I was recently contacted by a group back east called DRAW 10 GAMES who were really interested in PARENTHOOD and who asked for a promotional copy for review. I was happy to oblige. They’ve scheduled a full video review for sometime within the next few weeks, but in the meantime, they did post an “unboxing video” through the Periscope service. Here’s the link:
For those who don’t know, “unboxing videos” are pretty much just that: a recording of someone unsealing and opening a game for the first time, capturing not only the internal contents, but also the person’s initial reactions. They have a certain appeal in the gaming hobby, as they give people a chance to evaluate components and packaging and to get a sort of “first impression” without having to buy the game, and which is typically a little more revealing than what’s printed on the outside. For some, these videos are really uninteresting, but others in the hobby just love them. So this one runs about 20 minutes. If you haven’t seen the components of the game yet, you might think about skimming through this video a little bit and checking it out!
