  1. Another great episode, thank you! I’m with Robb, yet again, with the subject of Pathfinder ACG. I really enjoy it, though I can see clearly what it is. Haven’t played Descent but I think I would enjoy that one as I like fantasy and dungeon crawls in general. Also, Patchwork sounded interesting too.

  2. I am pretty disappointed about that tourettes home you made Patrick. Didn’t you use to work in the mental health field? A really close friend of mine was diagnosed with tourettes on high-school and it was life changing for the worst for him making it very difficult to do the things he used to. I know you didn’t mean anything by it, but please be more aware in the future. Mental illness really isn’t very comical for those affected by it.

    Otherwise great show. I do feel that the game reviews can be strange sometimes. It seems like sometimes your scores don’t align with what you said during the discussion (not so much in this episode, sorry I am usually driving while I listen), also it seems like you use fairly objective criteria but can vary wildly on how you choose to apply them from one game to the next. The complaints you made against Pathfinder could carry over in some ways to descent. Sorry I am not being more concise just a combination of thoughts I have over many episodes. I have been working my way through your episodes from the first one onward.

    Also I was wondering if posting on here is fine or if I am better off posting feedback on bgg or emailing you directly since I am really just trying to talk to you guys directly and not trying to bad mouth the show in front of others or anything.

    Sorry for the lengthy comment.

    1. Actually, I used to run a camp for children who suffer from Tourette’s and am a vocal ally for the community. Rest assured, I did not mean to give offense. I will have to listen back to consider my comments and be more mindful in the future.

      Thank you for pointing this out.

      1. Just re-listened. Wanted to note, it was Jeremy that made the comment to which you objected. I suppose he should have said it was like echolalia not Tourette’s, but I am sure he did not mean to offend either. I think however your point is well taken. Many people’s failure to understand Tourette’s symptoms, causes, and treatment cause them to use it as a shorthand for various similar conditions. We (meaning all of us) also sometimes use it as a punchline, keying off of the popular and largely inaccurate understanding of the condition.

        Thank you again for your feedback.
