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.
I already named an episode based off a bad hot dog pun…then Spencer did this rating system. Frankly, I’m at a loss. I’ve just been totally sabotaged. Let’s get this over with. The episode is pretty okay, I guess.
Blue Mountain Barrel House Series Dark Hollow: Imperial Stout Aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels: In Dissecting Our Fun, we’ve played Mountains of Madness and enjoyed it. We debate whether it’s really a Lovecraftian game at all, or if perhaps it is the best Lovecraftian board game.
Smartmouth Brewing Company Chaotic Neutral IPA: Armchair Director makes a case for movies destroyed by a single casting choice.
Kindred Spirit Brewing Strawberry Milkshake Ale: Ale brewed with fruit and lactose: In Sportsplainer, Spencer gives us nerds some talking points so we can camouflage ourselves in the endless Lebron James v. Michael Jordan debate.
Virginia Beer Co Wrenish Rye: In the tradition of The Toys That Made Us, James Burns Asks Mixed Six about the toys that made them.
Alewerks Brewing Company Paycheck Porter Robust American Porter with Rich Character: The Mixed Six Mock Draft has to cast a new version of Scooby-Doo using only rock musicians.
Evolution Craft Brewing’s Pine’hop’le Pineapple India Pale Ale: Where is your line for sharing? How do we draw it? Drunk Enough tries to examine the border before tripping over it.

Thanks to the fantastic listener feedback, we’re going to add Hot Takes on Ice into regular rotation. The plan is to record at least two a month (maybe more) everytime we lay down a regular episode. While we wait for Producer Ross to do his editing magic, we’ll drop the mini-casts immediately so you can get that fresh-from-the-grill, whiskey-fueled commentary to ease the wait.
In the future, we’re going to make . This latest one is free though; everyone can try before they buy.
In the episode, we talk about the new reward level, the FX show Legion, and our irrational fixation with Fireball.
