It’s our one year anniversary! Adam, Chad, and Ryan spend the episode talking about our favs and not-so-favs, our highs and lows, and our last year of board games, the people who play them, and the culture surrounding the hobby.

Our featured game is the End of the World RPG published by Fantasy Flight Games, where the three of us played ourselves doing our best to survive a zombie apocalypse (which our guest Chad GM’d).

Fallout sucks.

Maybe it’s because of the hype that I set up for myself (although Man vs Meeple played no small part in that), or my experience with the very successful video game franchise of the same name. At the end of my first game there weren’t a lot of adjectives I could use to describe my experience other than “… this sucked”.

Adam and Ryan discuss the real reason you see your friends nowadays, gaming groups. Is it easier to turn gamers into friends, or friends into gamers? What do you do with the tag-alongs that just wanted to drink beer and talk about the last episode of Glee? How do you avoid fistfights while trying to pick a game that pleases everyone? All this and more!

Afterwards, Ryan and Adam regale us with stories of the cold war with our feature game, Twilight Struggle. Hear why this one time BGG juggernaut is still worth a play in today’s post-1990’s climate. Ryan wraps up the episode with a few suggestions for those who want a taste of the mechanics without the 4 hour playtime, and a recent recap of his first plays of Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn.
