Two guys and occasional guests review old roleplaying games.

Customer Reviews


This podcast is great. Its full of awful jokes, gags that run on too long, and just the worst rpg’s you can find. It’s the perfect intersection of comedy roast and tabletop rpgs.
It’s a specific brand of humor that might not be for everyone, but it definitely works for me.

A fun-time goof-em-up

A hilarious hour and a half of bad rpg reviewing. Yeah, they sometimes go on tangents, yeah, they sometimes say immature things,and yeah,sometimes they're really 17 elephants, but I think that adds something to the show.

Three shows, two are great

There are three different shows here, put on by two hilarious improv actors.
1) System Mastery, where they review (mostly) old, bad RPGs. My favorite series: they review both the good and bad parts of a game, and occasionally find a gem they'd love to play. They often stay mostly on-topic, with occasional digressions and rants.
2) Afterthoughts, where they spend about 5 minutes on a slightly-RPG-themed very-random intro, 10 minutes talking more about the game they reviewed in System Mastery, and 45 minutes doing improv-humor while answering listener questions that are only occasionally relevant to RPGs. I'm less fond of this show than I am of System Mastery, but it's still good.
3) Expounded Universe, where they rip apart Star Wars Expanded Universe books. I don't like this show - they're just ripping apart books which are clearly written for an adolescent-male audience. Frankly, you can rip apart *most* YA novels, and it feels like they're just shooting fish in a barrel. I've read a few Star Wars novels, and the quality is *definitely* variable, but I just couldn't get into this one - after listening to the first two Expounded Universe shows, I simply marked the rest as read so I won't have to hear any more.
4) There are occasional Actual Plays of various games, where they bring on a few guests to get enough players. They're generally good.
