Board Game

Trivial Pursuit TV Edition

Trivial Pursuit TV Edition

This week’s thrift store game tests our television knowledge from over 20 years ago. Tonight, we play Trivial Pursuit TV Edition and reminisce of television shows of yore. Find out why Brian keeps talking about flavors of pie and what Curtis’s family thought he was doing in the bathroom when he was in high school.

Othello

Othello

The box says “A minute to learn… a lifetime to master.” It’s called Othello but it has nothing to do with the Shakespeare tragedy. Or does it?

Other things we discuss include Dyson vacuums, diverticulitus, desecrating currency, Downton Abbey, and other delightful things.

You can play Othello courtesy of Amy in New Zealand’s husband at hewgill.com/othello.

Thanks to TVD for the recent iTunes review.

Battlestar Galactica The Board Game

Battlestar Galactica The Board Game

We immerse ourselves into the highly-praised science fiction television show when we play Battlestar Galactica The Board Game. Will the Cylons defeat us? Eh… most likely. We also talk about our new favorite app, Draw Something; available on both iOS and Android.

Thanks to Jeffrey Ricker for sending us the game to try out. Check out his book Detours and his blog. He’s awesome. So say we all.

And finally, we play the entries from our theme song lyrics contest. Big thanks to Scott, Jon, Rod and Mike for submitting entries. They were all terrific and it was very difficult picking winners.

The Six Million Dollar Man Game

The Six Million Dollar Man Game

Gentlemen, we can record. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic podcast. This week we play a vintage board game based on the television show The Six Million Dollar Man.

Our table talk includes the Superbowl, Puppy Bowl, Madonna, a cat with bionic legs and Drag Race contestant Sharon Needles.

A Christmas Story The Board Game

A Christmas Story The Board Game

It’s the holiday season, so what better time to play the game based on the popular Christmas comedy: A Christmas Story The Board Game. And who better to play it with than movie critics Alonso Duralde and Dave White of the Linoleum Knife podcast.

We of course talk a lot about movies, but also Brian’s mysterious magazine subscription. Plus we get a surprise visitor.

You can subscribe to Dave & Alonso’s podcast at linoleumknife.libsyn.com or through iTunes. You can also hit them up on Facebook and follow them on Twitter: @linoleumcast.

Also be sure to check out Alonso’s book Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas available on Amazon.com. It makes a great stocking stuffer.

Thanks to Dave & Alonso for joining us. We had a ton of fun and no one shot their eye out.
