I doubt I need to tell any of you about the awesomeness of Tabletop, but just in case, here’s a link to the show: Tabletop!
You really *must* watch it! Not only does it feature a bunch of games that are perfect for the sort of games night that Dustin likes to host, but they’re also a great chance to see some of the geekiest people in Hollywood play the same games that you or I do! Some of the games that have been featured are old classics, like Settlers of Catan or Munchkin, and some of them I discovered through the show and am desperate to get my hands on, like Fiasco and Dixit.
In fact, so many of the games on the show are such old favorites around the gaming table that it’s become something of a running gag at games night. Whenever something that was featured on the show is pulled out, everyone ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’, then says ‘as seen on Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop!!’. I knew I had to work that into the comic somehow, and Dustin seemed the likeliest choice to deliver a delightfully cheesy line. (Anyone remember ‘wackity wacky, power atacky?‘)
