The Staying In Podcast - four pals talk video games, board games, movies, and absolute nonsense

Black Panther, Monikers, and Hunt for the Ring - Ep50

March 1, 2018


How did Kris's mum accidentally get involved in the Copenhagen drug scene?

Could Sam figure out who "not the guy with the bolts" was?

Which one of them manages to casually drop the phrase "Chekhov's Gun" into a conversation?

If you'd like to know the answer to these questions, give this episode a listen.

And there's some other stuff too...

Like why one of us is absolutely head-over-heels in love with Hunt for the Ring from Ares Games, and how that lovely little Lord of the Rings-based board game compares with the much darker Whitehall Mystery from Fantasy Flight.

And how Monikers is a great little party game. And how Dixit is ALSO a great little party game. And how Dixit might just have the edge on Monikers.

Then strap in for a good long discussion on Marvel's Black Panther and why it's funny, progressive, and extraordinary.

All that and more on episode 50, with Sam (@MrSamTurner) and Kris (@DigitalStrider) and occasionally Poppy, having a lovely little bit of nerd chat.

Oh and since you're the best sort of person (the sort of person who reads podcast shownotes), once again a HUGE and heartfelt "thank you" for downloading Staying In. If you've left us a review on your podcast platform of choice then you can add a great big bear hug into the mix from all of us. Also, can you believe some people don't read shownotes? What are they like, eh? All the best jokes for the podcast are in here.

Also a reminder that occasionally we use Amazon affiliate links in these descriptions, so when you click through from us to something on that online store, if you end up buying something there then you get it for the price you normally would, but we get a little kick back from The Very Big Book Seller. We've already got enough gold-plated suits and stretch limousines to last us a lifetime, so rather than pocketing the cash we make from the podcast it goes back into buying nice new equipment so we sound better, or we chuck it into advertising so we can reach even more lovely listener pals like you.
