First: Critical Role is a show in which a group of voice-actors play Dungeons & Dragons together! It’s fun and if you’re interested, you can check it out here.
I’ll admit that I’ve never seen the first season of Geek and Sundry‘s Critical Role, but I couldn’t resist the temptation of watching it after all the online hype around season 2! And ever since that moment… I’m hooked and I’m always looking forward to the moment a new episode airs. It’s a perfect show to ‘watch’ on a second screen while doing some illustration work. I don’t have the time to pick up DnD again, so this certainly scratches that DnD-itch for me. 😉
And we finally played Cthulhu Wars! And the game is so much lighter than I had imagined. Not in weight, of course, the game is ridiculously big… not to mention all the available expansions – but in the terms of game mechanics. I’m usually not the biggest of strategic conquering games, but I really enjoyed Cthulhu Wars and would love to play it again a second time.
