At this point this article could be nothing other than speculation, as there are conflicting reports depending on where you look on the internet, all with “credible” sources, but according to some sources including this article by the Mirror, the 50th anniversary special could well be the time that Matt Smith hangs up his Bow Tie and regenerates into the Twelfth Doctor.
Now with this potentially on the cards I am going to put forth a few names, I believe could really do justice to the role and the rebooted series. Some have been stated elsewhere, and some I haven’t seen here we go…
Another episode of Tabletop has been released, this time round they are playing extremely casual games, the type of games where it would be strange for each game to last more than 20-30 minutes. I love these games, I tend to break them out while we are waiting for the last player for the main game to show up, or while people are making food orders etc.
The three games they play are Tsuro, Zombie Dice & Get Bit. I for one will very likely be making sure two of these make it into my collection.
Side Note: this episode quite conceivably contains one of the most unbelievable runs of luck known to mankind.
Anything that can attempt to take gaming in its myriad of sources and introduce it to new people in an entertaining manner, in my books, deserves to be supported, encouraged and if possible, shouted from the rooftops.
Wil Wheaton has a new show, TableTop,on the Geek & Sundry channel on YouTube that does just that. Every other Friday a new show airs, where Wheaton and three celebrity guests tackle the tabletop game of the week. At time of writing there have been two episodes, Small World and The Settlers of Catan. The show finds that perfect balance between explaining how the games work and showing the interaction between the players, the banter and all that (otherwise known as the visual signs of people having fun).
I have always been a fan of board games, and after seeing these epsiodes I happened to have gone out and bought SmallWorld and The Settlers of Catan as they happened to not already be in my collection.
On the weeks that a new episode doesn’t air, there have so far been gag reels and other associated content put up on the channel.
Any free web series that results in my wallet emptying must either be illegal or very good, and TableTop is the latter. Check it out… Now… Or Wil will set Sasha the Intern on Fire; he said so himself.
