Be sure to check out next week’s team coverage of the game based on Murder, She Wrote with the guys from Flip The Table.
Tonight, we play Pig Mania, also known as Pass The Pigs. This means we also talk about bacon. Natch.
We give a few shout outs for people who have gotten in touch with us recently and written iTunes reviews. Check out Jonathan’s recommendation of Game Night Guys on the gaming website, Troll in the Corner.
Also, We are now on Stitcher!
Happy New Year! We ring in the new year with a game that is very similar to Farkle. It’s called Don’t You Forget It and the goal is not to roll the words For, Get and It. Our table talk includes our respective New Year’s Eves, the shocking reveal that Curtis claims to have never heard Berlin’s No More Words and Brian still loves making the 24 countdown beep.
Plus, we answer a question from Terminally Single Tim about what games make a great game night. Some of our favorite game night games include:
If you’d like to help our podcasting friends Dave & Alonso from Linoleum Knife with the costs not covered by insurance from a recent arson attempt at their home, you can donate a few bucks at daveandalonsofirecosts.chipin.com.
It’s trivia night here on Game Night Guys. Tonight we play a game called Codigo Cube. It’s a QR coded die that uses an app on a smartphone to give you trivia questions and keep score. Nifty, right?
Big thanks to Todd at Four Clowns Game and Toy Company in Scottsdale, Arizona for sending us this game to play. Learn more about Codigo Cube at codigocube.com.
Game designer Brian Kowalski gives us a rundown of his dice throwing game Cookie Fu. This, of course, leads Mike and Brian into a discussion about cookies. C is for cookie and that’s good enough for the Game Night Guys.
After we played, we had dinner at China Chili. It was t-t-t-tasty tasty.
Learn more about Cookie Fu at cookiefu.com.
This week we play one our of favorite games, Yahtzee. We also gab a lot. Topics discussed include: the trouble with over-the-counter medication, 80s sitcoms, Mike’s book obsession, How Much Do We Love… LIVE!, drinking games, Brian’s workplace fun days, listener game nights on our Facebook page, and reality television including RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
We want to hear about your game nights. Post photos to our Facebook page!\
The Game Night Guys review a new fast-paced dice game called Hurry Up! this week. We enjoyed playing this game so much that we’ve decided to give one away to a lucky listener. It’s our first contest and a shameless plug for reviews. Hizzah!
Big thanks to Maureen with RandomLine for sending us this game to review. Maureen rocks!
Tonight we learn the risk-taking dice game: Farkle. It is a game of strategy and luck known by many different names with numerous variations. We also discuss the difference between a farkle, a farkle and a farkle. Here’s a hint: One shines, one stinks and one is naughty.
As always, we farkling appreciate you listening. Happy farkles to you.
