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!

There are a lot of new game ideas on Kickstarter. This week we talk about two of them. First, we chat with our pal Michael Fox from The Little Metal Dog Show about a game he’s developing called Ace Of Spies. Learn more about this fantastic looking card game and how you can support it on Kickstarter. You can also follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
Then we play a game from a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign. It’s called Faggles To Faggles. We learn about it from the guys who created it Bryan & Dan. Then we play this outrageous party game with them.
Brian has another rant about his office’s snack days. We also talk about the fanboydom of My Little Pony, known as Bronies.
And we manage to insult deaf people. Yet again. Our apologizes in advance.
To contact Bryan & Dan about possible reprints of Faggles To Faggles, you can email them at heygirlhey@fagglestofaggles. You can also follow the Faggles on Facebook and Twitter.
Back in October, we interviewed Kevin Tostado, the producer and director of Under the Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story. Since then, this documentary has been screened at various film festivals and won awards.
Kevin is raising money to bring his film to more theaters. He has started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a website where films, art, music, or other creative projects routinely get backers to provide funding. However, projects are on an all-or-nothing basis; if the goal is not met, no money changes hands. With crowdfunding, people can contribute as little as $1 and still help get closer to the goal.
Watch the video and if you can kick in a few bucks, that would be great. I know Kevin would greatly appreciate it. You can also share it with your friends & family via email, The Facebooks & the Twitter Machine to help spread the word.
