Questions:

  • David Carrol: Is there much of a competitive scene of any of these amazing games we play? (the way there is for video games)
  • Ryan: Not a Drow fan. With Tyrants of the Underdark coming out, do you think it’ll be able to transcend its theme like Waterdeep did?
  • Jesse Ferguson What does it take for you to get rid of a board game?
  • Jesse Ferguson: You’ve just walked out of the tattoo parlor with a brand new gaming-related tattoo. Where is it, and what does it look like?

  • NoBeardPirate: what is your favorite Kickstarter board game you have backed?
  • ftcup: Paizo releases a lot of content, and we all assume {R} is up on all of them. What are you looking forward to most?
  • TheDapperDM: What’s your favorite board game to play outside? Assume we’re talking about Portland, so covered, but no protection from “breezes”
  • Alphastream: If you could go to one bar from any movie or tv show, which would it be?
