In this episode, Mitch and Jason get a little kinky… oh no, wait. Wrong dungeon! What follows is some meanderous rambling as we discuss our experience with D&D, including personal history, pop culture, Vin Diesel, Jason’s secret desire to be a quaint hobbit and more. There’s no show times for this one, as it’s pretty fluid, but listen along for talk about Dungeons and Dragons in popular culture, and appraisals of 4th and 5th edition and Pathfinder. A few links for clarification and general clickery. (Also, apologies to Mitch and all the Kickstarters mentioned too. This took me longer than usual to get up, so none of the timely information is timely anymore!) Continue reading →

Tablepop 5: do board games dream of electric tokens?
This episode, we jack in and log on to Matrix and tackle the cyberpunk genre.

A special mini-episode of Tablepop, where we talk about a special thing each. Mitch talks about his experience as a Magic: The Gathering initiate (1:00-16:30) and Jason talks about the ideas behind his game Hedron (16:35 – end), now on Kickstarter. Please forgive, Jason’s poor explanation of Star Trek races and our failure to work out what the plural of appendix is.
Godzilla SPOILERS warning, also SWEARS! Also also Jason lied when he said Hedron would be available to play at GO Lounge (he is a bad man) but it’s still free on the internet! 9:00 is where the actual spoiler start. 20:15 is where the games start. 46:20 wraps up with what Mitch and Jason are doing and producing. Mitch’s new book Everdark Realms: The Darkening can be found at www.ouroborusbooks.com; Jason’s game Hedron can be found at www.endgamegames.com/hedron
This episode we tackle the zombie hordes. There’s less inflections at the end of sentences this week, but lots of things and stuff. We also get a little carried away, and double the episode length. We’ll get better!
