You're trapped in an old house and the only way out is to either fight or trick a goblin guarding the front door. Do you imagine yourself rolling a D20 or do you place your hands on a keyboard and mouse in this scenario? Which option creates a fuller sense of immersion? This week, Matt hosts his first episode as he's joined by Josh, JP, Rachel, Kenneth, and special guest tabletop gaming blogger Tom as BNQ tackles the differences between tabletop and video gaming. Find out why you should never create a rabbit as fodder for a D&D party, how Josh scared himself silly in Fallout 4, and what happens when you claim to roll an 81 on a wisdom check.
