Board Game Geek:

Thank you for watching! And thank you for all your comments, I love making videos for you all!

If you’re new to Actualol, my name is Jon Purkis. My two passions are writing comedy and playing board games, so I decided to combine the two in this YouTube channel.

I make all my videos on my own, in my flat in London, UK, with the help of a diverse selection of wigs.

My favourite videos:

SUCH a good idea! We're all going to be drifting in and out of food comas on Christmas morning. What a great selection! (not bias because we're in it, we LOVE all of these games!!)

David May says:

Oh God I can't stop laughing at [some reference Americans will get]

WayOfFire says:

LOL I just asked my friend to smuggle me back monikers from America and now Amazon decides to sell it at £22 instead of £40+. Well least this way I’ll get all the expansions.

I’m liking the mini boxes for Boulderdash and Mr Lister. I think my mr Lister copy is three times bigger.

Martin D says:

"Nothing of any value in life have been achieve while standing up!"

So you're saying we should … shut up and sit down?

JF says:

Barry sounds like my kinda guy.

Brilliant as ever….thanks Jon

Adam Woods says:

The Christmas videos are allways a treat. Thanks John!

Semi Co-op says:

Renzuo Ong says:

Timmy is Hilarious! Love these top 10s! =)

"Sitting at a table is the standing up of sitting down." Gosh dang it Jon, that was great!

Qwixx Deluxe with a make shift dice tray.

"Rudolph the red nose reindeer had a very shiny…face" Mega Lolz 😂😂😂

What a wonderful video!

Sorry what is happening here? I was just lying on the floor waiting for dinner.

Absolutely love these videos, always hysterical 😂 happy Christmas!

Sir Ayme says:

Love the warmer lighting! Really gives a more homely feel to your videos 🙂

Btw I really wouldn't play Mafia de Cuba on the couch. For sure I would lose some diamonds to the couch creases.

Cracking stuff, thanks for this original list 🙂

Oh how I miss the days of laying on the floor waiting for super… Great list, Jon! Kokoro sounds wonderful. Merry Christmas!

nztuber says:

Another 10/10 video 😀 thanks for all the laughs 😀

This was great. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing and for all your hard work.

Wait… on the cover of "Scrawl", is the hand drawing a penis?

Timmy on screen = instant like

Any Christmas themed games you'd like to recommend? The best thing I could find so far was Santa's Bag and it's far from brilliant.

He nailed Hive Mind. It is great.

Pantheus says:
