Christina from Greetings from Nowhere sent us this week’s game based on the 70s cartoon, The Great Grape Ape Game. Things we talk about this week include: Thanksgiving plans, Pie Party and we pull the winner for our Simon Says Macy Giveaway!
Christina from Greetings from Nowhere and her husband, Bob visit us this week and teach us how to play the card game, Battle of the Bands. We find out just HOW competitive the Hills are. Spoiler alert… A LOT!
Curtis is joining the guys from Flip The Table as a member of Team Bance for Extra Life, a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. If you’d like to support Curtis and Phoenix Children’s Hospital, you can donate here.
Big thanks to Christina and Bob for being on the show!
Lordy lordy, look who’s 40. Curtis is! And a lot of people want to wish him a Happy Birthday! Then we play a game called Reminiscing meant for — let’s just be honest — old people. Which we are.
Thanks to everyone who sent birthday greetings for Curtis!
Trading Spaces Game is based on the popular reality show from the 2000s about two sets of neighbors who redecorate a room in each others home. We try to spend our $1000 budget first by matching our opponent’s answers. We also talk about recently making healthy choices and our excitement for Pride48 in Vegas this September.
Ticket To Ride is a game we’ve been wanting to play for a long time even though it turns out to be a lot of not talking. Things we talk about during this episode include: the Ticket to Ride app, Christina from Greetings from Nowhere, Big Fatty, Pretty Woman, art galleries, spoken word events, Ryan in Canada, Portland, Christian from Pleased to Meet You, Frozen, Alias, The Good Wife, the Final Destination franchise and Founders Day on It’s All About M.E.
Christina from Greetings from Nowhere found this week’s game at a garage sale. Welcome Back, Kotter: The Up Your Nose with a Rubber Hose Game is based on a hit 70s sitcom about remedial students so it’s perfect for us. Other things we talk about include: Brooke Smith, the movie Series 7: The Contenders, reality shows, the schools we attended, Curtis’s undying love for BioShock Infinite, Hackycat, May Day, books Brian is sort of reading right now, and, of course, sitcoms of our youth.
Thank you SO MUCH Christina for sending us this game to play. You can find her podcast, Greetings from Nowhere at visitnowhere.com.
If you have a game you want us to play, let us know!
Listen to Brian on episode 480 of Foul Monkeys.
Some of our friends have Kickstarter campaigns for games. Michael Fox has Fox & Chicken and Bryan & Dan are doing a second printing of Faggles to Faggles. (They were all on the same episode last year!) Check them out!
ZombieGurl TJ from Greetings From Nowhere sent us this week’s game that’s a little bit like Clue, and a little bit like Mousetrap. 1313 Dead End Drive is a bluffing game where you should try to conceal your identity. Of course, we do a piss poor job of that.
Things we talk about this episode include: Peeps, The Comeback, It’s All About M.E., Phoenix Comicon, why Brian thinks Curtis is like a cat, screaming goats, a new iTunes review by Princess Honah and reaching a dubious milestone on Facebook.
Thank you ZombieGurl TJ for sending us this game! You are the best!
