VCG plays Scenario 1 of Zombicide by Cool Mini or Not!

Today I played through scenario 1 of Zombicide Season 1 by Cool Mini or Not. Was I able to lead our group of survivors to the objective points and find the needed supplies or did I lead them to epic failure and have them become zombie chow? Watch and find out!

VCG unboxes Zombicide by Cool Mini or Not & Guillotine Games

Have you been on the fence about Zombicide? Is part of your hesitation because of the price and not knowing what is included in the box? If you just answered "yes", check out our unboxing of the game that started the franchise - Zombicide. If you answered "no", please take a look as well because I had to edit this video and upload it to Youtube and you know that takes some time and I'd hate to have that time go to waste. :)
As always thank you for viewing and please consider subscribing if you haven't already.

Last night I gave Sydney one of her stocking stuffer gifts early - Sushi Go! It was such a huge hit that we decided to stream our gameplay shortly after learning how to play the game. If you don't have Sushi Go! in your game collection I would suggest that you pick it up. It's a great game with cute artwork that is sure to be a hit with kids and families. Sushi Go! is a 2-5 player card game where you try to score the most possible points in 3 rounds by picking a card from your hand and then passing the rest. Sounds easy enough? It is BUT you also have to keep track of what others have played and either try to beat our opponents' point totals or block your opponents from scoring.
Without further ado, here is our game play of SUSHI GO!

2015 Stocking Stuffer games!

Here's our list of stocking stuffer games for 2015. Check with your FLGS first to see if they have or can get these games in stock, but if they can't we've provided links to purchase them online.
1. Star Realms - Great two player deck builder by White Wizard Games. Small box, small price, total value. Buy two copies and play four player!

2. Love Letter - All editions are great by AEG, but Batman is our favorite!

3. Sushi Go! - This is a great pick and pass family card game by Gamewright Games.

4. Timeline - You can't go wrong with any of these games by Asmodee. Plus they are sneakily educational!

5. DestinyQuest gamebooks - if there is a RPGer on your list, these are great books with a lot of replay value by an outstanding author, Michael J. Ward.

6. Epic Card Game - another great game by White Wizard Games. Small box, small price and scratches that Magic the Gathering itch.

7. Tiny Epic Galaxies - this game by Gamelyn Games is possibly the best game in their Tiny Epic series.

8. Dice Masters - boosters or starters will fit in stockings! Wizkids' dice game is perfect for a superhero or DnD fan.

9. Star Wars Empire vs. Rebellion - this game by Fantasy Flight Games is a small, light card game that will be perfect for your Star Wars fan.

10. One Night Ultimate Werewolf - Bezier Games publishes this great hidden role, party game. Easy to learn and quick to play, kids love it.

What games would you put on this list?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Doug and Sydney!

Just a quick note before we all dive into the festivities tomorrow to say we want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with family, friends and good food.

All of those working retail over the next few days - hang in there. I worked retail for over 15 years (even in management a few years at KB Toys) and I know this time of year is very difficult for those of you in retail. I will say that Sydney and I will not be participating in any Thanksgiving evening, Black Friday, or weekend shopping this week just because we have so much going on. We've never been Thanksgiving evening shoppers though just because I think this world needs a day where we all sit back and reflect on what we have and spend time with family and friends.

One thing we are very thankful for is all of the support we've received this year as we started our online presence and grown our channels. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed, followed, liked commented on or viewed anything we have created. When we started all of this I wasn't sure if there were other parents like myself that liked to game with their kids but I thought "What the heck. I'll upload different things and see what happens." Little did I know that there is a huge demographic of not just tabletop and board gamers but also gamers sharing that enjoyment with their kids. Thank you for showing me that I'm not the only one embracing the "victory conditions" of teaching your kids the skills that go along with playing tabletop games and RPGs and also having fun with them at the same time.
