The focus of our series is to teach you how to play a game and then show it played so you can decide for yourself if the game would be a good fit for you.

We also try to involve our viewers in the play through, so you can help us make decisions between episodes.

If you want to see any of our past videos, you can easily check out our Geeklist: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/85392/watch-it-played-vide...

We'd love to have you along for the ride for this play through as well!

First Game play episode is up in the OP, and although I will update the OP when the series is over, I won't be updating it with each episode as we go, so subscribe to our channel if you want to stay up to date as things go live.

Awesome, thanks!

Edit: Cool move with the pop-up cards. Just to note, I like the way you ended this, with you playing for a while and then asking about the next move to take only at the end of the episode. I absolutely love what you do for your fans, but the Mice & Mystics playthrough felt like it was moving through tar it was so slow.

Glad you liked it. It's the nature of the different games. They'll all have a different kind of pace which will appeal to different kinds of gamers. I enjoy doing different games for this reason, it helps spread out what will appeal to different kinds of viewers. Hopefully if we lose someone in one game, they might come back for a different one.

Hoping to get another episode recorded on Sunday and see if we can exercise some RVM (Responsible Villain Management).

As usual your video is awesome!
I think you can do even more turns in one episode though, because as a deckbuilder the player's move is really obvious.

Thanks Bowie!

Actually, the reason we end an episode at a certain point has to do with the length of time it takes to record and edit. It usually doesn't have much to do with the game at all

And then we also have to keep in mind the final legnth of episode we are shooting for (usually under 15 minutes).

The next episode is uploading as we speak. Assuming our editors find no errors, it'll be posted later tonight!

That's awesome! BTW, are you planning on doing a bloodbowl playthrough in the future? I am a fan of the computer game, but it is awfully tough to find face-to-face opponent as it requires a huge investment of time and money, especially since I do not live in the US(I think I am the only pin on Hong Kong on your map).

At this point I'm not sure. I don't know how to play myself yet, although I hope to learn.

I will cover miniatures games on my show, but I may pick some ones that are a little cheaper and more readily available.

Put the rest of the episodes into the OP. Hope this gave a good idea for how the game works.

Until the next series, keep your capes tucked in and your masks on.
