It's not a joke to say TAZ changed my life. The storytelling is sublime, the characters dynamic, hilarious, and unforgettable. I've laughed til I cried, cried til I laughed, and badgered my friends and family until they listened. Don't be discouraged at the change-up in storytelling at all: the new arc is shaping up to be fabulous.

You're going to be amazing

TAZ: Balance won my heart, and I honestly feel like I've been changed for the better because of it. Incredibly excited to see where Commitment goes, even though I know it won't be as long and as deep as Balance was, I know that I'll love it all the same. No matter where this podcast goes, I know it'll be amazing. Thank you, boys.

This is my all time favorite podcast. It is incredibly sincere yet doesn't take itself too seriously. The dynamic among the brothers and their dad is perfect for a DND group. They are relatable and clearly love their fans. I've listened to it twice all the way through and look forward to every episode.

The Balance Arc is pure gold. Thank y'all for bringing such a wonderful story to life and I am absolutely loving the beginning of the Commitment Arc!! You guys have inspired me to start creating my first cosplay (Taako Taaco is my spirit animal) and I am loosing my mind (in the best way possible) in all the details I am incorporating. You guys are the best. Thank you thank you thank you <3

Terrible!!! The old one was so great and I miss it. What in the heck were they thinking? Is it a Marvel super hero podcast now? The show is great though.

I heard about this via the podcast “Trends Like These”. You gotta understand that I’ve been an avid podcast listener since 2006 and I have favorites that I never miss. Well, enter “The Adventure Zone”. I forsook all my other podcasts to binge this one straight through. As a D&D/ role player from the 80s, I was so hooked to be taken back to the zone. I love hearing the dice hit the table. I gotta say that Griffin is an amazing writer. I would have loved to have had him as my DM. He really makes the story flow and the way it all ties back in is masterful. Don’t get me wrong, the rest of the family are just as talented in their roles, as well. Having Clint play along really adds since he can tell jokes that some of us older cats can relate to. All around 5+ stars. I don’t want it to end.

This is easily one of the best podcasts in existence. This is the ONLY poscast that my wife and I have decided to listen to together. It is consistently hilarious, kind, and captivating. Start from episode 1.5, and enjoy the ride.

This podcast was suggested to me by a friend in my D&D group, and I am hooked. This show is hilarious, and pokes fun at many of the more ridiculous elements of the game.*Update*I finsihed the Balance Arc finally. This show is truly hilarious at times, but has a really big heart in the center of the shenanigans. Clint, Travis, Justin, and Griffin have weaved a rich tale with this first arc. It tickles the funny bone and tugs at the heartstrings. The interplay between the characters and DM is truly great podcasting, and I can't wait to see what else is in store for this show.

The Adventure Zone's "Balance Arc" I think is one of the best contained stories in podcasting out there. A whole bunch of laughs, great characters, and compelling world building, it really stands out. The new arc, which just began, is a wonderful break from D&D and I look forward to what is coming next for this show. You're going to be amazing!

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is my absolute favorite. I’ve never played D&D, but I am a huge nerd and I fell in love immediately. The podcast is hilarious and also touching. Beyond that, the plot is just good fantasy (with great sci-fi touches). I couldn’t love this podcast more.

The McElroys do a fantastic job making a simple podcast centered around D&D so interesting! This series is filled with hilarious comebacks, moments where you want to hit a character in the face, intense character development, and may bring a few tears to your eyes. I recommend this podcast to anyone, especially those who are under high stress and just want to relax and have some laughs for a few hours.

Took a bad turn.

So Much More than D&D

by JackieSparrow-chan on Oct 18, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I used to think that Acquisitions Inc. was the best ongoing dungeons and dragons game you could listen to. Then my friend told me about The Adventure Zone. HO. LY. WOW. Am I glad they did! What this family has crafted together is so amazing that I’m getting choked up just thinking about it!!! They completely jump the classic D&D world limitations early on for much cooler concepts, then evolve into an episodic “mystery of the month” format with a riveting and suspenseful overarching storyline, filled with charming characters, enchanting locations, and mind-blowing plot twists! You can hear as everyone goes from goofing off, making references and joking around with each other, to fully fleshed out concepts and characters whose awesomeness causes me to emit high frequencies, still making references and joking around with each other! Even when the storyline becomes a resplendent, polished jewel, they keep that feeling of “and these are people who know each other well playing around with concepts”, and I think both parts together are what makes this podcast such a joy to listen to. Best of all, you really connect with and feel for all the characters in the podcast. ALL OF THEM! Even the one-off minor characters, of which there are few because if there’s another thing this story does well it’s tying everything together! At one point they even ditch the D&D mechanic altogether, which is fantastic because they’re no longer bogged by combat, even though some of the battles are some of the most amazing, memorable moments in the series. Maybe it’s because most of the battles are bosses or mini-bosses with significance and there isn’t much level grinding thanks to ~fantasy Costco~, etc.? Probably. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you’re listening for the first time, start from the beginning and enjoy the cruise until the ramp-up around “Crystal Kingdom” or “The Eleventh Hour”. Then hold on to your hats. Because I promise you are in for an earth-shattering ride.

The Brothers McElroy and their dear ol' dad, radio host Clint McElroy, take on whatever their imagination can muster (and if you know the MBMBAM crew you know how active their imaginations are). The comedy trio has years of improve together, and Clint is... a character in and of himself. Together they weave a tale that will bring awe, inspiration and a whole lot of laughter. They have proven themselves creative and witty, and now they allow themselves the ability weave their non-sequiter thoughts into a dynamic story.

My girlfriend and I both finished thru-hiking the PCT this past summer and picked up TAZ as something to do to pass the time after lunch to help stave off post-lunch sleepiness. Me being a huge fantasy and RPG fan and my girlfriend having no knowledge whatsoever of the former, both thoroughly enjoyed the adventure we could undertake with Magnus, Merle, and Taako as we were having an adventure of our own. It even got her interested in trying to play some 5th edition DnD! I was pretty stoked about that and with listening she has a decent understanding of game mechanics to go off of. I am sad to be finishing up the adventure of Magnus, Merle, and Taako but it makes me smile still. Thanks McElroys! Now I am all nostalgic again. I look forward to the new adventures you guys out out.

Through years of listenin, these sweet boys have encouraged me to write my own campaign and I am now playing it with four of my coworkers. We like story over combat so the McElroy Method of Fifth Edition was he way to go. They think I’m the smartest DM cookie in the box but now you all know that my secret is stealing from the best: the McElboys.

So I recently started playing 5e and it’s super addicting. I find myself needing a fix when I am not playing. This is an awesome substitute. The comedy and lack of a rule-miser helps my drives and flights go by. I must say Clint/Merle really stands out. I wish my paladin could cast as many spells as he can. Also Ep.50 and the Lease-gate of 2016 was hilarious. Keep weaving a fantastic and unique universe. Roll out.

WHATEVER YOU DO PLEASE START THIS PODCAST AT THE BEGINNING. Starting from episode one of the Balance campaign I have been magically whisked away by Griffin and his family each night when I work, and let me tell you, never in my life have I been so compelled or emotionally enveloped by a story, cast, and the people playing them. Listened to about three a night for a few weeks straight and just blew through a whole three years of gut busting, tear wrenching, DnD of my life. One of the greatest creative endeavors I have come across in my life, highly highly recommended, super excited for these experimental arcs! 100% worth a listen and again please start from the beginning, your heart will thank you!!

As a big fan of D&D, I was recommended this podcast by a friend. I knew nothing about the McElroys going in, but I have to say this is one of the funniest things I’ve ever listened to, even if they do tend to play pretty fast and loose with the rules.
