Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out! The third matchup of the season brings in a new crop of players to test their knowledge of pop culture past, present, and future! Ok, we’re not asking about any unreleased properties, but we ARE getting nerdy with Adal, Keegan, and Lucy as we quiz on pop culture representations of Dungeons & Dragons, as well as delving into the nooks and crannies of the multitude of weird ways that Fortnite has pulled in other movies and TV.

Episode Notes

The Super 3D Noah’s Ark Scorebreak. Super 3D Noah’s Ark: Sure, grandma, this is a first person shooter for the SNES. [7/10 Never played it, but I love the idea of knock-off Christian bookstore only videogames.]
The Portishead scorebreak: Portishead. Turns out the folks from To Kill a Dead Man have a band, too! [4/10 You all are getting obscure, even for me. But “Portishead” is fun to say.]
