Yall — i started listening to this because i dont play dnd and literally was only in it for the goofs but i have found so much more in this podcast. This is the equivalent of several bookcases in a library of narrative and character development. This is no small thing. I work night shift alone so...Read full review »

Great story telling. You can tell the the narrator and DM puts a lot of time into all of this. Thoroughly engaging. Tiny bit cringy with some of the “sup babe” relationship stuff and that’s really the only complaint. These guys are hilarious and wildly quick witted.

Consistently hilarious

Genuinely funny humour linked together with amazement story. Everything feels the perfect combination of scripted and natural. Thank you brothers!

This is the exact podcast I didn't even realize I needed in my life! I have loved DnD my entire life yet never played, so this is awesome!Read full review »

With so many fantastic actual play podcasts out there, I can’t recommend spending time on the aggressively mediocre newest arc, Graduation. Despite the McElroy’s consistent inability in all of the three main arcs to create villains with interesting or in any way compelling motivations beyond...Read full review »

Is it too funny? Is that legal?

The McElroys are hilarious and TAZ is evidence of their excellent storytelling abilites.

I got my mom to listen to the Dadlands episode and I think I’ll be able to get her to listen to Balance now! So good

No need to talk at lenght about what this is about...just start at episode 1 and enjoy, you will not regret it. This D and D podcast is a treasure!

:(
Not a fan of Justin’s character voice nor Travis’ character choices. That baby unicorn scene was much too. . . cringe isn’t the right word. Lame?? It was lame.

these guys are phenomenal improv actors and all around great people with big hearts. i love all of them so much
aquaholic442233 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/19
It’s funny, and uplifting, and warm, and real. I’ve laughed and cried more than is reasonable by any measure, and it’s 100% worth the time to listen from the very beginning. More than anything, Griffin is a master storyteller. He loves his story, you can tell; the latter third of the Balance...Read full review »

It doesn’t matter what game they’re in, it brings a hilarious but intricate game to life for those who are listening. I’m always excited to see what happens next, and am never disappointed. It’s definitely a unique experience!
RyPlays via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/19
These guys have gotten me through some tough times, and I can’t thank them enough. Definitely worth a listen.

Garfie_1979 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/02/19
Even at my lowest point, this podcast can lift my spirits and give me that little push to keep going. Thank you Mcelroys, your work means more to me than I can put in words. Thank you for the light in my life.

I’m dying laughing, but also, it’s giving me a refresher on DnD! ❤️
Gingisaurus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/19
such purehearted fun with lovely characters and with the message of hope

I love listening to this podcast!
DCalicia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/19
Love this cast more than 2/4 of my kids. The first and third “seasons” are amazing. The second lost my attention, but there has never been a better podcast than season 1, and so far season three is glorious.
Grool99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/19
When this family gathers around a mic hilarity inevitably ensues. I have literally bellowed out loud when one of Taako’s spells go awry, gasped as Magnus just flipping rushes in AGAIN, and face palmed when Merle fabricates spell slots he doesn’t even have. My housemates can always tell when I’m...Read full review »

I just don’t think I’ll ever get over Amnesty- it’s so much my jam it’s not even funny? Crypto’s, aliens, family, and other interesting themes?? In MY available podcasts? It’s more likely than you think! These boys bring so much to each and every episode. Can’t wait to see what Travis has...Read full review »

I am loving this D&D podcast, I always wanted to play but I grew up in the sticks and the field cats were never that interested. I am thoroughly enjoying being a ghost on their adventures and can not wait to see what happens in every episode. PS: I think Griffin has the patience of a saint.

I’ve been listening since the summer before I started college and let me tell you it’s one of my favorite things about college. I listen on my way to class, during lunch, and it even motivates me to work out, because I listen to it during my workouts too! It’s such a gem of a podcast with such a...Read full review »
20s and thriving via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/19
I’m sad to say that the Family has lost me as a listener. The new concept is not good. Bring Griffin back as DM, and we can talk. The lack of seriousness in terms of world-building and naming conventions is simply bad. Stop trying to create new merch and create good content (as you have been for...Read full review »

My gosh. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard since… well ever. And I cried. I cried like I do when my wizard pal casts fireball on my lv 1 rogue to get rid of me.

The adventure zone is one of those rare pieces of media that reminds you of the beauty of being alive and the beauty of the world around you as it’s lovable cast of characters and the family playing them explore what it means to lose and love and make connections. Absolutely changed my life and...Read full review »

3 brothers and their dad play RP games and make the world a little brighter. Great story telling and goofs. Recommend starting with “Balance”, where it all began.
badwolfacademy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/19
Great storytelling, I find myself loving all the settings and characters, and always looking forward to the next episode. Wish more people listened to this masterpiece! Kind regards from Mexico!
MineralAvian via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 11/22/19
This is the story of four idiots who play D and D so hard that they cry. You’ll cry to. Then you’ll be amazing.

I just finished listening to Balance for the 3rd time when Graduation started and it is amazing. Thank you good good bois again for all the entertainment!
Stark Supremist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/19
Some of the best story telling and some of the most fun I have ever had. Inspired me to try DMing and introduce my nine year old to D&D. Love these guys. And I’m not even through the first main arc yet!
Syntoran via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/19
Listened to the Balance arc like 3 times start to finish, and so far I ADORE Graduation! Good things are afoot and I can’t wait!!!

Can’t lie I straight up teared up the ending of season one or however you want to say it but I loved the d&d vibe and feel like that’s been lost I didn’t listen to all of the last season just didn’t grab me like before hope for something better next like I said love these guys and all there...Read full review »

Hearing a bunch of nerds playing games and laughing the behinds off has never been so fun! They can be a bit preachy at times but it’s overshadowed by some pretty amazing improv. So if you like D&D and you like the McElroys, press subscribe. (Also if you are familiar with the D&D rules,...Read full review »

I never really understood the power of great storytelling until I listened to the first arc of this podcast.

McElfan representative #4,784 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/19
TAZ inspired me to get into D&D myself again after many years, and I love the characters and the story. So much effort is put into it and it’s amazing how much fun a family can have playing a game together. Big supporter and I‘m excited for what’s to come!
