‘MMPR: Pink’ might be your new obsession

I've somehow managed to completely ignore Boom's on-going Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers series due to a variety of factors. That's a weird mentality if you listened to the podcast or follow me on Twitter, because it's pretty obvious I'm a Power Rangers fanboy from back in the day. I've always had a weird relationship with the property, as it just wasn't considered "cool" when I was a kid for a very long time.

At The Table: Apocalypse World

Role Playing. You either do or do not, there is no middle ground.  I’m not going to try and beat you over the head on why you should game at an open table or why you should find a bunch of strangers and kill things together – in a dramatic fictional kind of way. No, I would never try and …
