Orphan Black tabletop gaming!
It’s fun when boardgames pop up on TV. Last weeks episode of TV series “Orphan Black” featured tabletop game “Agricola”, fairly heavily. This isn’t the first time “Orphan Black” has featured tabletop gaming. Last year we saw Cosima and her pal Scott playing “Runewars” (by Fantasy Flight Games) in the episode “Variable and Full of Perturbation”.
“Orphan Black” co-creator John Fawcett is allegedly a huge board gamer, so it’s cool these things are interjected into the series. In this weeks episode “Ruthless in Purpose, and Insidious in Method” we see another tabletop game shout out, in Scott’s apartment we see none other than “Kill Shakespeare” by IDW games.
As well as the big reveals we also see a multitude of tabletop games on the shelf in the lab and also in Scott’s apartment. “Twilight Imperium” (third edition), “Wiz-War”, “Rogue Agent”, “Mansions of Madness”, “Villainy”, “Vasco da Gama”, “Cinque Terre” (maybe?) and “Niagara”. Anyone who recognizes any of the others, hit the comments.
Keep the gaming love coming “Orphan Black”, we like it!
