Rodney Smith

Rodney had a passion for teaching and playing board games that led him to start a Youtube channel in 2011 dedicated to the idea of sharing the hobby. Since then, Watch It Played has fully taught over 100 games and produced over 750 videos, growing to be the number one source for board game instructional content in the hobby. A project that began as a part time hobby from his basement in Prince Edward Island, has turned into full-time work that now has him working with major publishers in the tabletop industry from all over the world… from that same basement.

Keen to spread the hobby further, you’ll find Rodney active on-line and in the community, wherever he goes, answering questions about teaching games, sharing the hobby, and creating online media content.
