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

This week we review the boardgame Galaxy Trucker, from designer Vlaada Chvátil - who also made highly popular and mind-breaking boardgames Space Alert (our review here) and Mage Knight. Now, I lost my episode notes for this one, so I've provided actual links and completely fictional show notes below:

  • Galaxy Trucker
  • 0.52: Stu is apparently working on a functional time machine
  • 1.01: I'm pretty sure that's illegal, Liam
  • 11.42: Commedia dell'arte
  • 20.13: We can't possibly do that. Who'd clean up the mess?
  • 30.23: Stu apparently is working on a functional time machine
  • 37.18: Can't stop thinking about Endless Eight from Haruhi Suzumiya, for some reason
  • 42.93: Stu apparently is working on a functional time machine
  • 1,198.01: Stu apparently is working on a functional time machine
  • ∞: GOD HELP US WE LOOKED INTO THE VORTEX AND SOMETHING LOOKED BACK PLEASE MAKE IT STOP

Seem to be having problems with the Irish Gaming forum at the moment, will create a discussion page there as soon as possible.
