It’s inevitable that in running a Kickstarter campaign for a politically-themed tabletop game, that there are going to be times when you get tired out and need to unwind with a bit of TV. The thing is, that TV is obviously going to be House of Cards and you’re totally going to binge watch all 52 episodes in one go.

So here’s what I decided to do, while re-watching all 52 episodes of Machiavellian nerd candy, I’m going to do commentary on every episode on what Frank Underwood and his shadowy posse get up to using Statecraft cards, art, and make loads of niche political references I barely understand.

I have all the gear and absolutely no idea, so let’s see how this goes…

Each episode I’m going to do a 15 second video summary, give the episode a Machiavelli rating out of 10 and assign ‘Frank’s Favourite Card’ which matches the tone of the episode best from the core game’s 216 cards.

Here’re some examples!

So here goes.

Wish me luck!
