This week, Mike teaches Brian how to play a favorite game from his childhood, Mancala. After we drew numbers to see who would go first, Mike explains what drew him to choose this game. We also discuss some recent drama and of course, kids and their inefficient tiny hands.
This week we play one of the most popular board games worldwide, Monopoly. Plus, we discuss this cultural phenomenon with Kevin Tostado, the producer and director of the new documentary, Under the Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story. Kevin shares some history about the game as well as some strategy. Check out the trailer.
We make no apologies for this episode as we explore the hallmark of family-friendly games, Sorry. Take one step forward and four steps back. While the safety zone will protect you from being sent back to the start, it may not protect you from viruses.
We learn another valuable lesson about podcasting during our second episode: it’s much easier walking and chewing gum at the same time than it is talking and playing the board/card game, Sequence, where one-eyed Jacks are wild and the King of Hearts looks a wee bit Irish.
