Red Rook Games is a figment of my imagination. It is my alter ego in a parallel universe where I design, produce, and publish the best games ever imagined. My hope is to one day create a vessel to transport you to this wonderful world where we can enjoy a game together.
I've always enjoyed watching video reviews, specifically those from Tom Vasel. I've found them very valuable when researching which game to buy next. I've also read and created a number of written sessions. Once familiar with the rules, sessions are helpful in giving an idea about how the game works, but sometimes it's difficult to get a real feel for the game. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 3 minute video at 30 frames per second is worth approximately 5,400,000 words. I'm not sure if YouTube videos actually run at 30 FPS, but you get the idea.
Simple Session Videos are meant to capture the essence of a game within a few minutes. I've posted a few so far to see how they would be received and so far that has gone well. I've learned a few things from the first videos and hope to make improvements with the next ones. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to post them in reply to the video or send me a geekmail.
My HOT 10 are the games that I'm looking forward to play right now. Games I Recently Played:Games I Am Researching or Wish to Buy Soon:BGG Milestones:
