Show Notes

This is the first episode of our Visigoths vs Mall Goths series, a game where you play time displaced Visigoths in a 90’s mall where, naturally, you are enemies with the mall goths that inhabit said mall. We welcome a special guest to cover this game with us, Lucian Kahn, designer of Visigoths vs Mall Goths, and much more, and we had a blast recording this series with him!
