A caveat.. I have shown this to several non-gamer friends. They said they felt it was too "inside baseball." Though enjoyable, they felt like they were missing out on a lot because they weren't familiar with the games and people mentioned. That being said, they did actually enjoy it and are now more open to designer board games. Seems like a "win" to me.
Grab some friends, pop in the DVD and be ready to bust out some Settlers of Catan after!
As a bonus you get a copy of Shoot Out a game by Reiner Knizia.
The Board Game is not dead, it has merely been resting. And now it's woken up.
