BGWS 055 – Formula D

Formula D is a remake of a classic roll-and-move car racing game. (10:51)


Welcome back!

Over the last few months, I’ve been going through a lot of thinking about Board Games with Scott.  I have been burning out on the old format, and I’ve decided to make some changes.  I posted a few questions over at Scott’s Stuff (http://www.youtube.com/snicholson), and have done some soul-searching.

Welcome to the new Board Games with Scott!  The biggest change I’ll be making is shortening the shows.  I’m not going to be doing all of the rules, but rather, presenting a broader overview of the game.  I’m removing many of the cut-aways, section breaks, and other time-consuming edits.

I’m also going to be doing some experimentation with technology and format.  It’s akin to starting over, as I’ll be learning again more about creating videos.  I’ve also decided to discontinue the BGWS audio-only feed.

Without further ado, I bring you Formula D!
