I am so easily amused.

Fungi Good morning, Europe. Good Afternoon, Australia. Go to bed, North America.

I’m ready for dream time, Mister Bubbles

I continue to have way more fun with my Makerbot than I ever thought possible. A few days ago, I printed out a Big Daddy figure, from one of my favourite video games of all time, Bioshock. I used a glow-in-the-dark filament, and the result looks like this: I got the model from Thingiverse. It [...]

There’s a harbor lost within the reeds.

I was getting my things together to go downtown, when my phone buzzed in my pocket. I pulled it out and opened a text message from my son, Nolan, which read: #BURRITOWATCH2014? I smiled, and replied that I had an appointment downtown, but would be up for #burritowatch2014 as soon as I was finished, if [...]

the stuff dreams are made of

I recently got a Makerbot 3D printer, and I’ve been having a whole lot of fun using it to make silly things. Last night, though, I made my first legitimately beautiful object: The Maltese Falcon. It took about seven hours to make, and these pictures show it inside my Replicator 2 (yes, I have a [...]

Goddammit, Popular Science. You had one job.

I used to subscribe to a lot of magazines, but over the years I’ve let all the subscriptions lapse. If I really want to read something, I pick it up on a newsstand, or read it online. One of the great things about my Kindle, for instance, is how I can grab an individual issue [...]

Happy Christmas, From Team Wheaton

I just haven’t had any Christmas Spirit this year. We’ve both been very busy, had an unexpected death in the family, and have sort of felt like doing Christmas stuff (decorating, etc.) was just Another Fucking Thing To Deal With™. We weren’t unhappy about it or anything, but we don’t give gifts in our family, [...]

it’s a christmas miracle.

Anne loves puns more than anything else in the world. She is so easily amused, she’ll spend hours trying to craft the best pun, and always has something ready for any situation. She’s like the Wayne Gretzky of dad jokes, too. Being as easily amused as I am, I’m a great audience for all of [...]

the friendship web

I loved the recent Big Bang Theory where everyone imagined what their lives would be like without Sheldon. I was completely surprised to see that I was on the friendship web that Amy made, though, and when this came up on the screen, there was much rejoicing and squeeing in Castle Wheaton. I’m such a [...]

one of the simple joys in life

Last night, Marlowe discovered the simple joy of falling asleep in front of the fireplace. Anne and I binged on four episodes of Mad Men, and I think Marlowe got up once the entire time.

Save the wave from The Reckoning!

I really love this shirt that I helped design, which is at shirt.woot: I’ve wanted to do something like this, which combines the Great Wave of Kanagawa with gaming, and I was super excited when the artists at shirt.woot helped take the idea I had in my head and make it a thing you can [...]

Escape From Waterdeep

When we’re in production on Tabletop, we shoot two episodes a day. Each episode takes around five hours to film, and by the end of the fourth or fifth day in a week, we all get a little silly from sleep deprivation. Before they leave for the day, we ask all the players to sign [...]

I Will NOT Apologize for Makint Another Stupid Rick Grimes Dad Joke Meme.

This is one of Anne’s very favorite dad jokes. In other news, I think I figured out how to make fonts look snazzy in GIMP.

I spent way too much time on this.

I. Freaking. LOVE. Dad jokes, and every single Rick Grimes Dad Joke meme I’ve seen has made me laugh harder than I thought it would. So I thought about this dumb dad joke tonight, and decided that I’d make a Rick Grimes Dad Joke of my own. I suck at Photoshop (or, in my case, [...]

one small part of a pretty great life

“My point is, there was a time when I thought I would never get out of Wesley Crusher’s shadow, but now that’s just a small part of a pretty great life, and it’s a part that I’m glad is there.” The interstate highways in Texas go on forever, it seems, between major cities.  For hundreds [...]

New Tabletop: Qwirkle and 12 Days

Today’s new Tabletop features two wonderful, fast, easy to learn games that are perfect for family gatherings: Qwirkle and 12 Days. I love this episode because I got to play with my childhood friend, Meredith Salenger, and my stepson, Nolan. Oh, and Kelly Hu played with us, too, and look at how cool I play [...]

RPGs to play with your kids

I just found out about the latest Bundle of Holding, which is a collection of amazing RPGs that you can play with your kids. This is the perfect way to introduce your children to roleplaying games, and you can do … Continue reading ...

The Happiest Days of Our Lives: Deluxe Audio Edition

I’ve been busy recording audiobooks, including a few of my own. Today, I complete the audio trifecta of Original Wil Wheaton Works Read By Me, Wil Wheaton, with the release of The Happiest Days of Our Lives: The Deluxe Audio … Continue reading ?

Not everyone is going to like the thing you made, and that’s okay

I recently worked on an upcoming video game from Double Fine, called Broken Age. I got to play a really fun character, and I had a super good time working with one of my favorite directors in the industry. Double … Continue reading ...

mona lisas and mad hatters

When I was little, like, really little, before my brother was born in 1976, my parents were really into Elton John. One of my earliest childhood memories is sitting in the living room of our tiny house in the valley … Continue readi...
