We discuss how hexcrawls can be compelling and how they can fail, exemplified in Tomb of Annihilation and Hot Springs Island.
Correction: Jacob contacted us to clarify that, while he did do all the layout himself, the art was done by Gabriel Hernandez, Eric Quigley, Cecil Howe, Billy Longino, Jason Thompson, Juan Ochoa, and Ron Guyett. And two others helped with the writing: Donnie Garcia and Evan Peterson.
