Turn Someone On

Adam West and I get hot and heavy as we discuss the move Turn Someone On from the game Monsterhearts 2. This move is at the core of Monsterhearts gameplay and mechanically powers Strings, the economy of relationships used to power other moves in the game. We also talk about how this move narratively opens up limitless doors to explore teenage sexuality and identity as well as tips for how GMs can support such deep character exploration.
