Encounter Party! immediately became my top priority podcast, as I was always waiting for the new episode to come out - pausing anything I may have been in the middle of when it released. It seems each live play podcast has a different specialty, and this one is all about the story. Organized into episodes that aren't too long, or filled with too much randomness, DM Brian and his amazing cast of players build a world and stories that truly capture the listeners' imagination. Even in looking back at episode descriptions I can picture some of the events in my mind and how these moments made me feel. From tragic ends to beloved characters to beautiful descriptions of fungi, having a cast made up of professional performers brings the quality of the storytelling and play up to another level. Somehow, the interstitial short campaigns between seasons (which have a bit more lighthearted feel to them) were even more fun than the main seasons, creating some of my favorite moments. This podcast is truly gripping, hilarious, and completely changed the way I play D&D. I can not recommend it highly enough.
Completely addicted. Brings me back to my D&D playing days!
Absolutely tremendous. Storytelling and narrative are great with some terrific voice actors driving the whole podcast.
The best produced RPG/D&D podcast around. Great world descriptions and story as well as character development. Set in the world of Ravnica (Magic the Gathering) this tabletop RPG podcast has the best sound quality, FX, and editing. No wasted time, pure story.
What an amazing nostalgic flashback. If you've ever played Magic the Gathering, than this is a must listen. If you hadn't played MtG but you do enjoy actual play rpg's, than this is still...a MUST LISTEN. So what sets EP apart? Well, besides the amazing sound design, voice acting, and rich story that will leave you hungry for me; the biggest thing is the pacing. Every episode is an sprint towards adventure--no clunkers.
Encounter Party!Thank you so much! We're really stoked to have you in the party
Whew boy. Finding and actual play podcast that is 1. Easy to listen to, 2. Not a chore to binge, either to catch up or just to listen through again for things you might have missed the first time through, and 3. Has an amazing DM and players that are totally committed to what the shows goals are as a whole. Well, look no farther than Encounter Party. I have listened to quite a few DnD podcasts. Some are great! Some are good, but just not for me. Encounter Party in on the *very* short list of DnD shows that I listen to religiously. It grabbed me the first time that I listened to it and I am nearly done listening to the first 2 season all the way through again. It is so easy to listen to. And one of the shows I look forward to showing up in my feed. I could go on, but I think I will leave it at this. If you are looking for an Actual Play, DnD podcast, I normally recommend 3. Encounter Party is *easily* in that group that I recommend for those looking for DnD podcasts.
Encounter Party!Corey, we're so glad to have you in the Party, and thank you for helping us get our show to a wider audience!
I love everything about this! It's a great DnD story but it's not ever bogged down. I can listen to each episode in a morning before work. Also all the actors are great at both voicing and playing there characters. It's a delight to listen to. Finally the story is great! Judkins has come up with a cool story and I adore the location and theme of Ravnica. As a magic the gathering fan and a DnD fan this checks all the boxes!
Encounter Party!We love everything about this review! Thank you for your words :) Very happy to have you as a #PartyPerson
This show is absolutely stunning. Love seeing how the characters grow and challenge these situations they find themselves in while trying to save the world. Shout to Sylorin and Parax for being my fave buddies who hate each other!
Encounter Party!They really do :P But they're working on it. So glad to have you in our Party, fellow Party Person!
So much fun! A must-listen for any DnD fan!
Encounter Party!Thank you! It's fun for us as well

I love listening to this Podcast! I don’t play D&D myself but it definitely makes me want to!
Encounter Party!You should! Never a better time to get started :)
My coworkers got me into this podcast a while back and I love it.
Encounter Party!We're so glad to have you in the party! Your co-worker has good taste
This is THE podcast that gets me out of bed (or at least gets me to sit up and turn off snooze) on a weekly basis. Top notch voice acting, excellent score and editing, and the story has me going back and relistening to previous seasons before each new season drops.
Encounter Party!Thank you for being a #PartyPerson! We're so glad you're here and love hearing what you discover on your re-listening adventures!
This podcast is really well done and engaging. Very approachable even if you're not familiar with the rules of Dungeons and Dragons. It's inspired me to play my first campaign with my husband!
Encounter Party!Oh yay! Glad to inspire the D&D lyfe :)
I love DND, and this is always a fun and engaging listen!
Encounter Party!Engaging is one of our favorite adjectives anyone can say about us.
An amazing set of professional individuals from different careers use their improv skills to bring on an original story through a live play of dungeons and dragons. You get everything: comedy, action, bromance, horror, deception, etc. Except there is no professional wrestler which they substitute with a Mob Boss who has a sidekick who reminds you to not skip leg day. In a world where everything can be taken from and give nothing back, these folks give you that something back. Just ask for the Special Special.
Encounter Party!Vinny, you flatter! Thank you for being a #PartyPerson, we're so excited to have you on this journey
Magic: the Gathering, D&D, and an amazing cast of actors who know their shit. What more do you need? Nothing. The answer is nothing. Go listen.
Encounter Party!Thank you for the love! We’re excited to have you in the party :)
Its storytelling abilities are incredible, and it has drawn me into a world to which I've never given much thought. Since starting to listen, I dove into Dungeons and Dragons and have started playing myself! 10/10 would recommend to any and all.
Encounter Party!Thank you, Kevin! Hope you’re enjoying your own campaigns :)
Listen up Dungeon delvers! Do you like action? Adventure? Drama? Comedy? Superb writing? Maniacal laughter? Do you see where I'm going with this yet? Binge this podcast for all of the above and much, much more!
Encounter Party!Why thank you :) we’re very excited to keep bringing you new content!
