I’ve fallen in love with Will Wheaton’s new show, TableTop, on Geek & Sundry. It’s the kind of thing that a television network would never fund. “Who would want to watch a bunch of geeks sitting around a table playing board games?” This is the kind of thing that’s going to eventually allow me to drop cable. Will and his guests are entertaining, and the show has high production values (cheap, reusable trophy aside). With my interest in game design, I’ve very much enjoyed learning about a number of games I’ve not played before. In fact, I’ve turned my whole family onto the show, and they just gave me Munchkin and Small World for Father’s Day. I’d love to know if there has been a noticeable bump in sales of the games they have featured. After all, to the game publishers, it’s basically a 30-minute commercial. I assume Geek & Sundry is trying to capitalize on this—they do provide purchase links to the games on Amazon, so are likely collecting their Amazon Associates kickback, but I know that’s not the mechanism by which my wife ordered the games.
