Wil Wheaton Crowdfunds A Third Season Of ‘Tabletop’

Posted by Bob Muir on Apr 8, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections |


Wil Wheaton has sure gone places, moving away from Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Wesley Crusher to become a geek icon. He co-created Tabletop, a web series about board games, with fellow geek icon Felicia Day. Each episode features Wheaton playing a different tabletop game with various guests, explaining the game, testing it out, and having a good time. After two seasons running on Geek and Sundry with funding from Google, Tabletop is striking out on its own. Wheaton is crowdfunding a third season to take full control and stabilize the show: producing more episodes, increasing production values, and releasing episodes more consistently. As with most crowdfunding ventures, there are plenty of rewards, ranging from a digital high-five to an exclusive episode to signed board games. Wheaton is asking for $500,000 for 15 episodes, but if the campaign hits $750,000, they’ll make 20; if $1 million is raised, the team will launch a brand-new show about RPGs (such as Dungeons & Dragons). The campaign has already hit $400,000 in only a few days, so that last idea is entirely possible!

Hopefully Wheaton doesn’t have to do too much to balance this project and his upcoming The Wil Wheaton Project on SyFy. But more importantly, Wheaton has disclosed his favorite burrito place in Burbank to my girlfriend on Twitter, so hey, that’s what I’m concerned about right now.
