No instructions needed to laugh
I came to this podcast by way of the Knights' live show; and knowing no more about D&D than what I saw on "Community," had a blast.
I was afraid that the podcast wouldn't live up to the magic in the room...but I was wrong. Knights of the Arcade is the best value show in Pittsburgh and across the Interwebs.
Do you get hung up on minutiae, and will it bother your OCD if they venture off of the game rules to tell some extra fart jokes? Then maybe skip it and go back to the dungeon.
If you enjoy ridiculous characters, just enough of a narrative structure to keep the gang from getting stuck in the improv mire, and the occasional dice roll completely screwing things up (and the occasional song), you should really give this a go. I can't say enough about them.
Also, I enjoyed their first detour (podcast-wise, at least) into board games. That's just a personal preference, but I feel like there's enough overlap between the groups to keep us engaged while we wait for the next full episode/quest (and doing Betrayal at Baldur's Gate is a perfect crossover).
Do you like laughing?
The show and the podcast are great! I try to make the show whenever possible, and listen to the podcast when I can't. Heck, I listen to the podcast when I do make it. I don't play D&D but this is still the best show at the Arcade!
I am also REALLY excited they are branching into board games. I love board games, I love the knights! It's a winning combo.
You don't need to love or understand either of those things to love this podcast though. Do you like laughing? Then this is for you!
Bear puns are great!
It's like a Quentin Tarantino movie with buttplugs instead of bullets!
No seriously this show is amazing to see live. Everyone is so animated and is so excited to be there.
