Hi everybody. I'm Rahdo, and these are my boardgame runthroughs! You can click the logo on the right if you'd like to subscribe on Youtube►►►

What I'm trying to do with these vids is let the viewer develop a really strong understanding of what the game feels like to play. What kind of decisions do you make? What kind of mechanics do you leverage? What kind of resources do you juggle? What interplay is there with your opponents? Etc.

But rather than simply tell you what these features are, I try to show them, with real demonstrations of gameplay. While playing, I'm offering a running commentary of the thought that goes into each decision, so cause and effect can be clearly felt and understood.

If there's a game you'd like to see me cover, be sure to head over to my Request Geeklist to make requests for future videos! Also, check out the Rahdo Runs Through Guild for lots more "behind the scenes" information about the series! And finally, be sure to check out my Rahdo Runs Through... Other Stuff geeklist to keep up to date with all my other videos!
