  1. Sam’s last top ten? Wow, talk about a punch in the throat! I’m genuinely saddened to hear this, hope everything is okay with him and will miss him greatly.

  2. Did Tom play Res Arcana? That's probably my favorite 2-player game of the year so far, although I admit I haven't played too many new ones from this year. I'm guessing it would be on Zee's list.

  3. It looks like Tom's shenanigans with various objects distract him from the actual top 10, doesn't it? 🙂

  4. The night before Sam announced his departure I had a dream where he was at Recess Games (My FLGS) in Ohio

  5. GMT Panzer , Main Battle Tank, or Advanced Squad Leader Command and Colors Medieval.

  6. cant believe they're (Tom& Sam) breaking up. IIRC, they've been together since Korea if not before.

  7. I'm going to miss sam, I
    have purchased almost all my games solely on his reviews, it turns out we have the same taste in board games. Gonna miss you big guy 😔😟😔🙁

  8. I would add:
    – Undaunted: Normandy
    – Robin of Locksley
    – Paladins of the West Kingdom (not only 2 players but best at 2 players)

  9. Cairn pronunciation ‘kayrn’ (means Stone monument)

  10. Does anyone else find it a bit weird that Tom didn't include Unmatched on this list? I thought he really liked that game

  11. Thanks to this video I immediately ordered Getaway Driver!

  12. Combo fighter is my favorite on the list, highly recommend

  13. Is Blitzkrieg available anywhere? Was trying to get a hold of it before Christmas, but it looks like that is not possible.

  14. ShoBu is really a phenomenal game. So much depth in there

  15. No Dual Powers by Thunderwork Games……….

  16. Some extra to consider: Siege Storm: Siege Mode, Sorcerer, Terrors of London, and Nagaraja

  17. Bushido is my favorite 2 player fighting game. From 2019

  18. I'm so sad to hear Sam is leaving… 🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁. Best wishes Sam, I'll miss seeing you on the Dice Tower. 🙁🙁🙁🙁

  19. The Sam bit totally got my mind off the list O_O can't believe he's leaving, really sad to hear that. Wish him all the best.

  20. Tom, you should make a Top 10 Western themed games and then include games that aren't Western themed.

  21. No Res Arcana? My favorite 2 player game of 2019 by far.

  22. I was really surprised to see Res Arcana missing from this list. Tom did seem to like it a lot in his review, and I’m sure it’s going to make a lot of top ten games lists. I think Tom just forgot about it.

  23. Marvel champions – best 2 player game in this top 10 imo 😁

  24. Re: Cairn. As Cairn terrier enthusiasts (who doesn't like Toto from the Wizard of Oz?) can tell you, "cairn" shares the same vowel sound as in bail, bait, dairy, fail, faint, fair, hail, hair, jail, lair, mail, main, nail, pail, pair, paint, rail, sail, saint, tail, taint, and wait.

  25. My 10 year old daughter and I love Ka-Pow! Picked it up at Pax

  26. does Sam only quit the top 10s you do together or will he also stop doing reviews in general, wherever he is going?

  27. Glad to see Shobu on here, such a fantastic game! Bought it immediately after trying it out at Origins.

  28. So sad about Sam leaving… that's really a shock. The interaction between you three guys made me like this top 10 videos so much…

  29. Someone said Catan? Why not Cosmic Encounter, or Diplomacy!

  30. Thanks for your reviews Sam. I am now a huge fan of memoir44 because of you.

  31. Tom you gotta stop putting out these lists. My bank account can't handle it! I instantly went and ordered Watergate. I would have bought Blitzkrieg! too but it's not out yet.

  32. Thanks for you list- I've not played any of these!

  33. i love all Fireboy and Watergirl games!!! They are so addicting!!!! It's my favorite game on hudgames.com

  34. I think this is insulting to not have Targi anywhere on this list.

  35. Will there be an update for this year? 😀
