This episode is sponsored by Coffee Snake Studios, an excellent source of TTRPG resources, RPGs, Spells and other content. You can purchase their content on Itchio and follow them on Twitter and Patreon

Richard is joined by John Mizon of SW Megagames to chat about 30 player huge turnabouts of fun. AND ITS MEGA. 

Links of Notes

Megagames are massive day-long experiences that blend roleplaying, board game-style mechanics, social gameplay and model-UN style simulation to a venue filled with anywhere from 30 to 300 players. Though the themes of games can range from sci-fi colony planets all the way to medieval courts, the unifying feature is simulating a massive, confusing crisis or conflict, and seeing how the existing structures and factions deal with the challenges of information and communication that the situation brings.

Board Town Road - L’il Wiz - Make Something Awful

When you want to play the new hotness but everyone wants to play some they know instead. 

A classic with some slightly tabletop lyrics instead.

Board Town Road..

 

Yeah,I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive so I can take them all

I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive so I can take them all.

I got board games in the back,

Board games in my lap Got a special bag,

With board games I can pack.

With the hotness I can source,

(Kickstarters of course.)

Adding to my tally

Spending too much of my lolly.

They are gonna want for nothing (gonna want for nothing)

Of my games, they play nothing

We end up playing nothing.

Always end up chatting,

Catching up and laughing

Always end up playing,

That Mars game that I'm hating,

My life is a Movie

Of Watched it Played and Rulebooks

And learning games each session

Answering their questions

Playing all the new games(Do we have to play a new game?)

They want to play an old game (We know how to play an old game?)

Yeah,I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive, so I can take them all

I'll not play my games to boardgame club,

Next time, I'll leave them in the car..
