Haircuts. Boxing. Sword and sorcery and dungeon crawls, including a revolutionary occurrence in our 5th Edition ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ campaign and a review of the new ‘Temple of Elemental Evil’ board game from Wizards of the Coast and WizKids.

This week on the podcast, we talk about the perennial geek favorite: the dungeon crawl. Why does the lure of loot always get us back down into those dark, dank catacombs? What makes the perfect dungeon crawl experience, and why do so many games fall just short of what we’re hoping for?
