About Board Game Smackdown


Board Game Smackdown is a live streamed comedy panel show where top comedians play board/card/party/tabletop games live on stage for your entertainment.

It's the brain child of award-winning comedian and UK board-gaming champion James Cook, who does it because he loves comedy and board games - and this is an opportunity to showcase some of the funniest people around AND some of the most awesome games.

It all started as a live show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe festival - since then, it's come back every year bigger and better than the year before.

James would dearly love for Board Game Smackdown to exist outside of the Fringe - and that's where you can help.

Live streaming gives us the opportunity to bring the magic of the live shows direct to your screens.

Any donation is gratefully received and all goes towards making new content - whether it's more live streams, podcasts, live shows or any other way we can think of

We've featured some of the biggest names in live comedy: Gary Delaney, Robin Ince, Laura Lexx, Lloyd Langford, Justin Moorhouse among many more...
And we've played some awesome games: The Resistance, Codenames, Spyfall, Scattergories, The Insider, The Mind among many more...
