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!)

This week, Alex runs the gang through his in-development heist game, According to Plan!

A team of extraordinary agents plucked from different points in the timeline make up the Time Cops’ most exclusive team. This time, they are being sent back to 1918 Russia to steal Rasputin’s most…prized possession. And they need to do it before Vladimir Putin, who has also traveled back in time, gets his hands on it to fuel his evil magic!

Can a moody clone of Nikola Tesla, a Japanese yodeler/chicken-mancer, cyborg Paul Bunyan and a floating magical head get the mission done? Probably not! But they’re going to try!

This week, we take on a Star Trek-themed Fiasco. 

Things aren’t great aboard the SCV Wohlsen. The captain’s a drunk, the first officer is mutinous, and the bartender is egging them all on. 

But when presented with the chance to make first contact with an alien race, will the crew come together and be the best they can be? Or will it all turn into a fiasco? Listen to find out!

This Fiasco was created using the playset Where No One Has Gone Before, by Christine Roth.
