The Action Points Podcast! Episode 83: Long Genre Silver

In this episode:

We chat about genres: what we love, exceptions to what we don’t usually like, and what we think we should like but can’t get into. We also talk about adaptations as Daniel chats about the Walking Dead Season Finale, April’s Fool pranks, talk about some deckbuilding as Adam tells us about Star Realms, discuss mortality and the generation gap with Aaron as he discusses Displacement and Evan tells us about the gorgeous Ori and the Blind Forest and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
