Quest for the Throne - King's Quest II - Session 2

Last time on Quest for the Throne, we recovered the Water and Air gems in King's Quest II, leaving only the final gem to recover...and the nature of the church was discovered to be as creepy as it looked from the outside.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we seek the final stone that will unlock the door leading to King Graham's destiny!

Quest for the Throne - King's Quest II - Session 1.5

Last time on Quest for the Throne, we completed King's Quest: Quest for the Crown in the first two hours of the show, and began King's Quest II: Romancing the Stones in the remaining time. So tonight, we will continue!

King Graham, with his head in the clouds, consults his magic mirror, and falls immediately in love with the woman he sees there imprisoned in a tower. With newfound drive, he sets out for the land of Kolyma to rescue the fair damsel, certain his quest will only take him a few days.

After arriving in Kolyma, we pretty much wandered around aimlessly, finding the Door of Destiny, but not much else that yet seems entirely of consequence. Of course, this is an adventure game — everything is important and useful, somehow.

Join us for our continued journey through this strange land tonight at 9pm ET!

Quest for the Throne - King's Quest - Session 1

Announcing tonight, a new sub-series on Throne of Games!

The theme is simple: does it have "Quest" in the title? We'll play it!

The inspiration for this theme? GOG had a sale recently, and I got Space Quest 1-3 and Police Quest 1-4. That's a lot of quests. However, we will not be starting with any of those tonight! Instead, we shall begin playing...

King's Quest: Quest for the Crown, the seminal game in this classic adventure series by Roberta Williams. The kingdom of Daventry is in a dire state: the king is old and without an heir, and the precious royal treasures have been stolen. Tasked with recovering the items, Sir Graham can prove his worth if he succeeds, and his reward will be to inherit the throne.

Will he succeed and return prosperity to the kingdom? Or will Daventry fall further into ruin? Join Daniel, Brendan, Mabry and myself tonight at 9pm ET and find out!
