Post by LeftHandedGuitarist »

So who here watches Wil Wheaton's TableTop gaming show on YouTube? Third season is coming up as well as a seperate show dedicated to RPGs :)

The Fiasco episodes are the best I've seen so far.

At first I found them a bit too fake and staged, but I've now settled into the style and love it. He gets some great geek celebrities on.

That sums up my feelings too. I couldn't get on with it at first but I ended up loving it and spending a fair bit on games as a result.

I watched the playthrough of The Resistance, but that's the only one I've watched.

I like the Shut Up & Sit Down videos - http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/

SUSD are very good, and I love how off the wall they are. Dice Tower is good too, though I think they go for quantity over quality. Their Top Ten lists with Tom, Sam and Zee are an entertaining watch. Finally, Rahdo Runs Through is brilliant if you're vacillating over whether to buy a game. He literally plays the games for a few turns going through his thought process while playing. He's cost me loads of money. :D

Season three starts next Thursday with Tokaido. This series is going to cost me a lot of money.

Fortunately I already have Tokaido so my purchases will be put off for at least another week!

Excellent Tokaido episode - loving the S3 production values!

No doubt I'll watch it over the weekend, realise I desperately need Tokaido in my collection, and then find it to be out of stock everywhere for the next sixteen years or whatever.

Really enjoyed the Tokaido episode. Not too sure it's an immediate purchase though. Didn't seem to grab me unfortunately. Anyone played it?

I've watched other videos of it being played and it doesn't appeal to me really. Looking forward to seeing Tabletop though! :)

Tokaido is actually really fun - plays better with 4 rather than 2, but there's quite a lot of strategy involved in playing, and a bit of dicking your opponents too!

Still no episode two? I thought they'd be coming out weekly.

Been watching these, the latest one Cards against Humanity S03E09 was billed as a After Dark episode...it was.

Definitely worth it just for Will explaining hot dick milk.

It just reminded me why I think CAH is a crap game.
