I have picked up several games after having seen them on TableTop. Dixit has been a real hit with my friends and family (several people have gone and bought their own copies). Most recently, I got Elder Sign for my brother because I knew, from watching TableTop, that it was a game he would really enjoy and my family of varying tastes would enjoy playing it with him.
While I was watching a rough cut of the Lords of Waterdeep episode of Tabletop, I twittered: “‘Arcane Mishap Blamed for Owlbear Situation’ - Headline in the Waterdeep Gazette”.
My editor responded by sending me this screencap from the episode.
“But what the hell, I told myself, it wasn’t as if I were one of them or even competing with them, for heaven’s sake, I was merely a disinterested spectator at the Banquet of Life. The scientist dropping into the zoo at feeding time. That is what I told myself.”
