RogueWatson Reviews – Argent: The Consortium

My longest RogueWatson Review yet covers the complex but excellent worker placement game Argent: the Consortium, designed by Trey Chambers and published by Level 99 Games. It originally launched in 2015, but an improved 2nd edition just released earlier this year.

A thank you to fans.

I’m proud to announce that I have hit quadruple digits on my YouTube channel this month!

I’m incredibly thankful and humbled by all the fans. YouTube has a dubious reputation when it comes to community but for the most part the comments and live stream chats have been nothing but positive and fun.

I’ve been uploading videos to YouTube for years, beginning with poorly streamed Let’s Plays of video games with cheap mics, bad audio, and choppy video quality. It wasn’t until 2015 when I began recording and streaming our Roll20 RPG sessions that we really began to find an audience.

Some of you have been with us since Storm King’s Thunder began, others with Lost Mine of Phandelver and even a few of you still make reference to our Shadowrun campaign. The in-universe jokes, from the Graham Cracker Crew to zombie Tims to Jake from State Farm always put a smile on my face.

A few of you have been asking how you can support the channel and my work. I’ve been looking into some options and researching what methods work best, whether its Amazon affiliate links, Patreon, Ko-fi, or a YouTube partnership.

Rest assured that I will never gate our primary RPG streams behind any kind of paywall. Any monetary support would be purely optional, and help me produce more higher quality videos at a steady pace, particularly extra content like my DMs Guild Reviews, Roll20 Reviews, and board game reviews.

This whole venture began as a labor of love and an effective creative outlet. It warms my heart to see so many of you enjoying it along with us. We have more exciting things planned for the future, including our next D&D campaign where I return to the DM’s chair.

Thank you so much for subscribing to my humble channel, for leaving positive (or constructive!) comments, and for chatting during our weekly live streams. Here’s to the next 1,000 fans!

RogueWatson Reviews – Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate

My next RogueWatson Reviews video covers last year’s D&D re-theming of Betrayal at House on the Hill: Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, published by Avalon Hill Games and Wizards of the Coast.

RogueWatson Reviews is my new board game video series

After reviewing a series of DMs Guild D&D adventures late last year my YouTube channel has been relatively quiet in 2018. I’ve been gearing up for a new project – a board game review series called RogueWatson Reviews.

In this series I’ll highlight recent and semi-recent board games (going back two, maybe three years), including an overview of how they play, running through a sample round, and giving my Pros, Cons, and Final Thoughts.

I’m kicking off this series with Dice Throne –

These videos are much more heavily edited than my DMs Guild and Roll20 Reviews, and require a lot more time and effort to put together. I won’t be able to put them out once a week, for example, but I am shooting for about twice a month, at least to start.

If you have been enjoying my tabletop RPG reviews – fear not! I plan on jumping back into those as well. In a perfect scenario I can stagger these series together, producing videos at a consistent rate. But as a freelancer my work load ebbs and flows, so I’m not ready to commit to a solid schedule.

As always I appreciate kind words and constructive feedback on YouTube as well as here on my blog. Thank you!
