SPOILER EPISODES

wide-ts-banner.png

In 2015, the gaming landscape evolved with the emergence of consumable story games. Games like Pandemic: Legacy and T.I.M.E Stories give players the opportunity to experience gaming in a new way. In the case of T.I.M.E stories, board gaming and role playing combine in a modular framework with scenarios that plug into a main 'console.' These sprawling scenarios could yield significantly different narratives for different game groups. No two playthroughs are alike.

In an attempt to capture the intensity of our experiences, we started recording a Spoiler Episode after each playthrough. This began with the first T.I.M.E Stories scenario, "Asylum," and has continued on from there. Click through below to access each episode, plus a brief mission log with our game stats. And as a final warning, if you have not yet played these scenarios, DO NOT PROCEED, as we discuss everything and it would likely render these scenarios unplayable for you in the future!

We hope you enjoy these episodes, and if you would like to join the conversation, please join us in the #TIMEstories channel on the Draft Mechanic Slack!

ALPHA: ASYLUM

Originally released Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Our first Spoiler Episode was partially unplanned. We didn't know what to expect going into T.I.M.E Stories, and Draft Mechanic as a podcast was very new. The experience was so impactful that we had to discuss. Thus, DM's Spoiler Episodes were born.

On this episode: Team Alpha (Jake, Danielle, Dan & Kyle)
