Manage episode 300436316 series 2345587
After a stark diversion last time, the Pixel Boys are back with more talk about TV, movies, and Dungeons & Dragons. After an opening conversation about Valve’s new Steam Deck, Alex reveals that he has been watching Schitt’s Creek, much to his co-hosts’ surprise. The rest of the episode is full of conversations on how D&D has evolved over time, the roles of storytelling and mechanics in the game, how it interacts with mix/maxing, and even how it can be used as a therapeutic tool. Oh, and there’s a new D&D themed Magic set.
