The Cubist is a weekly show streamed live on YouTube that discusses various topics surrounding all aspects of tabletop gaming. The hosts and guests provide brief reviews of games they've played recently (using their "Buy It, Play It, Forget It, or BURN IT" rating scale), followed by a Main Topic that the guest has interest or specialty in, and ending with a Rapid Fire segment that always gets some laughs. Because the show is streamed live, the hosts and guests also are able to interact with viewers in real-time and answer questions our viewers may have, which makes it a truly interactive and engaging show.
