We go back to the game table (and screen) with this episode, in which we briefly discuss the games that have been captivating our attentions as of late. Come join us in Discord and maybe play some with us!
Poppy brought us a whole new array of Malorts from her recent trip to Chicago. Words of the evening: Malort again. Malort spritzer! “Malortness.” “Malort Malaise.” Malort Madness. Malort-related paraphernalia. Micro Malort. Suffering.
(This episode is from a Fall 2021 batch that got left behind due to life getting in the way of editing. Now we’re back on track, so these are coming out as a bundle, first to our awesome Patrons!) Continuing the suffering from our previous episode, we bravely forge forward[…]
Xander and Jacob regale us with a handful of their more lascivious and ridiculous bartending stories. This is our first foray into this topic, and they’ve got plenty more where those came from, so if you want to hear more, let us know! All the whole Poppy forces us to suffer through a series of increasingly disgusting seasonal seltzers from Budweiser.
Oh god, dear gods no. In this episode we regale one another with tales from our twenty-first birthday celebrations, that rite of passage into adulthood that we drinking Americans treasure so dearly. Be afraid.
We’re back with another Character Jam! This time we’re doing another DCC spin-off, and it’s a glorious one: Blackout in Crater Valley! It’s a game about feeding a bunch of 1980s teenagers to a Halloween Nightmare, and it’s a perfect new addition to what might hopefully become a long tradition of running DCC games on the spookiest night of the year. Give us a listen and laugh along at all of the awesome new character options in this Stranger Things-esque adventure module!
Xander recounts his recent experiences encountering a whole new trend of armed private security guards working the Old Town Portland nightlife.
In this episode we talk (and argue) about pizza. Apparently some guys from some place or something wrote some ridiculously expensive snobbish books about the best pizza in the country, and apparently they say Portland wins. As if! Anyway, if you want to listen to us argue about pizza and lament the loss of one of the best places in town, this one’s for you.
Now that vaccinations are plentiful and a lot of the mask and closure mandates are lifting, folks are heading out in droves to go back to their favorite bars – should they still exist, of course. Many of our favorite watering holes unfortunately did not survive the lockdown months, and we deeply lament their passing. Fortunately, our resident “best-dressed man you’ll ever hear” bartender Dr. Xander Gerrymander is back behind the taps and slinging drinks for all of us drunken plebes. In this episode, we talk with Xander about what the bar life is like now that everyone is heading “Back to the Bar” in Summer of 2021.
After a short break for some summer travels, we’re back at the mics with a new batch of fun! This time We’re drinking a mix of McMenamins whiskeys and ales while Xander gives us an informative dive into the history of Portland’s own famous chain of McMenamins resorts and brewpubs.
