The Adventure Zone: Ep. 32. The Crystal Kingdom - Chapter Four
January 29, 2016 6:23 AM - Subscribe

We may have finally found a challenge that our heroes cannot overcome: Math-based trivia. Can our heroes stump their animatronic captor before turning extra crispy? Can they stave off a crystalline death for one more episode? Merle seeks divine intervention. Magnus makes an otherworldly find. Taako's good out here.

I was also wrestling with the little robot's "stump the robot" quiz. When Justin finally got it, and Travis said "Boom goes the dynamite," it was unexpectedly satisfying.

Yeah I was thinking along the lines of asking "how do you know you know all knowledge?" but Taako's answer was better. The mocking of Clint's D&D skills was pretty delightful and it managed to avoid feeling too mean spirited to me. Hopefully Clint agrees. I liked the fact that now Magnus' is actively looking for opportunities to take his opponent's arms and the measuring gag was good.

Oh and the nit picker dialogue was fantastic.

Not for nothing, but I've been listening to the Hodge Podge theme on repeat for the last few days. (HE DOES IT ALL ON A ROCK BAND KEYBOARD)

"Does the set of all sets that don't contain themselves contain itself?"
The voidfish trick was a good in-universe answer though. Also I love that they possibly almost did it with "how many fingers" but he got it right.

I checked out the AZ Reddit after Griffin's quip, and there are some really intriguing theories on who or what is singing the "crystal kingdom" songs.
