Video Review: Tales from the Loop

We review the new(ish) tabletop RPG Tales from the Loop that has many people excited. Tales from the Loop seems to have hit a sweet spot with its combination of ’80s nostalgia, interesting game mechanics, and a setting both fantastic and familiar (well, if you’re from Sweden or Neveda).

Do we think it should find its way to your gaming table? Does our love affair with Modiphius continue? Is there a Swedish word for “Goonies”? Find out in our video review as we discuss “roleplaying in the ’80s that never was”.

Episode 201: Tales from the Loop and Stranger Things

Here we are
Hanging onto strains of new wave cues
Ape the tropes that we break down
It’s not real if you didn’t live it

They’ve finally made a show for you.

Eighties enough for you
Eighties enough for me
Fauxtalgia
Fauxtalgia for me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
