personally like to to use my votes to try to avoid spending the "fund" on games you're less over-whelmed by.

For example, I seem to remember that you've previously had Mage Knight and didn't really enjoy it, so while it's a game on my personal wishlist, I'd rather not vote for that - there is also a number of really great MK walk through series by Ricky Royal http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/142997/box-of-delights-boa... ).

Cheers, and good luck with the straightening out after the move!

Well, every game I've ever traded or sold away is listed here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/rahdo?gallery=l...

you can assume that if i got rid of it, there was a problem that either jen or I or both had with it

that said, I truly don't mind running through a game that we've previously walked away from, at all! if people want to see those games, it's fine with me. i still bring just as much enthusiasm regardless... i just say at the end why the game wasn't for us

NEW FEATURE ALERT! Head over to

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/158464/rahdo-runs-thro...

to make official requests of games for RRT to cover. I'll be directing the voters to check it out before every ballot, and I'll be using it myself to keep track of what people want to see, all in one handy geeklist!

keep the dream alive... add it to the geeklist too, spread the dream!

actually, in the next few weeks I'm sending the copy we've got away in a trade, so it'd have to get votes in the july's ballot, or it'll be gone soon... (p.s. we like it, but think it needs more than 2 to sing)

That was what the majority of people felt also, sadly, but if my son and I can do the learning, then we'll feel happier to take it along to game groups I guess!

If you need to see a video to help you learn how to play try the Watch It Played series for Belfort. Granted it has a different feel than when Richard does his thing, but it is still fun to watch and offers excellent instruction for a two player game.

Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDCR-sLLKhc

Aye thanks Shanda, I have subscribed to Rodney's series also and in fact it was his excellent series on Eminent Domain that pushed me to get that played with my son and daughter! Their Belfort series is in my unwatched queue on youtube at the moment along with many others It doesn't mean I can't pimp for others to vote for the Rahdo treatment of Belfort also does it? Saying all that, I definitely see no value in Richard re-buying it just to do a video of it if it's gone in his maths trade!

Hmm... I disagree. There are some great videos available for Glen More which got me excited to purchase (not really, it was a xmas present ) and play the game. eekamouse, UndeadViking, Drakkenstrike, slaqr, and Synnical77 all have substantial video reviews for Glen More.

Kolejka, on the other hand, doesn't have any videos in English. whistle

Ryan Metzler's review of Glenmore told me I wanted it!

And I think you;ll find I was pimping Belfort before it disappeared!!! Don't forget!

Okay, final votes for July are in, and now it's time for the surprise! As it turns out, Jen is going to be gone for about a month, from the middle of July to the middle of August. During that time, I'm not going to have much going on, other than walking dogs and watching movies, so I've decided to set myself a goal: run through 1 game a day, every day, while she's gone. I have no idea if I'll be up to the task, but if I do, that's around 30 games that I'd cover during that time.

So I told the voters about this, and that their votes would be combined between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ballots of July to create a master list of games I'd be covering over this time frame, and here's the results:

14 Carson City + Gold & Guns
11 Ora et Labora
11 Antiquity
10 Firenze
9 Navegador
9 Brass
8 Glen More
8 Copycat
7 Belfort
6 Key Market
6 Seasons
6 Homesteaders
5 Olympos
4 Middle-Earth Quest
4 Kolejka
4 Legacy: Gears of Time
3 Rolling Freight
3 London
3 Trains
3 The Gnomes of Zavandor
3 Race for the Galaxy
3 Fury of Dracula
3 Police Precinct
3 Viticulture
3 Airlines Europe
3 Hanabi
2 Runebound (Second edition)
2 Spellbound
2 Goa
2 Pergamon
2 Biblios

I won't necessarily be filming in this order, because some of these games are much harder to handle than others, and I genuinely can't anticipate how this whole experiment will go, but it should be a wild ride. In the meantime, there are several games on this list that I haven't played at all, or that Jen & I haven't played for quite awhile, so I've got some to get some more plays in before Jen goes, so I can cover these things. Plus I've got some other games outstanding from backer requests I'm going to try to get done *before* Jen leaves as well (those can be seen on the 'coming soon-ish' thread).

Wish me luck!

Anyway, just wanted to give you a sneak peak as to what's coming in the near future!
