Game Night: Pandemic, The Resistance & More Board Games

    Love, love, love these segments. It's about time! Keep em coming! These are all great games btw. Resistance is great but better with more people. Pandemic is fun as somebody mentioned can be a little anticlimactic at times. Ticket to Ride is a pure classic. I have yet to play it with someone that didn't like it.

    For some reason I felt like I needed to wash my hands several times with anti-bacterial soap after I watched this segment!

    Another great segment. I think AoTS is doing a real service to their viewers by having these in the show. One bit Rich didn't mention is that Ticket to Ride is also available on Xbox Live.

    As someone new to gaming I'm really enjoying these Game Night segments, and hope they continue. It's tough giving a good impression of a game in such a short amount of time, but Rich has been doing a pretty good job, so far.

    Excellent segment thanks for this. Pandemic is a seriously cool game, the Resistance can be a lot of fun accusing everyone and Ticket to Ride is a simple but fun game still I prefer the face to face version but I like to sit around the table and play games like that. So either way you are good.

    MOAR of this segment!

    - Pandemic is kinda boring. Very anticlimactic.
    - Haven't played The Resistance. Looks interesting.
    - Ticket to ride is fun, but a little shallow. If you want to ramp up a train game, go for Empire Builder.
