The Hard Move

A Games and Hobbies podcast featuring Matthew Gravelyn
Good podcast? Give it some love!
The Hard Move is a Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) RPG discussion podcast. Each episode a guest and I focus on a single move, diving into how the move works mechanically, how players can use it narratively to drive the fiction, and how GMs can react to the move. Join me every Wednesday as I welcome a new guest to name their move and play to find out what happens.
