Welcome to Twisted Bard Gaming!

We’re a bunch of morons who decided about 8 years too late that they should start a YouTube channel.

We’ve only just begun our journey and we love doing what we do and we think you might like it too and the best way to support us would be by subscribing to our YouTube channel.

Just think, in a few short decades we could be busted for using our fame to encourage children to buy lootboxes and you could be here right at the beginning of that story.

Just hit this link to visit our YouTube channel and subscribe if gaming is your…. thang? Is that what the kids are saying?

Three idiots try and complete as many games as they can in just one life, while being judged for every mistake they make. Join Paddy, Rob & Al as they lay their gaming rep on the line in the name of entertainment.

Weekly videos, every Friday

Rob stutters. He wants you to know that. He wants you to know that so much he decided to make an unrelated series about it.

Join him as he explores the odd and wonderful experiences gaming has to offer and anything else that takes his fancy really. There is nothing he wont do to entertain the masses and he can’t even spell the word shame, so things will definitely get weird. These videos are not for the faint of h, h, heart… get it?

Every Fortnight, Tuesdays (if he can bothered)

Sometimes we can’t be bothered to put the work into making a video so we commit our thoughts to text and try and pass them off as actual journalisms.
