"Opening boxes, game reviews, and live games." This is how one of the most active YouTube board game channels of the moment is presented. The channel in question has more than 600 videos dedicated solely and exclusively to table games , including live games, product analysis, tutorials, tricks and a long etcetera.

If language is not an impediment and we want to enjoy daily content, BoardGameGeek is probably the most popular and massive YouTube channel in the world of role-playing and board games in English and Spanish.

Most of these broadcasts are usually carried out within the different conventions and game championships that exist in the United States . The channel also has analysis of games and opinions of each of its components.
Board and role-playing games
Channel with a theme and content very similar to the previous one, with the exception that it focuses on role-playing board games, such as Camarilla, La Sombra de Saros, Monotith or Nahuiollin . In addition to having game analysis, the channel teaches the basics of some big-name titles along with a series of tricks to win the games.
Currently the number of subscribers is less than 3,000, although the channel's activity is quite regular. It has a website where monthly raffles for board games are usually organized .
The Pacheco Dungeon
Probably one of the YouTube channel of board games with the greatest impact within the Hispanic community, with no less than 63,000 subscribers behind it.
With more than 250 board games analyzed, the channel does not limit its content to board games: we can find role-playing games and even cards. Part of the content also focuses on tutorials and streaming of real games among its four members , not to mention the raffles that the channel organizes and the tops of board games of different themes.
Another board game channel quite similar to the rest of the channels. Unna is responsible for the channel that gives its name to it. Like other YouTube channels, Unna's content focuses on unpacks, cheats, live game streaming, and game reviews , some well known and some not so well known.
Perhaps its greatest strength is found in the variety of games presented, from the most popular to the least massive. Titles like Cities: Skyline, Unfair or Root .
No, they are not fireworks games. Board games focuses a large part of its content on game tutorials, although we can also find opinions and tops of titles on a multitude of topics. Games to give away, for parties, for couples, for large groups and so on.
