Hurry Up!

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!

We also talk about being interviewed on The Little Metal Dog Show and contributing to Unload with Madge and Dave, our current fanboy crush.

Big thanks to Maureen with RandomLine for sending us this game to review. Maureen rocks!
