If you love Geek & Sundry‘s TableTop and you haven’t heard, the show is going independent, which means they’re crowdfunding season three. In case you don’t know what TableTop is, it’s a show created by geek glitterati Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day for Felica’s Geek & Sundry YouTube network.
“TableTop is an award-winning internet series featured on the Geek & Sundry network on YouTube that explores the wonderful world of Board Gaming. Each week, a new array of geeky guests join host Wil Wheaton to learn a new game and share the joys of board gaming together. “
Why go independent if they already have funding? Well, they’d like to have the freedom to experiment and do different things with this season. So far, the response has been big. They’re well on their way to their $500,000 goal. Once they reach that goal, they’ll make 15 episodes, but if they get to $750,000, they’ll make 20 videos for season three. And, if they raise a million bucks, they’ll make an entirely new spin-off show about RPGs. It would be Wil and friends playing a season-long campaign.
