Episode 378 - The Bestiary

This episode makes very little sense. We talk about animals and monsters in roleplaying games, but this mostly consists of the question “Who is your favorite bear?”

Episode 267 - Wild Speculation

What if D&D wasn’t the first RPG? What if Magic: the Gathering wasn’t the first CCG? We alternate history our own little corner of the hobby, as if that was a good idea.

Episode 220 - Gaming the System

When does min-maxing become power gaming? When does power gaming become munchkinism? Why are some of these things good and others bad? Which ones are good? How can I get out of this leading question mode? Help?

Episode 163 - Comedy RPGs

All we know is that we’re not funny. We discuss how to bring humor into games, what the best comedy RPGs are, and lots of personal stories. Sorry.

Episode 154 - Genres

Genres are talked about. Especially which genres we haven’t done anything with but want to. Along the way, we discuss other weighty matters of the day, like our confusion over hard sci-fi and Dale’s awesome Conan game idea.

Episode 139 - Jim’s Gamer Experiment

Jim’s latest game has come to a close and it was…different. We have a round table discussion about the differentness. For some odd reason, the sound is kinda muffled on this episode. Apologies for the mysterious sound quality.
