I've been watching the LotR the card game review from the "Watched it Played" series and it was actualy pretty good. It got me into the card game of the Lord of the Rings and now I want to buy it. But I also have other games I would like to get, and a LCG is not really a game that I will actually buy but after playing such hard boardgames by myself, I might just pick up this game.

With that said, are there any other Watch it played video series on youtube for other games like the D&D games, Roborally, Dungeon Run...etc. I'm sure that if there is a game not on my list that is covered by WIP and it's really good, then I will get that game

EDIT; I'm actually on their Youtube channel right now and they have a listings of other games like

Space Hulk,
Dungeon Run
Small World
Summoner Wars
Mansions of Madness

and more

So I am going to be busy this weekend watching every video breakdown by WIP and decide what I will be really buying when I go to the US in two weeks

There's a WIP series of the D&D Wrath of Ashardalon, and Dungeon Run (but give BR a miss if you'll only be soloing)

Going solely by the context, it looks like he meant to write "DR" - in other words, I think he's saying "give Dungeon Run a miss if you'll only be soloing."

Yep that was exactly what I meant :-)

By the way there are some great video series on Mage Knight too - not Watch it Played, but if you go the the Mae Knight section and go to videos, look for "Solo Conquest" by Box of Tricks

Glad to hear you're checking out some of our shows!

One thing I've been curious about... when you go to www.youtube.com/watchitplayed do you see a list of our playlists on your front page? That's how I meant to have it set up and it's what I see when I go there.

Sometimes I get asked if we've covered a particular game, and it makes me think people aren't seeing the list of games right on the page, which makes me wonder if the look is account specific.

When I'm logged into youtube:
It takes me to the feed tab of your page:

http://www.youtube.com/user/WatchItPlayed/feed

When I am logged out of youtube:
It takes me to the featured tab, which lists all the game series you have done:

http://www.youtube.com/watchitplayed

Kind of odd, don't know why it does that but I'm subscribed anyway and just watch the vids from my youtube homepage.

Why would I skip Dungeon Run in terms of solo gaming? I thought DR was sutible to play solo

From his point of view he feels that Dungeon Run is not a one player game. I would agree myself, but as you learned in your thread about DR as a single player game, you can play it however you want.

Really, because two weeks ago you claimed that it wasn't suitable solo in this thread:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/827755/i-am-disapointed-...

Maybe if you started fewer threads you'd be able to keep track of what you think about different games.

So, I spent the whole Saturday watching all of the Watched it play videos

I have seen

Small world
Summoner wars
Space hulk
Super dungeon explorer
Mansions of madness
The D&D game

(well at least the first two parts to decide if I wanted them)

And the last two which I really like the most were
Dungeon Run

And

Lord of the Rings; the card game LCG

I'm a solo gamer, I like to play and control each player. I had experience playing some of the hard games like WoW the adventure game and something easier like Pademic or Dungeon Twister

With that said , I like to know everyone's final thoughts on how would Dungeon Run be like when playing solo controlling all the characters and would LotR card game be a great game to play by yourself?

BTW, I have sent this very same message to Rodney Smith himself in geekmail. This is a copy that is slightly changed and parts deleted where I was like having a conversation to him

Hey Rodney,

It looks like you want to have people see the playlists when they go to youtube rather than just your feed for all of Watch it Played's activity. If so than this url is the gold: http://www.youtube.com/user/WatchItPlayed/videos?view=1

Keep it up!
John

Well actually, I'd really like this to come up by default, as it's what comes up by default for me.

http://www.youtube.com/user/WatchItPlayed/featured

This has the latest video at the top with all the playlists below. But I don't know how to make it so that when visitors come to my channel, it automaticaly directs them to it.

EDIT: Wait! I think I figured it out.

When you go to: http://www.youtube.com/watchitplayed

Does it take you to the "Featured" tab automatically now?

During the whole time you were watching the games being played, you didn't take the time to process how they would play solo, which seems to be your number one criteria?

I think the biggest problem you might have in that situation is determining when to turn the heroes against one another and I wonder if you'd be able to enjoy that sensation as well, playing it solo.

That's probably a tough one for anyone to answer for you.

So you watched numerous videos looking for games that you would like and had to work solo and yet you didn't actually think about what it would be like controlling all of the characters. shake

What do you mean, isn't that what solo is all about?. You become the other players and choose the moves for them. But it would not work if the game has two special character roles like Mansions of Madness
