Hi, I'm Rahdo!

(aka Richard Ham)

I used to  make videogames, and now I make videos about boardgames. Years ago, on a whim, I grabbed my iPhone one afternoon and started recording gameplay runthroughs of my favorite board and card games, and uploading them to YouTube. I started out for fun, but it quickly evolved into a full time job where I produce over two hundred hours of content every year! 

You can check out my series at  YOUTUBE.COM/RAHDO, and as a sampler, here's a playlist of some recent runthroughs I've done (click the playlist icon in the top left to see a long list of video choices):



My goal with my videos is always to demonstrate what the game feels like to play, primarily to help like-minded board game geeks choose which of the myriad games on the market are right for them. I tend to focus on "euro"-style games (thinkey, puzzley games that require a lot of strategy and planning) with a special emphasis on the 2 player experience, as I only play games with my wife, Jen. My filming style is intended to put you, the viewer, at the table so you can get a first hand, first person view of the flow and style of gameplay. 

I hope my love of boardgames comes across in everything I produce, and I hope to keep producing, which is where you come in. If you should choose to support the show, there's a few different rewards available, most prominently the opportunity to vote on what games I cover (details  HERE), early access to some videos, and exclusive content only my backers get to see!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask (or check out http://faq.rahdo.com), and otherwise I just want to say thanks for watching, have a very nice day, talk to you later, so long, buh bye! :)
