Tabletop provides examples of the following tropes: Edit

  • Adorkable: Amy Dallen from Episode 4. So much.
  • Colbert Bump: Anecdotal evidence suggests that games featured on the show have seen increased sales.
  • Foreign Sounding Gibberish: Ryan's "Hawaiian chant to repel sharks".
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Wil's wheat puns in episode 2.
  • Million-to-One Chance: The odds of Ryan rolling ten brains on his first turn in Zombie Dice approach infinity. Wil speculates that, in order to balance his luck out, somewhere in the universe a planet spontaneously imploded.
  • Tempting Fate: In episode 3, Wil talks about how he likes Zombie Dice because nobody ever gets out to a huge lead. Cue Ryan getting ten brains on the first turn!
