Rodney Smith joins us in the third chair. Rodney is the man behind the "Watch It Played" Youtube chanel which features both teaching new board games and allowing viewers to play along by voting for the next move.
Up first Rodney, Craig, and Russ discuss boardgame videography. What does it take to make a board game video and why do it?
Later the three dive into a detailed review of Core Worlds by Stronghold games. Does this sci-fi deck builder have what it takes to get Craig to the table?
All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including:
- Total Fan Girl
- Do You Ever Notice
- When you wish upon a game
- & More
The following fine organizations help make this show possible:
Myriad Games, on behalf of friendly, professional gaming stores everywhere.
Game Salute, latest gaming news, great stores, & more!

It is a shame that the D6G didn't discover Rodney before he developed Watch It Played, because he seems like a natural fit for the team! The rapport seemed natural and not-too-dissimilar from when Hollywood was on the show and seemed like a nice contrast with the surprising awkwardness of Colby and brow-beating of Craig by Neil.
