I went to game night early and helped set up the tables. I could hear my Game Master buddy Nate PERFECTLY. We set up the 2nd table too close to us (about 1 foot) and our buddies at the 2nd table were LOUD! They were having fun, but Nate's voice is soft spoken. Thank goodness I had my Parabolic Microphone with me. I could HEAR HIM over the loud barbarians next to us. SUCCESS !!!!
