In Games in Schools and Libraries episode 90 Donald  Dennis and Stephanie Frey talk about their experiences taking gaming on the road. Over the course of SCARAB 2018, in Columbia SC, Stephanie ran more than 120 people through escape rooms and Donald ran a wide variety of RPGs. The pair also competed in the RPG Pharaoh's Challenge, taking first and second place for Game Mastering excellence.

As you can tell it was a long weekend, and they really hadn't recovered when they recorded this episode. 

You should be able to hear reviews of the Georgetown County Library Escape Rooms on the Swarmcast over the next few weeks. SwarmCastPodcast.com
