‘Bored Gamers’ is a weekly 1 hour show premièring on The Latest TV on Freeview channel 8 from September 2014. Taking a humorous and irreverent look at all things gaming – in a British television first – Bored Gamers combines the exciting worlds of video and adult board gaming, to bring the viewer up to date news, reviews, interviews and much more.
Incorporating an easy-going every-man style, presenters, gaming enthusiasts and self proclaimed ‘non-experts’ Jim Devereaux and Greg Marshall review the latest video and board game releases as well as previous classics. Utilising the ‘out of five stars’ reviewing method, Bored Gamers also introduces the ‘Boredometer’, a gauge based tool to review the re-playability and longevity of game play, in short – the boredom threshold.
Alongside reviews, the programme includes exciting feature segments as the Bored Gamers attend conventions, meet manufacturers and designers and much more, to explore every facet of gaming. Each week also features an interviewed studio guest, as we delve into their insights and experiences in the world of gaming and invite them to take the communal guest retro video game challenge, as we monitor each series who has the requisite skills to top the leader board!
In keeping with its technological content, Bored Gamers encourages viewer input via dedicated Facebook and Twitter pages as well as releasing content via various media to supplement the weekly program, including podcasts, web episodes and live Q&A sessions.
Programme producers and presenters Jim Devereaux and Greg Marshall have over 30 years experience between them, both behind and in front of the camera, as well as a plethora of stage and entertainment work.
Let the games begin!
