    Maps vs Theater of the Mind (Tome 293)

    In this episode Jeff and Tracy sit down with guests Ishmael Alvarez, Mike Shea, and Sam Dillon to discuss map use in your D&D games. The use of maps and minis necessarily differs from so-called theater of the mind play, and this group discusses the ins and outs of both methods.
