RPG Research's weekly Show "New Games Unboxing and Evaluations" is not like other shows.

RPG Research weekly live-broadcast of "Games Unboxing and Actual Play Evaluations".

Sundays 6-9 pm PST on

This is not your everyday unboxing show. First of all, the show is run by "The Grandfather of Therapeutic Gaming", Recreational Therapists, and other professionals from education, healthcare, and other professional fields.

This show is also distinctive because these game evaluations are assessed for:

  1. "Barriers to entry" in design and availability for brand-new "newbie" potential players
  2. Accessibility for people with a range of physical or cognitive disabilities or neurodistinctions.
  3. Accessibility for low-income population barriers and options
  4. Application of the games in community centers
  5. Use in educational settings
  6. Potential therapeutic considerations
  7. At-risk population considerations
  8. and much more!

Examples of games recently unboxed and/or evaluated recently on this show:

  1. Alice is Missing
  2. Beadles and Grim Fey special collection
  3. The Heroes Journal
  4. InspireIsles
  5. The Lazy DM's Companion
  6. Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master
  7. Monte Cook "Best Game Ever" and GM Notebook
