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.

The Famous Bat-Gun

Game Night

Break out your utility belt, dust off your high school bookshelf, and step into the nearest available time machine, because we’re one episode short of the big Game Show 100th Episode Spectacular! To fill the time, let’s play one more round of Feuding Families, the game where our panelists try to guess your ridiculous answers to our stupid questions!

Game Night Jason Snell with Chip Sudderth, Cicero Holmes, Brian Hamilton, Aleen Simms, Kathy Campbell and Monty Ashley

K’on Bragh!

Game Night

The trivia questions are random, the topics even more random, and yet the players keep coming back for more punishment! It’s the return of Random Pursuit, where it turns out that fandom is great, but trivia boxes designed to serve fandom are not. Not at all.

Erika Ensign with Antony Johnston, Jean MacDonald, Kelly Guimont, Monty Ashley, Steve Lutz and Steven Schapansky


97

That’s Not How Trees Work

Game Night

If a train leaves from Montreal at five past the hour, how many cats will catch 100 mice in the barber shop? It’s time for Mindtrap, a game of brain teasers, puzzles, and atrocious puns.

Brian Hamilton with Tony Sindelar, Jean MacDonald, Dan Moren, Kathy Campbell, Marisa McClellan and Scott McNulty


96

That Bear!

Game Night

We’re back with even more randomly selected trivia questions from even more random editions of Trivial Pursuit! Star Wars! Doctor Who! Religion questions for kids! No subject is too obscure, and no question is too easy.

Erika Ensign with Annette Wierstra, Dan Moren, Deborah Stanish, Katrina Griffiths, Scott McNulty and Steven Schapansky


95

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.

Tony Sindelar with Dan Moren, Jason Snell, Aleen Simms, Kathy Campbell, Steve Lutz and Monty Ashley


94

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.

Antony Johnston with Erika Ensign, Steven Schapansky, Steve Lutz, Jason Snell and Dan Moren

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
