The newest episode of the web series Tabletop has been released. This time they are playing the board game Dixit. If you haven’t seen Tabletop before, it’s a web series that focuses on a different board game every week. Make sure to read my review of Episode 11 – Elder Sign where I give a comprehensive review on my first viewing of the series.
So in this episode, they play the board game Dixit. I actually own Dixit and enjoy it very much. It’s a great party game with very simple rules and beautiful artwork. As you’ll no doubt see from watching the show, Dixit is very much about knowing the people you are playing and how they think. Wil Wheaton does a great job of hosting the show and keeps you once again entertained with his side comments.
I must confess that I don’t know the guest stars very well this episode. Staring with the host Wil Wheaton are Leo Chu (Creator of Afro Samurai), Casey McKinnon (Web series Galacticast), and Beth Riesgraf (Actress in Leverage). However, they all proved entertaining to watch.
One of the unique things about this episode of Tabletop is that, since it’s a party game, you can actually play along with the show. I also found out that I don’t know the people playing very well. I tried guessing the card along with the players and I think I was right only about 10% of the time. So give it a watch and see if you did better than I did. (most likely).
