A podcast featuring word games, trivia, classic board games, and even a few reimagined classic game shows from years gone by. We rotate through several different games, with different hosts, from episode to episode. What they all have in common is chat, humor, and fun.

Take a Bow

Parsely (Action Castle)

You stand among the ruins of the once-glorious Action Castle (castle castle castle). All that’s left is this courtyard, a lonely tower, and a few crumbling walls. A rickety wooden stairway leads up to the tower. A dark stairwell descends to the dungeon. Exits are: UP, DOWN, and WEST.

Parsely (Action Castle) Tony Sindelar with Dan Moren, Jason Snell, Aleen Simms, Kathy Campbell, Steve Lutz and Monty Ashley

A Penguin Knows to Respect a Gun

Game Night

Time for another Fiasco! This time our collaborative storytelling game goes to a research station in Antarctica, where there are penguins and broken relationships and illegal medications, as you might expect.

Tony Sindelar with Erika Ensign, Brian Hamilton, Dan Moren and Kathy Campbell

Inconceivable!: The Whole Hasperat

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

For this episode, recorded live at the World Science Fiction Convention in San Jose, CA, it’s a North American face-off, as Team USA takes on Team Canada. The panelists must identify fictional foods, figure out what character a group of actors have in common, and play a little game of musical mash-ups. Helene Wecker, Adam Rakunas, and Navah Wolfe represent the U.S. while Warren Frey, Erika Ensign, and Steven Schapansky fly the Canadian flag.

I’m Very Epicurious

Low Definition

It’s time once again for Low Definition, a game show featuring a panel of guests trying to guess the definitions of dumb words. In this episode we borrow a book from a Little Free Library, go to see an American movie in Italy, and try to figure out nerds.

Steve Lutz with Brian Hamilton, Chip Sudderth, Kathy Campbell, Tiffany Arment, Monty Ashley and Adal Rifai


91

A Squashed Bee Gee

Game Night

Cruel Brit Antony Johnston uses nostalgia-filled trivia meant for nostalgic UK players to confuse a collection of non-nostalgic North Americans.

Inconceivable!: Random Tolkien Table

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

It’s a nail biter this time around, as our panelists try to identify movies of the NATO alphabet, attempt to determine which items come next in mysterious sequences, and decipher mashups of movies and…stores? Shannon Sudderth, Justin Michael, and Kathy Campbell tee off against rivals Antony Johnston, Aleen Simms, and Steve Lutz.

I’ve Studied the Bible

Game Night

Inside a clerk’s office in a hotel in the old west town of Boomtown comes a story so dramatic and confusing that it must have been made up on the spot. Join host Tony Sindelar as he guides four players through a tale of greed, betrayal, and weird old-timey accents in the improvisational game Fiasco.

Tony Sindelar with Mikah Sargent, Aleen Simms, Glenn Fleishman and Monty Ashley


88

Pantheon of Muppets

Game Night

We return with yet more stupid guesses about your stupid answers to our stupid questions! Two “families” of Incomparable panelists compete for glory and adulation, and also something about Cool Cat.

Jason Snell with Brian Hamilton, Dan Moren, David J. Loehr, Erika Ensign, Jean MacDonald, Tiffany Arment, Mikah Sargent and Steve Lutz


87

You Shall Not Pass

Game Night

Based on a survey of Incomparable listeners, it’s time once again for a battle between two “families” of podcast panelists, who will attempt to guess the strange answers our listeners gave to innocuous questions! Along the way we’ll build a hamburger, discover monsters, and ponder the mysteries of Benedict Cumberbatch.

(Kathy had the baby the next day. She has returned to Team Pacific Northwest.)

Jason Snell with Glenn Fleishman, Kelly Guimont, Monty Ashley, Aleen Simms, Shannon Sudderth, Tony Sindelar, Cicero Holmes and Kathy Campbell


86

Death and Ferris Wheels

Game Night

On this episode, we play the new game, You Think You Know Me, created by Ami Baio, a card game in which you win by knowing facts and beliefs of the people with whom you’re playing. If Cards Against Humanity is “a party game for horrible people,” You Think You Know Me is somewhere on the other end of the scale. This trans-Atlantic episode features notable cultural confusion, accidental personal insights, and discussions of mortality! Hilarity, as they say, ensues.

Glenn Fleishman with Antony Johnston, Dan Moren, Kathy Campbell, Liz Myles and Tony Sindelar

Inconceivable!: Always Trust Mr. Peanut

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

Smug and acrimonious are the watchwords in this installment, as our two teams butt heads while trying to figure out the difference between medieval weaponry and dairy products, identify Star Trek movie scores, and expand some tricky abbreviations. Mikah Sargent, Alyssa Franke, and Chip Sudderth team up to take on Kelly Guimont, Brian Hamilton, and Liz Myles for bragging rights.
