The Dragon's Tomb

is creating board game tutorial videos

Everyone hates learning the rules to tabletop games. It's like going to one of those long timeshare presentations before getting your free vacation: if you want to have fun, you have to suffer through boring torture first.

That is... until now!

My name is Jeff Kornberg, and I make "How To Play" board game tutorial videos on my channel "The Dragon's Tomb." 

A lot of other YouTube channels currently make similar kinds of videos, but most of them get the rules wrong, go on too long, or have boring hosts who are nerdy.

My channel aims to fix all that
.
Each one of my videos concisely covers all the rules of each game, while being hosted by someone who isn't a nerd (me). Watch It Played had this to say about my channel: "Well, I'm finished doing board game tutorials. These can't be topped. It was a fun run while it lasted."

My collection of board games is currently limited, and it's going to become very expensive constantly buying new games to explain. Supporting me on Patreon will help ensure a future for my channel, providing a never-ending supply of games for me to teach.

I am planning on making a "How To Play" video for every board game that exists, so if you get a new game, please wait until I make a video for it before attempting to play.

We are just beginning now, but I hope to help create a world where everyone knows the rules to every board game. I'd love for you to help be a part of that.

Thanks everyone!

Rewards:

  • The rewards from all previous tiers. 
  • Once per year, you get to choose a game for me to make a "How To Play" video for. (Exact posting timeline is TBD)
  • I will make the video sometime after your cumulative contributions cover the cost of your game choice and $40 on top of that. (This is just so people can't pick a cheap game, pledge for a month or two, and then un-pledge right away.)


NOTE: There are tons of popular games (indie and mainstream) that might take me years to get to; think of this as a way to bump your favorite one up to the front of the line.  Your choice doesn't need to be a mainstream game, but it should be one that a lot of people will still be able to appreciate. Please no suggestions that are TOO niche.... if you are unsure, feel free to message me before pledging!

Goals
$203 of $1,000,000 per month
Once I reach my goal of $1,000,000 per month, I will finally have enough money to make a "How To Play" video for every board game that exists.
