I HATE YOU!!!!! OH, WELL NEXT TIME DON’T STEAL MY MONOPOLY!!! Arianna, give James your $200. You landed on his property. No, HES IN JAIL I’m not gonna give money to a criminal. JAMES: That’s not how you PLAY!!!! Mommy, why is brother screaming? Shut the f*ck up Sally, You don’t get to talk after stealing my LAST RAILROAD! I WISH I WAS NEVER BORN!!! ME TOO! YOU THINK I WANTED THIS!? AaAAAaaA!!!!! Hi! What you all just witnessed is the phenomenon known as Family Game Night. Family Game Night plays an important role in the household dynamic as studies have shown that families who participate in activities together form closer bonds and stronger relationships with each other. So try setting aside some time to play board games with your family and if they beat you, cut them out of your life forever… Okay, have fun you guys. I…….Like board games I guess any game that doesn’t involve me getting up and moving around, I’m a huge fan of also since I’m bad at everything and don’t like playing games against someone who’s better than me I really love the games that don’t require any type of skill like the game chutes and ladders Which I just learned today has another name called Snakes & Ladders I’m going to call it that instead cuz I’d rather draw snakes then Chutes In snakes and ladders you have no free will You’re at the mercy of a single dice and I love it while I was looking up walkthroughs for snakes and ladders I quickly learned that this game was made for preschoolers which is probably why it’s so simple or how about the game Sorry which is the most unapologetic game I’ve ever played there’s some strategy in that game but most of the time you’re just getting revenge on the players who’ve wronged you and the creators have sorry knew this because the tagline Of the game is “sorry the game of sweet revenge”, which if you think about it is a pretty funny oxymoron Aha take this (Piece dies.) Sorry, I know how to play chess but like most things I’m not very good at it, Unless I’m playing against someone under the age of 4, I don’t want to play that game because shows everyone how bad I am at planning ahead. That’s a game That’s a hundred percent strategy based. It’s like the IQ test of board games beating someone in chess will put you more ahead Academically than anyone with a Harvard degree and you’ll get more babes However, there is one exception and that is it’s okay to lose at chess If you’re playing against a computer, even if it’s on easy mode computers are way better at planning ahead than anyone because I don’t know how but a Human made a computer that can beat the world’s best chess player. But the creator of the computer can’t beat the world’s best chess player… So I guess that means… It’s game over, we tried our best but we’ve peaked. whenever you beat a computer in chess. It was going easy on you Imagine if we made a computer that could beat the world’s best snakes and ladders player I would pay money to see a snakes and ladders championship everyone watching knows that the person playing is just some Joe Schmo that acts like the world’s best snakes and ladders player But they’re all still excited and there’s real snakes that you get to slide down. That would be amazing Sign me up.*laughs* While we’re on the topic of chess. I want to tell you about this cool sport I discovered called chess boxing. This is an actual competitive sport where two players play chess for three minutes then box each other for three minutes, and they keep switching between chess and boxing until someone either gets a checkmate they run out of Time playing chess or they K.O the other player. I love this sport because it combines two polar opposite games and it’s something that anyone can play brains over brawn Try saying that after I sucker punch you in the oh that was that was a good move I’m gonna punch you so hard in the balls for that. I know I just said I was bad at chess But if there’s any youtubers who want to challenge me to a chess boxing match, I will gladly take you to the ring and we can charge people 12 dollars just to watch. *and we can end it in a draw, you know so that way you won’t look bad in front of your fans* So battleship that’s another board game and it also got a big Hollywood movie based off of it I haven’t seen it. But I hope there’s a scene where the captain of the ship goes “men, fire at D6” and then there’s an explosion in the distance and then Rihanna who is actually in that movie says sir the aliens sent a message it says Miss… the captain goes, “Hmm” Someone write that down so we don’t forget and then there would be an explosion at the back of their ship an alarm start going off everyone on board starts freaking out except for the captain. He goes Rihanna send the aliens a message. Tell them Hit. also ask him if they think the situation make a good board game. And if that scene is not in the movie, I hate it Did anyone else collect a bunch of pokemon cards, but never knew how to play the game? I don’t think I met a single person who actually knew how to play the card game which was weird because in my school the Card game was just as popular as the video games kids would always show off their collection of cards and binders and everyone always wanted The highly coveted shiny Charizard card,(buy it on amazon or Ebay) you know which one I’m talking about, You know which one I’m talking about, *In dumb voice* You know which one I’m talking about. unlike yu gi oh Which had dedicated? Episodes explaining why these five pieces of cardboard were expensive the shiny Charizard was rare not because it was good in the game But because everyone agreed that it looked cool, but then when you ask someone hey, do you want to play a game? They would say okay. I summon my Charizard in Attack mode does anyone even know how to play the Pokemon card game? I bet none of these guys even know what they’re doing How’d this guy win? He didn’t even call uno/one. I can’t be too hard on the Pokemon cards because the card game I like is probably way more complicated than Pokemon I don’t know for sure because like I said, I don’t know how to play the Pokemon card game, but my favorite card game is, Neopets. I’m just kidding, That was a joke Kind of I did actually own a lot of Neo pet cards. I don’t remember exactly how to play I do Remember you have to get 21 points to win which got me into playing blackjack But it’s okay that I don’t remember how to play because no one else is playing this game I wanted to find some footage of a neo pet tgc championship only to come to the disappointing realization that no Neopets championship exists Which is sad, so if there’s any youtubers watching and want to find my score chioce square up, okay? But for real the card game I like the most is Magic the Gathering, and fun little factoids all three card games I’ve mentioned were created by the same company Wizards of the coast. Hey, is that a monopoly reference? I’ve been playing magic since 2007 and back then the game was a lot more simple. Look at some of these more recent cards first. See how many words are on them, And if we flip them over they merge into an even bigger card What if you showed these cards to my 11 year old self? I would have lost my marbles My favorite thing about magic is when Richard Garfield, I mean dick Garfield was first creating the game in 1993 he didn’t really have an accurate way of testing the cards to make sure they’re all fair and balanced and Ended up creating some of the most overpowered cards and magic and players today. Refer to these cards as the power 9 Because there were nine really good ones, which is why every single one of them is banned. now Don’t get me wrong The power nine are good cards, but none of them are like you in the game good. take this one. For example Ancestral recall all it says is draw three cards or force opponent to draw three cards… Which is stupid that they added that last part. Why would you ever give your opponent three more cards to beat you with? Now I know what you’re thinking. Wait a slightly better pot of greed which is a card that allows me to draw two new cards from my deck and place them into my hand is one of the top nine most powerful magic cards Yeah pot of greed is banned too. games play such an important role in childhood And here’s what they all teach us in magic if you’re really good at what you do No, one will invite you to their tournament monopoly white-collar crime is okay battleship Just guess and check snakes and ladders If you see a ladder climb it immediately… and no one cares about Neopets now if you excuse me I have to show this prison guard my coupon. I have that lets me get out of jail anytime. I like And when all is said and done I thought to myself What can I do to help strengthen this weekly tradition of family game night? so I Decided to create my own game based off one of the most scarring events of my childhood many of you might recall the traumatic Experience my sister and I had with Harry the moth and to help me cope I decided to immortalize this memory by turning it into a card game Introducing can’t catch Harry. I let my Twitter followers decide on the name and they went with this one. So good job guys Here’s a sneak peak of some of the cards I spent a lot of time working on this game, and I know you’re gonna like it, We’ve got a lot of recognizable characters like mr. Poe a mom Satan and Sandwich artist. We’re launching the game on Kickstarter today So check out the link in the description to get yourself a copy we have different reward tiers like holographic cards golden figurines and even a custom-made card if you’re into that the reward tiers are only gonna be available for 30 days and Given my upload schedule. I don’t know if we’ll be able to tell you that again. So I’ll post updates on my Twitter and Instagram. That’s right. I got an Instagram I’m trying to tell you that to follow me on Instagram. Thanks for watching And that’s how we’re gonna segue into the end card. (subtitles by Ragecat568.) Also che mentioned the streamys as I mentioned I said, hey man, I’m at the street or not at the street I got nominated for streaming. They didn’t ask they didn’t say Hey, do you want to be do you want to have to go to this award show? They just emailed me and said guess what we nominated you and I’m just like I didn’t ask for this so Yeah, that’s that’s a thing that happened. I’m probably gonna get 0 videos out before then actually I have to get a Halloween one out. So maybe I can get a Halloween video out before the streamys we’ll see but You know, it’s I don’t show my face off. What am I doing? I’ve never played 52 card pick them up there Have you ever done that? Now pick them up Thanks, thanks for watching the video wear your seatbelt by the way. (Tweaked by Xman230 :D)

  1. In the animation of your victory, it was actually a stalemate because black had nowhere to go next turn. You actually tied.

  2. I am of age 13 and I am chess player. I really look forward to playing with you!

    Also I have a rating of 1103 so…

  3. There is actually a reason you might use the part of the card that lets your opponent draw three cards. If you somehow are playing a long stalemate, when your opponent is almost out of cards in their deck, you can force them to deck out early and lose.

  4. A lot of my friends and I know how to play Pokemon! It's not too hard just but a game sheet and ready directions. You need 1 deck of cards for each player though.

  5. My cousin tried teaching me how to play Magic, but it was boring for me bc he's not very good at teaching people how to do stuff. So now I'll live the rest of my life not knowing how 🤔

  6. Ricegum vs theodd1sout

  8. I have like, near 100 pokemon cards, but I have no idea how to play. Also, I have a charzard, shiny charzard, and a mewtwo. Plz tell me how to play. :c

  9. Your sitting on the edge of a branch. You’re sawing the other side. I’m laughing my socks off.🤣 🧦 ~ 🦶 🤣

  10. I particularly know the pokemon cards and their rules. The HP says in the top right. The attacks take off the hp by the damage attack. Its like the video game
