Tanked Up 137 – Obra Dinn and board games

We also chat a little Red Dead Redemption 2

This week Lucy is the only one who has played a video game so we delve into the realms of board games once again. Aadil kicks off the episode chatting about ‘Coup’ and ‘Codewords’. Lucy then gets into ‘Return of the Obra Dinn’ basically telling Ben and Aadil that they would love it. Talk turns to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and the revelation that none of us have played it which leads into Lucy’s initial impressions and general chat around Red Dead Redemption 2.

Lucy has another week off the beers as she went to an Amundsen tap take over the night before recording so recounts some of the beers she enjoyed. Ben and Aadil do drink whilst recording. Ben starts with a ‘Ransack the Universe’ IPA from Canadian based Collective Arts Brewing whilst Aadil drinks, from our Bristol friends Good Chemistry with Holy Roar Records, ‘Roar Power’ Pale Ale. Aadil sticks with the collabs for his second beer having the Fierce and left Handed Giant ‘Nervous Laughter’ Sour IPA. Ben ends with the ‘Marshmallow Stout’ from New Bristol Brewery.

Remember you can always join in with our random chats over on our Discord server at https://discord.gg/7AmJhn6


Ben is like a fine wine, he spends far to much time in cellars. He deliberately developed a stutter and a slur and walks with a limp to conceal his raging alcohol problem. Once beat up a fish for looking at him funny. Ben hosts the Tanked up podcast, but we are pretty sure he isn't aware of that.
