From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I’ve been a fan of the YouTube show Tabletop, hosted by Wil Wheaton. Each episode sees Wil and friends play a different tabletop game (generally a board or card game). As a show Tabletop has had a positive and measurable effect on tabletop games. Games which are featured on the show gain a sales bump for a few months after the episode becomes available.
Two seasons have so far been run on YouTube and for the third season they have decided to fund themselves via crowdfunding to remain as independent as they would like to be. They aren’t the only ones, as I write this the show has smashed its $500,000 funding goal and is sitting north of $1.3 million. Popular shows can be funded!
If you are interested you have a few hours to check out the Tabletop funding page on Indiegogo.
