Dark Souls is hands-down one of the most difficult and punishing board games ever to hit the market...and Aaron & Liz loved every minute of it.
Big thanks to Ed Soderberg and Danny Bass of Ironrise Games for jumping into this game with our hosts! Check out Ironrise Games here!

This episode is a bit different from what we're used to, but for good reason.
Liz & Aaron spent the last two weeks playing a variety of games, namely Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, and Marvel Heroes Omega. They also became obsessed with the BBC show The Great British Baking Show, and had to make some decisions. This episode is more centered around how nostalgia can seep in and affect our choices, how that same nostalgia can trick us, and knowing how to spend your time in the best way possible. Enjoy!
--- Check out Marvel Heroes Omega here: https://marvelheroes.com/about
We recommend playing Marvel Heroes Omega out of the three games we discussed on this episode because, while it's not perfect, it's got the best gameplay and character selection!
(I mean come ON, it has Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Spider-Gwen, Jane Foster Thor, and some decent Captain America costumes!)
