Launching a you tube channel - 3 Minute board Games

So, today is a big day for me as it is the launch of my new You tube channel.

3 minute board games is about doing summaries of games in about 3 minutes. There are a lot of long reviews, play through and how to play videos for board games. But no one is doing short summaries. 

That's our goal, make videos about games in a short time frame. 

We will be running a patreon to support this project, pop along and check it out here. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=9257332

Here are the first four videos, watch em, like em, hate em, subscribe :)

GKR Heavy Hitters - Premiere Event



So, thanks to Vomkrieg team member "the Millarnator" I got an invite to the global release of Weta Workshops first foray into board gaming.

GKR:Heavy Hitters. Where the GKR stands for Giant Killer Robots. 


The event was packed, with people spilling out of the building and outside and some people had to line up for well over an hour to get their game. 

There's something fundamentally great about seeing a whole bunch of board gamers from all over Wellington just hanging out, talking about games and telling stories while waiting for their turn to go get their game. 

Some interesting people turned up. Shem Phillips, designer of the North Sea series of games and Bethel Woods turned up to grab his copy. Ahmed, who runs counter culture, the excellent local boardgame cafe was there. And I bumped into Dave from Seriously board, one of NZ best online board game retailers as he was loading his car with nearly a dozen boxes for his customers.

I don't think he will have any trouble getting rid of them :) 





It was a pretty small space inside, especially with everyone lining up to get their copy and heading over to talk to the designers and artists, who were doing box signings. Great to see them turn up and just share their love of games with the fans here. They seemed like top blokes to me. 


Weta were also handing out free beer and food, and that always gets a thumbs up from me. 

Now, as for the game, it's pretty straight forward. Its about fighting with Giant Killer Robots, and hopefully I will have a review of the game up in the near future. It looks like it will be a blast, but no further comments until we get it on the table. 

Until then, here's some quick unboxing photos to tide you over. 

It all depends if Mr Millar lets me near his new toys or not :)

So, hopefully we can some more photos and a session report up for you.
