    Geekery in General 268: Gaming in the Backrooms

    Geekery in General 268: Gaming in the Backrooms

    "If you're not careful and no-clip out if reality in wrong areas, you'll end up in the backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, and endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in.


    God save you if hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you…"


    These words describe the Backrooms, a terrifying maze that has captured the imagination of creepypasta and horror fans all over the internet. Al and Chad discuss ways to run a role playing game campaign in this mysterious place.

    Geekery in General 267: Gaming in the Age of COVID

    To say the year 2020 changed the world would be an understatement. But through all the chaos, confusion, and coronavirus the dice continued to roll. With a COVID vaccine finally rolling out health experts believe there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. We can't say for certain when things will get back to normal, but it is safe to say that it will be a few months.


    In this episode Al, Scott, and Chad discuss how COVID and social distancing impacted their gaming habits and how we continued to participate in the hobby we love.

mumphry999 ,

great podcast covering DnD comics and games

Al runs a tight ship, talks about gaming, video and tabletop and board, sometimes has guests and is right now covering a lot of the planes of existence. Cool stuff.

Trip down memory lane!

Great podcast. A real trip down memory lane for those of us who grew up in the 80's and 90's. Definitely check out the YouTube channel when Al plays games.
