Rodney is the creator and driving force for an amazing series of videos, Watch It Played! I highly recommend people head over to Rodney's Youtube channel and check out some of the most polished and professional boardgame videos on the internet: WatchItPlayed.

Watch It Played! is not only one of the most developed and refined presentations of boardgames you will find anywhere, but it's also ahead of it's time in my estimation. Through the process of playing the game, Rodney and his family really get at the "fun" of the game. Rather than gushing on and on, I'll let Rodney introduce himself and his passion to you!



Now for Two Truths and One Lie:

Poll
Which one is the lie?
As a child, I once tested the integrity of a ketchup packet by stomping on it. While in a Suit. The results were both immediate... and surprising. Mother was not amused.
As a teenager, I was part of a defunct acapella group and also spat dope lyrics under the pseudonym, Poppa J. None of these attempts at coolness resulted in a music career.
In high school, I was forced to participate in the school fashion show where unhealthy quantities of makeup and hair gel were applied liberally to my appearance.

So... Enjoy your week Rodney. I hope you get to meet some new people, and have fun with it!

I will kick off the Q&A to get things started:

d10-1 What game are you most looking forward to playing?

d10-2 What does Pelvidar mean?

d10-3 Given your penchant for video creation, what's your favorite movie?

d10-4 Do you have a favorite movie director?

d10-5 What's coming up after Zombicide for your series?

and aesthetically satisfying games. By being unknowable, by resulting from events which, at the sub-atomic level, cannot be fully predicted, the future remains malleable, and retains the possibility of change, the hope of coming to prevail; victory.

Well deserved! Thanks for your videos Rodney. Without the series, I would not have become as engrossed in the hobby as I am now (I'll go ahead and clarify that I mean that as a complement). Enjoy your week in the spotlight. I hope this brings some more viewers to your series!

Rodney deserves this for oh so many reasons.

There is this guy who starts a little youtube-play-by-forum-game in his dark and most likely not very comfortable basement. He then goes on and raises the production value to a professional level in no time and even crosses the borders of sanity and cuts back on his actual job to continue the show.


This shows determination beyond anything I have ever seen in this hobby. Rodney contributes so much to this community and the boardgame community in general that Geek of the Week was long overdue.


Congratulations Rodney. Many viewers already told you how you influenced their lives with your show and I won't deny that in fact you made my life a little better. You are the reason that I searched for a local gaming community and met new friends because I wanted to recreat the fun you and your family regularly show us by playing boardgames.


Early in the show you presented Memoir '44 as the next game you want to play. Ever since then you never mentioned it. My guestion:

d10-6 Did you learn from that experience to never announce something to soon?

Well done Rodney, this is well deserved, you've put so much effort into giving us your great videos (and I'm fresh from the live Zombicide session, which was amazing, 200+ gamers playing one game, testament to how much respect you already have in the community), it's nice to see some recognition.
