The Adventuring Party
Discussing table-top and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to.
 

GP: As the first year of The Adventuring Party draws to a close, gather round as Shane, Dave, humbug and Liam host your very own portable digital pub quiz! Get a pencil and some paper because the most right answers sent in wins a thoroughly spiffy box of the new edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Questions may be daft, obscure, silly or unfair, but you should be used to that by now. The quiz will run through February and we'll wrap it up in the first episode of March.

Thanks to everyone for listening, and to everyone who encouraged us, said they like the show, commented on the episodes with something other than ads for World of Warhammer gold, and to our many guests.

Now get answering!
