  1. Wait it’s Dust Biters?! I thought he was always saying Dust Spiders lol oops😅

  2. Table top podcast? Awesome! Thanks MinnMax!

  3. JeffM's videos were super great!! The two of y'all have fun differing perspectives on games that play well together, and adding the community takes is a nice bonus. Keep up the good work

  4. Missed joke opportunity: When talking about polyomino games Ben said, "I'm catching on now." He should has said "I'm catchinomino"

  5. Just picked up Dust Biters, that looks like way too much fun and that art is sweetttttttttttttttttt

  6. That's not a videogame, I want my money back

  7. great topic! i’m always looking for a good two player game. the kid friendly game discussion was also really interesting. you guys should make that an ep in the future 👍

  8. Me and my girlfriend really love “Santorini”. It’s fantastic for two players.

  9. I was wondering why jeff always had all those board games behind him. I just assumed he really liked them as wall art or maybe he inherited them from a family member.

  10. Wayne's World also had a VCR board game. I think there were a few other movies that received the VHS/board game adaptations.

  11. Really appreciate the videos that show the game set ups. As winter nears, it's nicr to hesr about fun two-player games. I'll def check some out

  12. My girlfriend and I discovered Disney Villainous over the summer and now we are absolutely hooked. We don't quite play daily, but it's pretty close. Tons of variety and deep strategy for two players, but it becomes a great party game if you can get a group together willing to learn the rules.

  13. I bought my wife the Stardew board game for her birthday and we got a little obsessed with it, and now it's also refuelled our addiction to the video game too 😅

  14. Always been looking for games to play with my girlfriend, so very much looking forward to this!

  15. I personally enjoy JeffM’s “sarcasm” – it adds to the show. 🤷‍♀️

  16. Thanks for featuring Akropolis! Glad you enjoyed it at 2p!

  17. Play pathfinder the adventure card game! my favorite board game of all time!!! Currently 🎉😂 but… go gen one all the way through! To gen 2! On your own time even do us a favor and show us some gameplay you’ll be doing yourself a single multiplayer service

  18. LOL, I was so happy when JeffM mentioned 7 Wonders Duel, that's the only game I knew to that point in the video. During the pandeminc my exGF and I (my thenGF) used to play a lot 7Wonders Duel, it's a pretty cool little game especially if you have the Pantheon addon.

  19. The video work! Jeffms knowledge of games is awesome! Love this

  20. Loved the content! I'm looking forward to learning about more board game ideas. Also, Lost Cities is one my partner and I's favorite games.

  21. Huge shoutout to Kudis. He is a major help to board game reviews within the MinnMax community discord.
