Episode 67: What’s in the Box?

Producer Ross’s father gave him a box, then receded to wherever it is he lurks when not summoned. What could be inside has consumed our every waking thought and sleeping nightmare since we heard of the dark curio’s existence. In this episode, like Pandora, we defy the gods by opening it to see what man was not meant to see.

We also talk about some other stuff, too, I guess.

Episode 66: Quarantine Quarrels

Pipeworks Brewing Co. Forest Fauna India Pale Ale with Centennial Hops, Simcoe Hops, and Spruce Tips (1): If the hosts have to record 80 episodes a week to make up for Producer Ross’s vacation, they’re Drunk Enough to demand an honest-to-god Arthurian Quest in tribute.

Ep. 55: Draw Me Like One of Your French Girls, Alex Ross

The new Patreon milestone is to have Alex Ross draw a portrait of Caleb. Hear us out. We know the idea is absurd and the result will be disgusting. But it will be funny. Funny enough that it’s worth what we presume will be a 50 grand plus commission fee, plus eye-hazard pay. That’s why we’ve launched a GoFundMe to…

What…no? Fine then. Here’s your episode (skulks away)

Fat Orange Cat’s F.O.C.Less Monster–N.E. IPA: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about Bunny Kingdom’s ability to make card drafting fun again.

Ep 54: Pork Rinds Taste Like Christmas

Rob Stith from The Orpheus Protocol joins us again for a very special episode. Well, not very special in the “Saved by the Bell” sense. No one got addicted to caffeine pills or anything. Okay, more addicted to caffeine pills. You know…you know what? Let’s just get down to it.

Lagunitas Willetized Coffee Stout: We bring back the Mixed Six Game Jam to cash in on that sweet, sweet battle royale money.

Independence Brewing Company Austin Amber Beer: Jukebox in Back sees the crew make their dream concert line-up. Needless to say, these shows should probably be marketed to some very disparate demographics.

Crane Brewing Small Ball Saison: In This Was a Mistake, we talk about how much we hate talk radio before sharing a collective anxiety attack because podcasting might not be any different.

Austin Beerworks Pearl-Snap German-Style Pils: Finally Drunk Enough we revisit the Death of the Author, but does that include the Death of Proper Consumption? Is there a “right” way to listen to music? Read a book?

The Mixed Six Live at Gen Con 2018

Hey folks! We’re running a bit behind on Snippets of Adventure due to some health problems (nothing serious; just con crud). 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.
