Episode 65 – A New Campaign 2018

It’s the start of a glorious new year and the lads discuss what they’ve got for Christmas, how to start a new campaign, what new and exciting games they may be setting up for 2018 and other goodness. Do you remember Transhuman Space? That and more could be in the offing this year…

Give sacrifice to the Patreon fund, and we’ll keep attending great events, and recording more content for you, dear listeners. Both of you. At time of writing we’re at a sufficient level to get the boys writing a producing a fanzine – so in 2018 our loyal Patrons have even more to look forward to.

Check out their Facebook page. Find them on the Twitters: @the_smart_party or email the guys.
