Good show

They’ve got episodes about basics and plent of eps just about all sorts of other topics. A great resource for anyone wanting to learn about Dungeon World.

Excellent Dungeon World Resource

Full Disclosure - I’ve only listened to the Dungeon World Basics episodes. But on the strength of those alone, 5 stars. I’ve been deep in crunchy, rules-heavy RPGs for 30+ yrs. and this really helped me grasp a more story-telling rule set in a way that finally appeals to me.

Worth the listen to new or returning gamers

Great show to help those that need advice or just some good ideas to help jumpstart your games.
