Best Boardgames: The Complete Cardboard Children Top 50

It is very easy to lose things when living in the thrall of the endless bear. You make something, you put it down and suddenly it’s gone, lost over the horizon. You type some words into the search box to try to find it again but, alas, the Rock Paper Shotgun Search-O-Tron 3000 returns nothing.

And so here we are, to gather Rab’s Complete Top 50 Boardgames posts into a single set of links, better that you might bookmark it, print it out, study it, love it. Did you ever wonder what boardgames you should play? We’ve got five videos and five articles that will tell you.

Cardboard Children – Off The List

Hello youse.

Before my final video next week, my TOP 10 BOARD GAMES OF ALL TIME, I wanted to write about the games that I missed from the list. I’ll give you the reasons why. I’ll talk a little bit about games that will probably end up on the list at some point. Basically, these games need to be called out right here, because each one gives me a pang of hurty-hurty about why they ain’t on my list.

Hello youse.

Okay, let’s break down numbers 20-11 on my Top 50 Board Games list. We’re close to the Top 10 now. The list is almost complete.

Cardboard Children – Rab’s Top 50: Breakdown 3

Hello youse.

Let’s break down last week’s Top 50 entries. Are you watching my video series? I hope so, for your sake. I’ll kill you is what I’m saying! I’ll actually cut you! I’m enjoying doing the videos. In fact – after the list is done, I might try to do a video every four weeks or so – maybe I’ll focus on one game and dig down into it. We’ll see. Anyway – THE BREAKDOWN!!

Cardboard Children – Rab’s Top 50: Breakdown 2

Hello youse.

I could have predicted this. I could have predicted that by the time I was a couple of videos into my now-legendary Top 50 Board Games of ALL TIME list, I’d be starting to have second thoughts about my chosen games. It doesn’t help that I’m playing games all the time, and good ones, and now I’m constantly beating myself up with – “And THIS isn’t on my list? Idiot!”

Anyway, let’s look at my latest entry, in a little bit more detail. I’ll panic next week.

Cardboard Children – Rab’s Top 50: BREAKDOWN 1

Hello youse.

Never let it be said that I don’t listen to feedback. After the first part of my Top 50 list last week, quite a few people asked that I go into a little bit more detail on the games I selected. So, here’s the plan – the week after each part, I’ll do an analysis piece talking about the games that are in the list. That means that this week I’ll be revisiting last week’s video to look at my choices. Next week – the next part of the list. The week after – analysis of THAT part. The video will be for the reveal and the light description, and the follow-up piece will be for more talk about the games. You dig?

Also, I don’t need to be all PG-friendly in these in-between columns, because my wee lassie ain’t directing them. BOOM!

HEY, IT WAS YOUR IDEA.
