He call some of us " Super Massers " And " Crazy." How do I build super sized maps? Just like the The good Doctor Wierdscaper, we have the room and some time to build. I build large maps for two reasons, #1 I like to push my maps to the limits of what can be done. #2 I like to build maps that make people say WOW, like my Waterfalls people love them and I love as well. The Magma Temple is really fun to play.

This poor guy has spent so much money on games that he can't afford furniture for his house. That's sad.

Best video review I've seen. Most are awful. These are only slightly awful. Does anybody else cringe when he states the wrong rules or miscalls a character. Like, "Alistair MacLean!" That's too funny.

I absolutely love the the 'Terrain tough Test' when his girls slam hexes aganst the wall, and when they illustrate the proper way to utilize the basic game guide.

But the best part by far, is when the little girl get's jiggy at the end of the last segment. CLASSIC!

I did cringe a little watching the board come apart. If you slide all of the pieces in properly it shouldn't be that flimsy.

That was plain old fun to watch.
By no means informative for most of the folks on this site but fun all the same.
Hopefully it'll bring more aboard.

Finally, a GOOD "How to Play Heroscape" Series. SO much better than that ExpertVillage crap.

I absolutely HATED that part. I almost started screaming, "NO! That's not how you treat daddy's toys!" Then I remembered my HeroScape is still safely stored in the underground bunker. (My bunker is just like Dr. Weirdscaper's only smaller.)

Fun to watch, but like others have pointed out he does mess up some of the names and gets some of the rules wrong.

But I did find out that I've been using the +8 initiative glyph wrong all this time -- it's supposed to be +8 attack!

Great job. I don't think his minor mistakes are going to afect anyone watching negatively about the game. He picked a really awesome map for the demo too. That's such a cool looking map.
