    Jurassic Park: Danger! by Ravensburger

    Jurassic Park: Danger! by Ravensburger

    Brock Wilbur (a games writer) and Matthew Monagle (a movie writer) have started a show to talk about board game adaptations of IPs from their worlds. Today's adventure is a Jurassic Park. I know you've probably never heard of Jurassic Park so this will be a fun introduction. Oh, wait? You're everyone, ever? Well. This game makes you feel like you're doing a good dino sprinty panic time. Also you can buy it for like six bucks. This is a hard recommend. Please tell a friend and leave us some feedback!

    Fallout Follow-Up with Andrew Fischer

    Fallout Follow-Up with Andrew Fischer

    One of the goals for Adap-Table is to follow-up on our coverage of board games with creator/designer interviews whenever possible. Right out of the gate, we've got a great one here. Brock and Matt are joined by Andrew Fischer, the game designer of Fantasy Flight Games' Fallout. Andrew has put his spin on some of the best IPs in the games world, and he spends 30 minutes answering all of our questions about the process of adapting a beloved franchise to the tabletop.
