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

Parasite, Encore!, and The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine - Ep98

March 1, 2020


00:00 - Miniatures games, what makes BattleTech fun to paint, and why the hobby is oh so therapeutic.

08:43 - The sensory overload of Arcade Club in Bury.

15:09 - The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine is a deceptively tricky trick-taking game that feels incredibly fresh and different.

32:19 - Parasite won best picture at the Oscars, which it fully deserves, and we'll tell you why you MUST see it (without spoiling a thing).

40:03 - Obsessed with roll and write games? Us? Never. Honest. But also: Encore!

48:30 - Some lies about Kit Kat Chunkys.

50:12 - Robyn Zwicker has a question for us this week: "have you ever had a crush on a cartoon character?" Some of the answers will surprise (and perhaps upset) you.

All that, and not burying the lede, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

Quick note! Sam accidentally said that he had bought Encore! when in actual fact it was sent to us by the folk at Coiledspring Games to review. Apologies for that.
