This week the word is Roof, since it happens that both of the nerds just got new rooves on their houses. Then they discuss the scandal currently roiling the D&D world (a situation that has continued to rapidly develop since this was recorded). After a bit of ranting on that, they move on to other topics. Keith talks about finally playing Gloomhaven, which they discuss at some length. Near the end they lower the spoiler curtain to discuss Taskmaster and Wednesday.

This week the word is (N)evermore, since the nerds discuss the Wednesday Addams series, which is set at the Nevermore Academy, as well as the Evermore theme park which was the subject of a recent Jenny Nicholson video. Next, Andy talks about the real meaning of the “Golden Rings” in the Twelve Days of Christmas, and Keith talks about a fan who named their cat Keith Baker. This leads to some discussions about cats and dogs, and Andy talks about the new solitaire rules for Fluxx. Then they yammer about hopes for the new year and other random stuff.
This week the word is Swamped, since Keith just has too much stuff going on right now. He reports on various projects, including the coin for the new version Illimat, the issue of guns in Eberron, Hero Forge minis wearing his hat, and a new micro RPG called Snow Globe. Moving on to other business, they discuss again the Dream Apart / Dream Askew games, how time used to work in D&D, social media upheaval, and Puddles singing Royals. Movie on to media, topics include Bullet Train, the Weird Al Movie, the board game about Rear Window, and movies that only make sense if you’re dreaming. After dropping the Spoiler Curtain, they discuss Andor season 1 at length, along with an episode of Star Trek Prodigy called “All the World’s a Stage.”
