October is here, which means it’s time for our kind-of-annual Spooktober! We’ll be posting spooky one-shots all month to celebrate!

We kick things off with the incredibly atmospheric game Ten Candles. Ten days ago, the world went dark. The sun, moon and stars all vanished from the sky. Then They came and started killing. 

Five days ago, all the power grids overloaded and the world was plunged into even deeper darkness. 

Now, a handful of survivors are trying to make it to Fort Victor. Before the radio died, it seemed like it was a safe haven. But will they be able to make it alive? And what are They going to do to stop them? 

Listen to find out!

What do you get when a group of wacky characters gathers on a grassland planet to compete in an interstellar golf tournament where frogs serve as the balls and very little makes more sense than that last statement?

This game! Grab your nine-irons and your stupid hats, because it’s time for Frolf like it’s never been played before!

To create this session, Erik used the rules for GoGo Golf, by D. G. Chapman! Check it out here!

This week, we have a special alpha test of a new game that Alex is creating. 

Four astronauts are the first humans to ever set foot on Mars. They are the best of the best, but there are challenges to face. They’ll have to deal with equipment failure, an incredibly hostile environment and the issues that arise between them if they want to complete their mission and get off the Red Planet alive. 

“Longshot” is a cooperative storytelling game about overcoming those obstacles and successfully carrying out the mission. We hope you enjoy it!

Also, this episode was mixed and edited by Alex (instead of Ryan, like usual). So if there’s a problem with the audio, blame Erik! But also let us know.

(Editor’s note: Alex here. I came up with the name “Longshot” after the recording, which is why I talk about having to name it in the episode. Don’t get confused!)
