Rahdo has done a play through of Akrotiri before and has mentioned that him and his wife really loved it – and now we can see how much they love it! He ranks it as his second favourite 2-player game of all time! That’s high praise! Thanks Rahdo! Check out his entire video here – or fast forward to 21:00 to see what he has to say about Akrotiri!
The Dice Tower often creates top 10 videos based on various mechanics, and the recent one was for Pick Up and Deliver. This video also welcomed another board game podcast icon to the show – Rahdo! It was Rahdo that placed Akrotiri as his #4 favourite Pick up and Deliver game of all time. That’s high praise coming from someone who’s played and reviewed so many games! It’s surprising that Tom hasn’t played it yet though – considering he’s loved all of our previous games! Maybe we’ll have to send him one!
Rahdo has established himself as an important voice in the board gaming community. I think it’s because of his passion that comes through in his videos. It’s obvious that he loves board games! Also he produces a lot of content! If you’re thinking about picking up a game, definitely check to see if Rahdo has played it!
His most recent video is about Akrotiri! He does a 30 minute set up and play through of the first couple of rounds. He makes a couple of goofs, but you’ll see annotations popup that will correct them.
Then there’s a video for the rest of the gameplay so you can see the whole game unfold.
Finally, Rahdo gives his final thoughts. Some of my favourite quotes from Rahdo are:
“Jen and I enjoy that a lot”
“This game really works well”
“There’s a surprising amount to think about”
“It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s exciting!”
“The mosaic of this board as it expands is just a delight”
Thanks for the videos Rahdo!!!
