The Mixed Six Podcast

Beers. Board games. Pop culture. And a little drunken philosophy.

The Mixed Six Live at Gen Con 2018

But we didn’t want to leave everyone hanging while we waited to record again. Here’s a recording of the MX6 Live show at GenCon 2018 to tide you over. Special thanks to Adam from The Roleplaying Exchange for recording the proceedings. And thanks to super-fan Maddy for running the microphones around.

Country Boy Brewing’s Key Lime Cougar Bait: Finally Drunk Enough to do a Roger Ebert impression, we discuss the denominational crisis brought about by playing a backer-donated copy of Tales from the Arabian Nights. What does it mean to be a game?
