Forbidden Island on TableTop with Wil Wheaton

We have exciting news! Forbidden Island is the featured game on the preeminent web series about board games, TableTop!  Tune in and see why everyone is buzzing about our co-operative game.  GAMEWRIGHT-317

If you are unfamiliar with the hit web show on YouTube, actor, writer and geek icon Wil Wheaton hosts a group of his friends to play a board game together.  It is a fast-paced show about tabletop gaming and as stated on it’s website, “can only be described as ‘Celebrity Poker’ for board games.” Their top viewed episode has over a million views and all of that in one year’s time!  We are thrilled to be asked on a show that has such enormous importance in introducing people to the world of board games.  This is a must watch show!

At one point during TableTop, the host Wil Wheaton says this about our game, “The first time I played Forbidden Island, it was before the official release, on the only copy that existed in the world, with the designer Matt Leacock. And now I am playing with my friend who is a real NASA engineer, with my friend who is an award winning science fiction TABLE TOPauthor and my friend who is from the freakin’ Presidents of the United States of America. I can not lose this game!”  This is a great summation of the hilarity that you are in store for but you must watch to find out if they emerge victorious or if they are submerged!
