About Rahdo

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 hundreds of 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 (and paid contributors to my channel) have done (click the playlist icon in the top right to see a list of the 200 most recent runthroughs):

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 and little or no player conflict) 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 every month (details HERE), early access to gameplay videos (ad-free!), and exclusive content only my backers get to see! And if you decide to back on a yearly basis instead of a monthly one, you get an 8% discount, which equals one month each year for free!

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! :)
