Another question which might interest the publishers: who should they ask to do the video review of this game for the KS ?

Who would be the best for this kind of game ?

Personally I love Rahdo, but don't think this is his kind of game at all (too much conflict).

In the dice tower gang, I am not sure it's the kind of game The Game Boy Geek or Ryan Metzler. It would be more in the alley of Tom Vasel, but I don't think he does previews anymore...

Who's left ? Undead Viking ? Rodney Smith ?

Or maybe someone else I don't know yet ?

What do you think ?

I think Lance & Rodney are good choices. Lance will go into great detail and really give you a solid overview. Rodney will give you an amazingly nice looking overview but less dense with details.

I think Undead Viking would be perfect!

I know you know this, but just to clarify the point, a proper review would be what people would want, not just a preview, I am sure. This will, of course, allow the reviewer an opportunity to point out what they perceive as the game's flaws and perhaps even not like the game at all (though I think that's pretty unlikely given what I've heard). A fair appraisal, warts and all, is a rare, appreciated thing in Kickstarter projects.

I cannot wait to back this game regardless.

My vote for Rodney over Lance any day.
Lance does a fine job, but he rambles too much for my taste.

I think the more the merrier. I would also recommend doing your own, in house video explaining gameplay. Something that lets people see an explain of play and how it all works. It should be ready to go at the launch of the Kickstarter.

I too feel that this type of game would be given justice by Ricky.

+1's across the board for Ricky.

Please, no Stuttering Viking.....just too many "ah's" and "uh's" for previews that usually go a bit too long.

As for Rodney, Conan could be a bit too dark/violent/bloody for Rodney's super happy demeanor of late. (Yes, I know he's doing Dead of Winter right now) I love Rodney's work...but it doesn't fit with the barbarian in my opinion.

Ricky would definitely be a good choice, and so would Tox from Crits Happen, I think.

Yikes, Kelly, that's a little harsh! I understand that his style is not your cup of tea; that's fine. I think I like Lance so much precisely because his videos feel really human and intimate, like a buddy in your game group having a conversation about the game with you. Ah, well; different strokes.

I agree with you in this respect, Ricky definitely does an excellent job (watching one of his videos right now, in fact).

I agree with the poster above; the more the merrier; it would be a treat for several reviewers to have an early crack at reviewing the game.

You are right, and I'm sorry for saying that. I think it was my envy speaking.

Apologies to Lance as well.

Since the game is French I would say : Jeux sur la table! whistle
But in English :
Lance
Joel Eddy
Rodney
Dice Tower (I prefer when Tom, Zee and Sam do it together)

I love Rahdo but this game is far from his cup of tea!

Thank you everyone for your feedback. Please continue.

I'm just coming here to say that I was wrong after all, as Rahdo just posted this:

Richard, I am a big Rahdo fan, but I was quite surprised to hear you were interested in Conan. It is a great game but there is clearly a confrontation between the Opponent and the Heroes. I thought you didn't like that kind of games...

As a general rule, Jen and I avoid conflict in games, but there are some games where we enjoy it (so many I have enough for a top10, but voters keep rating it very low on their want to see list).

So Conan could work for us, mostly because of the asymmetry, which we always appreciate (in part why we love Claustrophobia, and enjoy Stronghold, for instance). It's a longshot though... I need to look into it more


So having a Rahdo runthrough for Conan seems like a possibility.

Mmh, although the rules are almost finalized, the designer started working on the rulebook only a short time ago, so I think it will take some time before one can be posted.

Yes and he wants it proofread before.

Just so you know, your propositions here are all being carefully considered.

Also I have a specific question for you. If a preview is done with the Dice Tower, we probably won't have the possibility of getting Tom Vasel.
Instead, we would have to choose between Ryan Metzler, Dan King (the Game Boy Geek) and the Gamer's Remorse team.

Which of these three do you think would be the best ?

Could you not get Sam? It's in his line no? blush
