Episode 30 – Dread-ful open mic

Steven participated in his first open mic ever, getting up in the middle of monologues, songs, and standup performances to run a short storytelling experience based on an indie RPG called Dread. While traditional tabletop roleplaying games have you roll dice to overcome challenges, players in Dread pull blocks from a Jenga tower. Listen in to hear how it went!
