Due to technical difficulties, we had to do a last minute switcheroo with this week’s game and play the ridiculous and ridiculously cute War-like card game, Kittenwar. Aside from all the feline chatter, we also talk about Brian’s recent trip to Oklahoma and Mike’s Pride weekend.
Before we play this week’s game, we address a listener’s voicemail who takes umbrage with Brian’s public disdain of Glee and wonders if he doth protest too much. Then we learn the popular Ecuadorian fast-paced, think-on-your-feet game, Cuarenta.
Tonight we play a card game based on and created by the musical pantomime group Steam Powered Giraffe. We talk to one of the members, David Bennett to find out more about this group of unique & talented performers. We also play their new single Honeybee.

Ro! Cham! Beau! Tonight, we play the ancient hand gesture game and then a card game based on it, Rock Paper Scissors.
Mille Borne is French for a thousand milestones, however the way the Game Night Guys play, it should stand for meltdown. Join us while we learn this car racing card game that leaves us both with a lot of road rage.
Merci beaucoup pour votre attention!
Tonight we learn the quintessential two-player card game, Gin Rummy. Learn all about sets and runs and melds. Oh my!

Thanks for listening!
War. What is it good for? Absolutely something… say it again y’all.
This week, Mike teaches Brian how to play a easy, fast-paced game with a standard deck of cards. It’s a good game for two people and simple enough that it’s great for kids. Simple enough for kids = simple enough for the Game Night Guys.
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.
It’s your move!
