NPC Aaron and Myself both had the chance to judge THE TABLETOP DEATHMATCH, a game competition put together by the fine folks at Cards Against Humanity! As the episodes air I’ll try to chat with the contestants and get their perspectives, as well as see how their games have progressed!

Next up is Meg McGinley, who designed a game called Pack the Pack. We chat about the switch from cards to dominoes, how tight the podcasting community is, and what she would change about the Deathmatch itself.
