I’m actually working on a couple of posts that are taking a bit more oomph than expected so I thought I’d post something my friend Mike and I made a few months ago and we just last week starting up again.
With the growing popularity of Wil Wheaton’s TableTop and board gaming in general, a lot of YouTube Let’s Players are moving to the real world and out of the digital one. There are a number of channels that play a variety of table top games on video and we, as avid fans and gamers ourselves, decided to start doing some of our own.
It’s VERY amateurish and has 0 production value (I used my Sony SLR which can only shoot 29:57 before it shuts off) and we had to set up a fixed position for the games we’ve played. We had some good runs at this game of Castle Panic though and we hope to do some more with actual editing and shots. Not to compete or become a “thing” just because we have a lot of “moments” in these games that are worht capturing, as many gamers do, and we feel it’s fun to share with the gamer community at large!
Beware there’s the language of a couple of people playing games…and not always so successfully in these vids!
One thought on “Table Top Home Brew”
I think the video quality is perfectly fine, and I like that you keep turn explanations brief. Maybe consider getting a usb Go Mic (pretty inexpensive) to overlay some quality sound for the witty back-and-forth.
