It’s our one hundred fiftieth episode, and we are excited! We’ve got a lot of people to thank, of course, and spend a couple minutes at the top of the show doing that. We’ve also got a touch of podcast business, and a mention of a recent episode of the Marengo Holy Happy Hour radio show that Peter appeared on to talk about gaming and Saving the Game. Finally, Grant has a specific shoutout to give to his friends Patrick and Tyler for helping with his Vampire game questions. (If you want a chance to play in their incredible games, by the way, check out The Gauntlet!) Oh, and there’s an airhorn.
Our incredibly timely Patreon question comes from Kenning, who asks “What is your favorite episode of this podcast so far?”
After our Scripture readings, we start in on our topic proper: Why we love games! Our answers are mostly about stories and experiences, but also systems, community, self-exploration, and more. Naturally, we want to hear yours as well!
Also mentioned in this episode: The Miskatonic University board game; Epidiah Ravachol, A Scoundrel in the Deep, and Worlds Without Master; One Shot’s actual play of A Scoundrel in the Deep; LoadingReadyRun; and Adam Koebel.
Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11, John 13:35, Acts 2:46-47, Hebrews 10:23-25
