Boardgame Overviews - Board Games with Scott

Videos and Write-ups: Board Games with Scott

Board Games with Scott is a weekly show where Scott Nicholson takes a board game, describes it, and lightly reviews it. Note that his reviews are not designed as a training video. He does not teach all of the rules - he just shows enough to help you decide if you want to buy the game.

Following are 13 of Scott's first videos found on YouTube. You can access the rest of his videos via his website @ Board Games with Scott.
