This is the best playthrough video for Fort I could imagine. You have set the bar incredibly high. The way you narrated your turns made it SO easy to follow. Subscribed!

Really nice explanation and playthrough. The camera angle for the gameplay is great, and the way you both talked through your actions was very helpful. Game looks like a lot of fun!

Like a lot of people, I just discovered you guys . Its nice to see a couple that kinda look like mine, really like your tone, comments, jokes, enthousiam yet no over-hype. As a constructive comment I would say, maybe some zoom shots on certain cards/details would be nice, but yeah thats really not a big deal.

That was a really well-synchronized rock, paper, scissors. You two belong together.



Thanks for the play through for this game! Looking at pre-ordering this game. You are becoming one of our most watched channels for board games because we mainly play with 2 players. Definitely opening our eyes to the heavier games like Lisboa. We are not quite there yet but close! Thanks!

Just discovered this channel. Love it! Y’all do a great job! This is one of the best how to/play though/review videos I’ve seen. Clear, succinct, and fun! Keep up the good work!

I think the initial draft of your starting deck will be absolutely necessary for this one. Can't wait to try it out !

Monique & Naveen - GREAT job! I was pretty sure I would preorder based on the Leder Games brand, but your playthrough and explanation totally sold me for sure on it! I’m a subscriber going forward, love your style of video!

At 35:57 I think you forgot to count your wild icon in the lookout. I believe you should have taken 5 things there instead of 4. Great video BTW! I owned and sold SPQF because after one play it felt too confusing to parse. This version seems to be smoothed out in a big way from the icons and even the complexity of the actions. Thinking I may want to give this version try.

Monique was always one or two steps ahead, and it was fun to see it play out. The build and execution was great to follow along. Great combining.

Really good playthrough and super useful as I'll mostly be playing 2-player too, so good to see that it plays well at the smallest count.
