This week, we’re talking about positive metagaming! First, we catch up a bit and recap what games we’ve played recently (including Peter’s terrifying encounter with a flock of seagulls and Jenny’s Beyond the Wall game.) Then, Grant goes on for a while about the Link to the Past Randomizer race at AGDQ 2018 (seriously, it’s fascinating.) We also answer a simple question from Patreon supporter Francisco, who asks if we prefer roller coasters or 4D immersive movie rides.

Then, after our Scripture reading, we delve into various ways players should be metagaming at their table. (No, seriously, ignore or correct Wikipedia’s outdated opinion on this.) We cover everything from facilitating productive play, to buy-in, to content management, and much more. Enjoy, share, and as always, comment below!

Scripture: 2 Kings 6:15-17, Proverbs 25:25-27, Acts 23:6-10
