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

Polis, Thousand Year Old Vampire, and Taming Gaming - Ep122

March 1, 2021


00:00 - Dan’s birthday, Rudy’s Pizza, and Many More.

06:49 - Kris's "Consumption to Creation Ratio". Freaking ourselves out with Chris Bissette’s The Wretched, making memories with Thousand Year Old Vampire from Tim Hutchings, and writing poetry with Allison Arth’s Gentleman Bandit.

26:26 - Kosmos Games throw down the gauntlet with Polis, from Fran Diaz and Enrique Corominas - the art for which you can see on our Instagram. It’s a big, heady, heavy experience, where every decision you make has its consequence, and we love it.

43:30 - Exploring the superb resource that is Taming Gaming from Andy Robertson, which highlights video games that examine various themes through a number of lenses, including how suitable for the whole family they are.

All that, and a smart skipping rope, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).
