Discussing tabletop and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to

Aug 6, 2014

This week's hosts: Liam, Graham, Cian and Oisin

This week on the Adventuring Party, we play and review the utterly bonkers and tremendously enjoyable LUCHADOR – a dice game that evokes the spirit of Mexican masked wrestling. Be warned, there are some VERY dodgy Mexican accents in here.

  • 25.25: “What is a plethora?” - even more movie references!
  • 30.40: The video isn't actually all that informative, but there's an image on the Kickstarter showing some of the individual special moves that wrestlers will have.
