Spoiler: Episode 42 was dead the whole time!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I love Halloween, and so I am super excited about this episode. In this one, we talk all about running a spooky scary tabletop game- how to set the tone, how to create a good atmosphere, and the very nature of what makes something scary. Jeff and I had a ton of fun making it, and I hope you have a ton of fun listening to it! So turn down the lights, spark up some candles, and rev up your chainsaw as this gem plays on the record player. Don't mind the screams- you get used to them eventually.
