ENGN 162 – Games for Halloween, and a personal chat with the Mega Meeple

For the first part of this episode, Jason rides solo and brings you some fun for the Halloween holiday. First up is Skulk Hollow (4:10), or Shadow of the Colossus: the board game. Lifeform follows after that (14:59), which is yet another crack at Alien: the board game. Finally, we have the next big, horror-themed expansion for Robinson Crusoe: Mystery Tales (29:09).

After all the gaming fun, Jason is proud to welcome the Mega Meeple, Thomas Grogan, to the pod for the first time. We get into a personal chat about some of the stuff he has struggled with in his life, and how gaming helped him turn things around and find happiness. Like the personal chat before this, if you want to keep things light and fun, please enjoy the gaming-centered content in the first half of the episode. For those who listen on, we hope you find something inspiring in Tom’s story.
