Hey guys, gals, & nonbinary pals, and welcome to another awesome episode of Game Closet. We’re joined today with a friend from Down Under, Sam Baran, to talk about radio drama, queer theater, and the power & impact of play on our lives. Sam has a really cool show called Tales from Spasming Hill and you should go binge all 10 episodes now. I’ll have a link in the show notes. Also! Let’s start this show right off the bat by saying that the Riverhouse Games patreon is now live!! Hello Patreon backers who are listening to this early! For the rest of you, you can get early access, among other things, by going to the page.
Game Closet: interviewing LGBT+ people in tabletop gaming, creators, fans, anyone! Interviews would talk about personal experiences, games with (or without) LGBT+ representations or themes, or using queer content in gaming. Are you queer or LGBT+ and want to be featured on The Game Closet? Check out our Contact Us page! You can also check out the articles mentioned in the show by checking out our collection of queer/LGBT+ roleplaying resources.
Hello friends, and welcome to another episode of From Scratch, our side podcast about learning new games. We have a great one for y’all today as we sit down with Josh Jordan’s new game, Short Film. You can purchase this game right now on DrivethruRPG. This game is great & so is Josh. I will apologize to every human being who listens to this, we forgot to change the audio input from my crappy laptop mic to the nice Yeti microphone we have so the audio on this one is rrrrrrrrrrrough. Bear with us. Another apology to anyone with ears is needed because we let Dan pick the music for this game and he took us on a wild ride back to middle school. Don’t ask, you’ll figure it out in a sec. Apologies out of the way, here we go!
Stay tuned for the upcoming Riverhouse Games/The Leviathan Files Patreon!
From Scratch: I’ll be bringing a friend or two on each show, giving them five or so random games out of my list of “Games I Haven’t Played Yet”, and having them choose which one sounds good to them. We would then learn the game together from scratch and we would record both our learning of the game as well as a tiny actual play of the game in progress. A lot of people talk about how you can really only get into gaming via the “older cousin” route – someone has to teach you, you don’t usually just pick up a book & learn. This is a way to pick up new games while at the same time exploring the ways we learn how to play.
