Board game documentaries / films

Post  paulyg on Wed 30 Jul 2014, 08:59

I just wondered if anyone had seen any good documentaries / programmes / films about board games recently? I imagine that, with the rise in popularity of the hobby recently, there will be more of this stuff around. And I must admit I find it quite fascinating!

I recently got around to watching Going Cardboard which is a feature length documentary about board games, designers and expos (Essen in particular). It's a few years old now (I believe it was show in 2009-10) and it's quite interesting to think about how much has changed since then - in particular the rise of Kickstarter as a path to launching new games (and even self-publishing). The film itself is essentially a bunch of chopped up interviews edited together around particular themes. There isn't really an over-arching story being told, but the people interviewed are interesting enough that I found out quite a bit. There's also another 90 minutes or so of unused footage available as extras as the DVDs.

Anyway, if anyone fancies borrowing the DVD then I can bring it along on a Tuesday night. And let me know what else I should be watching...
