The Die Cast: Fantastic Fest Tabletop Marathon

Hello, all. Your Chairman here.

Fantastic Fest is a negative experience for anyone who hates great movies, good company, delicious food, copious amounts of alcohol, amateur boxing, karaoke and other things that are amazing.

In between all of the awesome, we still found time to carve out some precious tabletop gaming time! As a matter of fact, OneOfUs.Net hosted a nearly three-hour board game marathon during the festival.

Join the Us and special guest Max Isaacson, director of Fantastic Fest short film Whispers, as we sit down to discuss the best of the fest while engaging in some of the best casual games out there right now.

Here’s what we played…


Brian, Max, and myself started with a game of Zombie Dice (0:55 )

We followed that up with a zen-full game of Tsuro (37:35)

Then entered the fray Christopher Lawrence Cox for a second round of ZD (77:05)

We were then joined by Luke Mullen and played a rousing, and underhanded game of Resistance (84:31)

Closing things out, Max, Brian and I laugh in spite of the pain we inflict upon our respective families in the blackly comedic card game Gloom (112:16)
