- Actor Allusion:
- The Red Stapler: Dubbed "the Wheaton Effect", there's been evidence that games featured on the show get a huge bump in sales and interest.
- Demand for Tsuro in the US was so high, the company's stock was completely exhausted and it was unavailable for sale anywhere.
- Keith Baker, best known as the creator of the Eberron campaign setting for D&D, also created the card game Gloom, which was showcased in season one. At a game design panel at DragonCon 2013, he confirmed that sales of Gloom ended up with a four-fold increase due to this.
- What Could Have Been: The show almost had uncensored swearing, until the higher ups convinced Wil to censor out the bleeps. The executive meddling was not bad, as Wil states that he was happy with this decision, as he managed to get a larger audience than he originally thought, leading to a Season 3 episode where Wil played Catan Junior with "actual human children". A notable exception was the Cards Against Humanity episode, which was completely uncensored...but it's Cards Against Humanity. Go dirty or go home.
