  1. I own a few of these & want the rest. Some are hard to come by, sigh. Silver Bullet doesn't even get an honorable mention. How the mighty have fallen!

  2. I'd have to say that Honshu is a pretty cool card game. Reminds me of a 2-4 version of Sprawlopolis.

  3. I’m dying to get sea salt and paper. No USA release yet booooo. And wow, silver bullet is GONE! Never thought I’d see the day. Fantasy Realms is a very deserving number 1. LOVE that game

  4. Always love to see Saashi & Saashi get some love!
    All of his games are so different from each other and so different from most other games!

  5. I swear… if you haven't played Bohnanza yet, this list will be premature lol.

  6. So many games I love to play (6 Nimmt, Parade) and ones I want to play (Claim, Scout, Sea Salt and Paper). 6 Nimmt on BGA got us through the lockdown during the pandemic. Solid list, guys!

  7. Have not played any on your list. However, I've been going back and forth with Sea Salt & pepper.

    My favorite card games are:
    1. Jambo – I love the theme and gameplay. You are a merchant setting up a stand somewhere in Africa. You are trying to buy low and turn it around to sell high. As you are doing so, you are sending animals to your opponent to mess woth their ability to make more money than you. There are artifacts and people that help you cycle through the common deck faster.

    2. Rivals of Catan – I really enjoy Cities and Knights of Catan and Rivals is a card game interpretation of that expansion. It adds an element of a memory game in that you can go through 1 of 5 piles of cards to pick a card each time you are adding to your settlement. As the game progresses, your memory of which cards are in which pile gives will give you an advantage over someone who does not have as good of a memory.

    3. Star Wars DBG – A deck building game where players build their deck by choosing cards from a central row of cards.

    4. Star Realms – gameplay is similar to Star Wars DBG but has a more pronounced synergy between cards.i*ĵ

    5. Imperial Settlers – I love civilization themed games. This isca tableau building game where one side of your tableau are cards representing lands you have conquered and the other side are cards that you have annexed into your kingdom.

  8. Oh! My Brain! , 5211, Wazabi, Fort, Radlands, and Gyrating Hamsters. Great card games.

  9. No silver bullet… that’s so sad- your love for that game drew me to your page – it feels like we’re breaking up now 😂! Great list otherwise😊

  10. My 2P trick-taker is Jekyll vs. Hyde, my 5P+ trick-taker is Texas Showdown (renamed Seas of Strife in the reprint coming very very soon)

  11. We have been loving Cat in the box due to your video. It is so unique and love trick taking games. We also are enjoying Star Wars Deck Building game. Just ordered skull king. One we need to get back into is Rage, which seems similar to skull king.

  12. Here to Slay is my top. That being said……
    I am shocked!!!! Shocked I say that Silver Bullet is not mentioned. My gf and I are addicted to this thanks to you. And!!!!
    Last week I just mentioned you guys in my review on Amazon for it.

  13. Have you not played Race for the Galaxy? Can't imagine any best card game list not including it.

  14. Among my favorites I would mention Dale of Merchants (oK it has a dice but if you play without ocelots, there is no dice) and Arboretum.

  15. Great list! I would add in: Tichu, Arboretum, Cockroach Poker, Heul Doch Mau Mau, High Society, Plums, Five Three Five, 9 Lives, and Ghosts of Christmas.

  16. You need to do a “clip show” of all your openers at the end of the year. 😂 just 30 straight minutes of Jeff and Jamie chirping. 🤣🤣🤣

  17. Amazing list!

    Mine might look something like
    Hanabi
    The Crew
    Skull King
    Jekyll vs Hyde
    SCOUT
    Biblios
    Hanamikoji
    Schotten Totten
    San Juan
    6 Nimmt

    I'd love to try Marvel Remix, Claim and Parade.

  18. How did Silver Bullet not make the list? Thank you for all your videos! I found you guys a couple months ago and have basically been binge watching your videos. They have brought me much joy during a stressful time.

  19. The WSBG ad- was totally rad. All that rhyming had great timing! OK, I'll cool it, as long as you mention silver bullet!

  20. For a pure card game, Bohnanza is still something special for me. I love how the cards act as coins when you flip them over, and I love the player interaction. It’s not the sexiest pick, given it’s age, but it’s still a banger to me and would make my top 10, along with The Crew. Fuji Flush is hard to find these days, but your new list might inspire some new purchases, as we absolutely love card games for the same reasons you do.

  21. Poor Silver Bullet 😢…..but a great list!

  22. Claim is SO good – needs more love! I adore card games, some of my favorites are:
    R-Eco,
    Best Candy on the Block,
    Tranquility,
    Min-Hwatu (Korean version of Hanafuda),
    The Grizzled,
    The Lost Expedition,
    Schnapsen (2-player trick-taker using a traditional deck) and
    Dealer's Dilemma (3-player trick-taker with a traditional deck).

  23. Have you ever tried Five Crowns? It’s a rummy style game with a twist. Our family also likes Karma, Hi-Lo Flip, and Dutch Blitz. We like card games!

  24. I agree with Sea Salt & Paper, it's amazing!!! One of my favorites games

  25. Broken record here, hello. Mottainai. (And Mouse Cheese Cat… you know.)

  26. Great selections. Fist bump on Sea Salt & Paper. It is SO SO GOOD. Fast, fun and petite. Easy to teach, easy to play. Everything you described. It will go with me on every trip! Some other lesser known "pure" card games which make my list include Ohanami, Ninjitsu, and Plantopia.

  27. Where can you find a copy of Sea Salt and Paper? I've been looking and had zero luck. Would love any suggestions. Thanks!

  28. Not that you need more, but another couple of good games that I haven't seen mentioned are Paperback and Air, Land, and Sea or Air, Land, and Sea: Critters at War (the cuter version)

  29. what? No mention of Port Royal? Crew, High Society, Battle Line, Love Letter?! This list is bunk!

  30. This is a fantastic list, though I haven't played all of these games.
    Sea Salt & Paper is my most played game of the year so far (16 plays, not including BGA). It has taken the place of Parade and Scout as a game I always grab when going out for beer.
    Wind the Film / Photograph is so quirky and wonderful! I highly recommend In Front of the Elevators for a similar but totally different quirk.
    I haven't played Skull King yet, but I've played it's dice game brother, Mino Dice, a couple of times. Fun because you bid before you roll your dice and know what you have.
    Some other favorites not yet mentioned: Nana, Boast or Nothing, For Northwood! (seriously, Jamie, you should get this game it is amazing), Tokkome (a quirky tiny box Japanese game), Piepmatz, annnnd I'll stop now.

  31. R.O.V.E. is great lots of fun – ever tried SpaceShipped ? also 18 cards of great solo game 🙂

  32. Do you have a favorite version of fantasy realms?

  33. I love so many of these!! The one I think I’d sneak in is Coloretto because I’ve been pretty high on it this last month! 🙂

  34. Can't seem to find Sea Salt & Paper in the US. Hope to find a copy at Gen Con.

  35. We call hanabi “the divorce game” because i don’t know what it is but it takes our group of very relaxed “I don’t care who wins just like playing” group and turns them into angry rivals when someone misunderstands a clue 😂 no other game does this for us!

  36. Yes on Fantasy Realms for small box (such depth and love 1st edition art)! Scoring is fun actually. My two favorite games of all time are card games: Dominion and Innovation. San Juan too.

  37. Air, Land, & Sea, Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, Boss Monster, Legendary, Smash Up, and High Command (WarMashine & Hordes).

  38. Fantasy Realms wins my award for highest ratio of Excitement/Anticipation for playing it to it being THE biggest dud with my group. To the point where my bringing new game privileges were revoked for a few weeks. I was so excited to bring this and it seemed like the perfect game for my casual game group (they LOVE Dominion, but generally turn their noses up at games you can't buy at Walmart or Target.). I'm sure a lot has to do with knowing what combos do what and being familiar with all the cards. But that first game went so bad that people weren't even being nice about how much they hated this game. But I keep on seeing it on lists like this. I might have to try the marvel one since the combos and interactions will make more sense out of the box.

  39. Great list guys, I need to check out Fantasy Realms soon. I'm at scary levels of obsession with Sea Salt and Paper on BGA, thankfully my copy should be with me next week!

    Some of my all time favs you probably have tried I'd imagine: Jaipur, Battle Line (aka Shotten Totten), Hanamikoji, Mandala (thats a card game right?!) and I still love playing Cribbage back home at Christmas!

    One you might not know I'd say worth checking out, Village Green. It's a solid card game and can also be played solo for Jamie. It's dirt cheap over here (UK) but not sure if imports etc would make it a bit pricey over there.

  40. I can feel the tension between them after playing those

  41. You guys are so cool! How do I get these games to South Africa? 😢

  42. Love the list, all 'new to me' games. Sonso looks super interesting and dig the theme. Sea Salt + Paper is in my cart as we speak.

    If you guys havent heard of Small Box Games(no affiliation), the desinger has several two player games only containing 54 cards with a several different themes. Worth a check in my opinion, shipping is decent to Canada

  43. Fuji Flush is one of my families favorite games!
