Episode 56 – Boss Monster vs. Munchkin

Chris and Daniel go into the dungeon alone this week in a very (accidentally) thematic episode in which they will discuss Boss Monster, Munchkin, Dungeons and Dragons 5e and much more. Our versus series is back and this time we’re taking a look at which back-stabbing dungeon crawl does it better – Munchkin or Boss Monster. Listen to find out which you should be playing.

Shout it from the Tabletop

Drew’s not here so all news will be delivered at ground level this week, including the integration of player feedback into the Fifth Edition of Dungeons & Dragons and the upcoming Dreamation 2015 convention in Morristown, NJ, which the full BGA crew will be attending.

Acquisition Disorder Corner

This week’s acquisition disorders are all dungeon-goodness with accessories for D&D 5e such as the new DM screen and spell cards, and the upcoming Munchkin comic book hitting the shelves this week, along with the soon to be released Boss Monster video game and app. Listen to what the guys are eager to pick up this week.

At the Table

Daniel takes the Warlock class for a spin in Dungeons and Dragons 5E, discussing the intricacies of the new class, what makes it unique, and how it stacks up to past iterations in previous D&D editions. The guys also discuss Amun-re, a Knizia classic that finally hit their table recently.

Kicking the Habit

Chris dives back into the Kicking the Habit deep end with a recently launched Kickstarter – Epic PvP: Fantasy. Listen and learn if this game is one you should back, wait on, or avoid completely.

Boss Monster vs. Munchkin Deluxe

Our VS. feature is back and we have Boss Monster and Munchkin Deluxe in the ring this time around. Which game handles the back-stabbing, friendship testing mechanics better in a dungeon-crawling aesthetic? Is it Steve Jackson’s classic or the still strong 8-bit newcomer? Listen and learn which game we pick as the best bet for your light-gaming dollars.
