In this episode, we talk about the games we played at the most recent JIGG (Japan’s International Gamers Guild) Game Day and gamer etiquette.
Here’s a list of the rules of etiquette that didn’t make the episode:
Don’t eat over the communal pizza.
Trash talking is fine.
Never ever allow do-overs, except under the following 83 circumstances…
Yujiro and Kristos guest host. Actually, Wayne and Lyal just do Kristos impressions.
In this episode, we discuss board games with our special guest, Kristos.
Kristos talks about making his wife cry, which is related to board games. Chris mentions nun rape, which isn’t related to board games. Lyal does sound effects, which, oddly, is related to board games. Wayne threatens to “get started” on Toys ‘R’ Us (again), which, while related to board games, would have been cut (again).
Find out which board game is the best on the market and which one is the worst. Kristos also shares his secret on how to make Monopoly even more boring.
Everything you always wanted to know about pen-and-paper role-playing games but were afraid (or couldn’t be bothered) to ask.
The Idle Red Hands are blessed with some great friends who, despite having no clue about RPGs, listen to our podcast. One recommended that we record an episode that explains some of the basic concepts to help him follow along, so we did. This is for him and all those who have ever wondered why some people choose to spend their Saturday nights rolling dice.
If you’re an experienced gamer, have a listen to see if you agree with our descriptions, definitions, and recommendations.
