Links: Board Games with Scott

Today's featured link is a pretty interesting video blog - "Board Games with Scott." It's a show that explores top-rated alternative, independent, and European-type board games. In each installment, host Scott Nicholson describes a board game from top to bottom, demonstrating basic gameplay, the game's physical components, and the strategies that may be necessary to play the game well. Here's an example:

The show works, I think, because of Scott's naturally easy-going demeanor. Anybody who doesn't mind having people on the Internet watch him LARPing has some serious stones. I wish he'd go through some of the all-time classics (like "Tigris & Euphrates"), but all in all, Scott's reviews are essential if you're on the fence about a strange new board game.
