Speaking of Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop, he’s crowdfunding Season 3

I have to be honest, I haven’t watched Tabletop.  My excuse is mainly that I don’t get to game very much up on this mountain, and I’m sticking to it.  Still, I know it’s a good program and was quite pleased to hear that he’s bypassing Google and trying to directly fund the next season.   And considering that he’s $422,000 in to his $500,000 goal with just over a month remaining, he’ll make it.

For those not familiar with how Tabletop was initially funded, it all came down to Google wanting to manufacture quality content for YouTube.  They announced that they would be accepting proposals to fund some production, and Felicia Day started working on a proposal for the Geek & Sundry channel.  She approached Wheaton and asked him what he wanted to do if he had the money, and he told her that he wanted to sit around and play board games with friends.  In a nut shell: Tabletop.

Geek & Sundry, along with Tabletop, have been fantastically successful, and the love for Wil’s program is definitely being expressed through donations to his Indiegogo campaign, of which I will be participating.
