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.

Unfortunately, Six

UK Triv

The Hairless Head of Lars Huntington

Low Definition

It’s time for a new version of Low Definition, the likes of which have never been seen before! (Unless you tuned in to Relay FM’s annual fundraiser, anyway.) Jason Snell takes the reins of the show and forces usual host Steve Lutz and several other players to identify the meaning of tech terms or supply their own! It’s a high-scoring shootout only a screenager could love.

Jason Snell with Steve Lutz, Glenn Fleishman, Shelly Brisbin, Brian Hamilton, Chip Sudderth and Monty Ashley


168

Chaos is a C Word

It’s time for the second annual installment of “7 or C”, the game show no one asked for. Enjoy a discussion of how many cities Glenn was born in, what cheeses are memorable, and a VOCABULARY QUIZ.

Content warning: the amount of blood in the human body is discussed.

Tony Sindelar and James Thomson with Glenn Fleishman, Kathy Campbell, Antony Johnston and Annette Wierstra


167

As Wrong As Possible

Friendly Competition

It’s time for another Friendly Competition, with games of chance, skill, rapping, and rhyming. Hear Glenn and Jean spit verses, listen in on Bohemian Rhapsody trivia, and meet your new friend Silent Carl.

Lex Friedman and Dan Moren with Erika Ensign, Glenn Fleishman, Jean MacDonald and Shelly Brisbin


166

My Step-Dad is Aquaman

Inconceivable!

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

In our latest rounds of torturous trivia we question our panelists about musical end credits, actors who cross universes, and political/espionage movie mash-ups. Cicero Holmes, Shelly Brisbin, and Tony Sindelar take on Jean MacDonald, Glenn Fleishman, and Kathy Campbell in an epic game for all time.

Dan Moren and Lex Friedman with Cicero Holmes, Shelly Brisbin, Tony Sindelar, Jean MacDonald, Glenn Fleishman and Kathy Campbell

Most Valuable Ghost

What better time than SHOCKTOBER to introduce you to Ghost Court, the improvisational game of spooky arbitrations and ghastly rulings. Thrill at the intricacies of landlord v. ghost, ghost dog ownership, and supernaturally incurred accidents.

Tony Sindelar with Glenn Fleishman, James Thomson, Kathy Campbell, Mikah Sargent, Dan Moren, Monty Ashley, Erika Ensign, Brian Hamilton and Shelly Brisbin


164

Pixie Duck Is My Roller Derby Name

Parsely (Action Castle)

It’s SHOCKTOBER here at the Incomparable Game Show, and it’s time for another great Parsely Adventure—Pumpkin Town! Will our players find all the halloween candy, or be thwarted by the nefarious parser?

Tony Sindelar with Steve Lutz, Kathy Campbell, Monty Ashley, James Thomson and Will Wagner


163

Blame it on Burbank

Game Night

We go back to where it all started! Let’s play the feud… the actual original home game of Family Feud, with answers compiled by polling 1970s audiences standing in line to watch “Family Feud!” Survey Says…

Monty Ashley with Tony Sindelar, Cicero Holmes, Glenn Fleishman, Jean MacDonald and Shelly Brisbin


162

The Villain Monologue

Are You The Spy?

Welcome back to “Are You The Spy?” Panelists must name clues that point to potential topics like Minecraft, Futurama, or River Song. One spy doesn’t know the topic they’re trying to discuss, and must figure it out before the rest of the group figures them out. In this episode, players put their knowledge (or lack thereof) of video games, Doctor Who companions, animated shows, and mystery tropes to good use.

If you would like to play along as a civilian and know the topic words that the spies are trying to guess, click here to see the answers. If you would like to play along as the spy, just start listening!

Quinn Rose with Cicero Holmes, Kathy Campbell, James Thomson and Dan Moren


161

Cleveland Browns Callback

Trivial Retreat

It’s Trivial Retreat, the game where we play the original Genus edition of Trivial Pursuit backward, where players must invent or guess the questions and categories based entirely on what’s on the back of the card. In this episode, a brave group ponders the history of the NFL, the only international war crime tribunal to usurp the executive powers of the U.S. government, and a diminutive Muppet troll.

Jason Snell with Shelly Brisbin, Dan Moren, Antony Johnston, Jean MacDonald, Chip Sudderth and David J. Loehr


160

Interdimensional Shaft

Time for another round of “Trust Me I’m a Superhero.” Will the best superhero leverage the power of fashion, grizzly bears, sea horses, steam, or cone to save the day? (Probably not cone.)

Tony Sindelar with Annette Wierstra, Kathy Campbell, Glenn Fleishman and James Thomson
