The Marvel Super Heroes RPG

Join us on the Vintage RPG Patreon for more roleplaying fun and surprises!

Happy new year!

For starters this episode, we check out the seance-themed board game Mysterium. It is sort of like Clue meets Dixit, but spooky.

The main event is TSR’s Marvel Super Heroes RPG. We revel in some 80s-era nostalgia, discuss the weirdness of the game and somehow wind up on the 1987 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Marvel float. Seriously, go watch that video.

We also talk about Blades in the Dark, a dark fantasy heist RPG that Stu is preparing to run online for members of the Unwinnable staff.

Update: We played the Marvel Super Heroes RPG after recording this episode and will have updated impressions in the near future for Patrons only!
