A monthly podcast dedicated to the history, evolution, present state, and future potential of our favorite board games.

Episode 15 - Adventure Games (complete episode)

October 2, 2019

It's Episode 15, Adventure Games, now complete in one file. It turns out that there wasn't quite as much material left for Part 2 as I thought, and also that I accidentally uploaded Part 1 as an unnecessarily large stereo file, so it seemed best to just replace the whole thing. Apologies to those of you who have already downloaded and listened to Part 1; you can skip to 1:03:39 to pick up with the new material.

This month:

  • Frank and Brian tell the younglings about the Dark Times.
  • We discuss the glories of 1970s string art. Yes, this was really a thing.
  • Frank wills a game into existence retroactively.
  • We introduce you to The Gothic Game, a charming little murderfest that has a new edition coming out soon, and also had a musical written for it once, very.
  • We talk about Kingdom Death: Monster a lot.

NOTE: This episode is somewhat more NSFW than usual, because...well, because we talk about Kingdom Death: Monster a lot. And Dungeon Degenerates. And, er, Wikipedia
