We've got it for you, it's the frightfully good Spirit Island. 46:41 - Adam has a great question for us for this episode: "with the next generation of consoles on the horizon, never mind what they look like, how do you think they will differentiate the disc cases from current hardware disc cases?" Thanks pal! 52:05 - The penultimate chapter of that classic epic: The Halfpipe Chronicles. All that, and some ollie watching, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

 Don't Get Got, Jojo Rabbit, and Chuchel - Ep95 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 59:37

00:00 - H. G. Wells, a true literary genius? 05:04 - TwentyPlenty. 11:15 - Don't Get Got from Big Potato Games is a mix of silly party fun and intense paranoia that demands creative thinking and social nous to outwit your loved ones. 33:30 - Jojo Rabbit is Taika Waititi's darkly-tinged comedy about why hate is so stupid, and while it can be an uncomfortable watch, it's a worthy one. 45:46 - In an energetic mood? Then Amanita Design's Chuchel - a riotous combination of puzzler and point-and-click adventure for mobile and PC - is for you. All that, and some rather "unique" CVs, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

Our thoughts on Sam Neill going topless in sci-fi horror movie Event Horizon. 25:07 - Marvel's Spider-Man is wrapped up, but after the game's ejected from the PS4 we wonder if open world narratives work well in video games, and how important roleplaying can be for the overall enjoyment of being in these worlds. 44:25 - Decrypto and its first expansion Laserdrive are brilliantly thematic, 1950s spy-ish board game that really does make you feel like a codebreaker. Another banger from Coiledspring Games, we reckon. 56:38 - The end of the lovely BGG Secret Santa 2019 experience, and jumping in two-feet-first with Multi-Man Publishing's Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #2. All that, and Halo as an adjective, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

Maybe they shouldn't be... 43:51 - A Charity Miles update, and it's a biggie! 46:52 - Our question this episode comes from The Lone Gamesman (@lonegamesman) who asks "are established IPs a good basis for board games, or do you prefer original themes?"

 Dandy Dungeon - Legend of Brave Yamada, Feed Me!, and Roll Dice Gaming - Ep83 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 59:27

00:00 - Roll Dice Gaming is a solid addition to the UK tabletop event calendar, and 2019's weekend was "a good first event" (even if we didn't get a goodie bag!), but it's currently a bit lacking in an identity to call its own. 09:45 - From Gen42, the folks who brought you Hive, comes Feed Me!, which is coming to board game stores this Christmas. We saw it at Roll Dice Gaming and it's a physics-y puzzle game that's a bit Pachinko, a bit Rube Goldberg machine, and more than a little Cut the Rope. 20:25 - Woof. 25:20 - Meditation. Mindfulness. And games like Stardew Valley that transport you to a peaceful, relaxed state of mind. 35:15 - Dandy Dungeon - Legend of Brave Yamada is an odd game with a strong pedigree, that's a blend of puzzle-infused dungeon crawling RPG, and critique of the games industry, and it feels just right on Switch. 45:45 - Our listener question this week comes from our pal Adam... or was it Greg? Anyway, he asks us which real life statistic we would want to know about our own lives. Plus bonus guest appearance from Lisa, who argues with an apostle. All that, and the calming properties of public transport, with Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).
