Geek and Sundry TableTop Breaks Crowdfunding Records

Anyone who needs proof of the surging popularity of tabletop gaming need look no further than the recently concluded Indiegogo campaign for Geek and Sundry’s TableTop Season 3. Gamers around the world contributed over $1.4 million to support the program, setting an all-time crowdfunding record for most funds ever raised by a digital series.

TableTop is hosted by Wil Wheaton, and created by Wheaton and Felicia Day. It’s a web-based series that features notable geeks coming together to chat and play games –think “Celebrity Poker” meets “Dinner for Five.” Day’s production company, Geek & Sundry, launched an Indiegogo campaign on April 5, asking for $500,000 to fund 15 new episodes of the series; fans were so excited to contribute that they gave $261,000 in the first 24 hours (a record on its own), and $1,414,169 by the time the campaign ended on May 10th.

“Geek & Sundry is incredibly grateful for the passionate support towards TableTop from our community, and for helping us exceed our first crowdfunding campaign goal with Indiegogo,” Sheri Bryant, co-founder of Geek & Sundry, said in a statement. “The show exists to bring people together through the love for games, and so we feel honored by the tremendous response TableTop and International TableTop Day continue to receive from fans, brand partners and retailers.”

Since the crowdfunding campaign exceeded its goals so wildly, Geek & Sundry says they’ll use the money to make five bonus episodes of the show, and also create a spin-off program where Wheaton and guests play role-playing games. The untitled RPG show has started development with the view to move into production later in the year, for a 2015 release.

Here’s an episode of TableTop from the program’s second season.
