Some game suggestions for you, Wil. Cosmic Encounters: I can just imagine the rage faces. Wits and Wagers: This game goes over well with everyone... and it's got betting! The Resistance: I would KILL to see a bunch of your funny friends going all paranoid psycho on each other over this one. Battlestar Galactica: SAME!

Fiasco's in there. At one point they are rolling black and white dice and there seem to be a number of index cards. Tale tale signs of Fiasco afoot.

Aha! I thought those dice pools looked familiar.

I see what you did there, Wil. The first tast is free. Amiright? Annndddd, its a great way to spread the word and get more guests. Just think, those celebs are going to go home and play those games with friends and colleagues who in turn are going to ask where they came from. To which the reply will be, "Oh, I got this game for playing on Wil Wheaton's show about board gaming." Evil Wil Wheaton just sits back and waits for the calls to start coming in. Clever, my boy.

Yay, Sean! And I concur. This is a big thing for those of us that love these games. Mixing world series of poker stylings with Dinner for five. Brilliant! Can't wait.

Seconded (or thirded, or... whatever). I think this show is going to Donald Trump Y-UGE! Thanks for helping to expand the hobby, Wil. You are doing the Internet proud. *tear*

I really like Elder Sign. From what I could tell from the snippets of games played in the TableTop trailer, it looks like you were going for games that have lots of what me groups like to call stand up moments. They are those points in games when everyone gets on the edge of their seat when everything is on the line. When you lose... rage face, but when you win, you leap into the air with a mighty yawp! Elder Sign fits that for me, as does Pandemic, as does Small World, well, you get the idea...

Hey, Wil (and Wil's Mom)- I'm not sure if you've heard of this, but the awesome menu planning service that my wife and I use (Relish!... http://relishrelish.com) has a Gluten Free menu planning service as well called GFree (http://www.gfreecuisine.com/). Relish! Literally changed my family's lives. It has really great meals to choose from and then prints out a combined list (sorted by sections of the grocery) of all the ingredients. We love the meals and have been paying customers of the service for a couple of years now. I have not used the GFree site, but I know people who have been diagnosed with CD and their number one fear is figuring out how they are going to change their diet without help and without having to consume a whole bunch of books on diet. If the Relish! is any indicator, GFree might be a useful tool for people newly finding themselves in this predicament. Please don't take this as SPAM. When we wrote about how Relish! reshaped our habits on my wife's blog, the commentors talked about how they were crying when they read our struggles; seeing how closely they resembled their own. It's odd to say that a menu planning service can have that much of an impact, but I think it can (and that's without CD being part of the mix). So, I only offer this as a possible tool (and as a paying member of its sister site) for those facing the challenges of CD. Good luck.

I know it would be a lot of work... and you probably don't have time... but, for purely scientific reasons, it'd be really cool to know what the distributions of the types (number of sides) of dice that you received. From the looks of it, D6's won out, but there seem to be quite a few D20's as well.
