MB5 Preview Videos: All 8 Videos On One Page

This page contains a collection of all the preview videos posted before MB5.

WEBISODE 1: BACKGROUND

We try to add something new to the World Championships every year. This year we drop the written Worlds preview article and replace it with five preview and prediction videos. The webisodes were fun to shoot, and we hope you enjoy viewing them

In webisode one, co-hosts Andi Osters and Andy Frushour talk about background information for the event, the tournament’s history and the playing format for MB5. Check back on Monday for webisode 2 — a review of the Top 16 players in the world.

One other thing: we need more Monkeyball video, especially action footage from the World Championships. I’m begging someone to shoot some video next weekend and post to YouTube. It doesn’t have to have fancy editing, we just need more video of people playing this game we love. Now enjoy the show (if you can’t see the video below, click here).

WEBISODE 2: TOP 16

Thanks for the positive feedback after webisode #1. I hope you enjoy the rest of them just as much. In webisode two of the MB5 Preview Series we count down the top 16 in the world and offer some predictions on which of those players will make the afternoon session.
