Topic of Discussion

Misdirected Mark talked about death mechanics in their ep 153 and that got me thinking about Dead Games so I figured Sean and I would talk about ‘em.

Dead Games: A game that is no longer in print and/or supported

  • What’s your favorite dead game?
  • Do you still play it?
  • What’s the fun in playing a dead game?
  • Do you need the “support” from the creator/publisher?
