There's a Dice Tower interview video here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/video/141253/happy-harpy-games/sum...

I'd like to add it to our game page here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/211852/robot-rise

But I see no obvious way to do that. The "videos" section on the game page is only for external links, and the system tells me that I can't add the YT link for this video since it already exists on BGG. What's the secret?

Thanks in advance!

For technical reasons that are out of my depth (not a programmer!), a given video can only be added to a single item in the database. Tom has chosen to add that video to the Publisher page, so it cannot also be added to the Game page.

It's a technical reason that I'm sure could be very easily changed, but I'm hoping the development team is currently 100% working on getting the necessary changes in place so the redesign can be pushed to the rest of the site

While not ideal, you could always create a forum thread in the game that links to the BGG page for the video.
