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.

Don’t Show Your Bossk

Break out your Lego bounty hunters and put away your adult Wookiee holo-entertainment—it’s time for the game where Incomparable listeners infuriate and confuse Incomparable panelists with their opinions about Star Wars! Two teams feud, like families, in a galaxy-spanning battle for points, planets, and porgs.

Jason Snell with Erika Ensign, Tony Sindelar, Dan Moren, David J. Loehr, Kelly Guimont and Monty Ashley

His Nose

Random Pursuit

This is another genre-editions only episode, in which we wonder where the heck the Doctor is, are overwhelmed by Harry Potter, and discover just how terrible the genre questions really are.

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky with Dan Moren, Shelly Brisbin, Katrina Griffiths, David J. Loehr and Tansy Rayner Roberts


146

This Belt Bucky is Trickle

Parsely (Action Castle)

Howdy pardner! It’s time for tumbleweeds and cactuses, as we head to the Old West for a text adventure. You’re sleeping one off, but there’s trouble afoot! Can our players avoid getting shot or being victimized by the many dangers of the desert? Probably not.

Tony Sindelar with Aleen Simms, Dan Moren, James Thomson, Monty Ashley and Will Wagner


145

7 or C?

Game Night

It’s the second-ever (and first public) episode of 7 or C! It’s a game where all the questions are about sevens or C. Seriously, that’s it.

Tony Sindelar and James Thomson with Antony Johnston, Shelly Brisbin, Glenn Fleishman and Kathy Campbell


144

Contestants Are Angry

Friendly Competition

The music of REM, the randomness of numbers, improvised poetry, and a real live joke contest are just some of the shenanigans in the latest edition of everyone’s favorite game show where everything stays friendly — except for occasional animosity toward the host, which is totally fair.

Lex Friedman and Dan Moren with Julia Skott, Kathy Campbell, Glenn Fleishman, Tony Sindelar and Mick Murtha

Unexpected Batman

Random Pursuit

In our first ever genre editions-only episode of Random Pursuit, we discover Kathy and Antony are trivia twins…mostly. Also, when in doubt, answer 18.

Great For Baseball

Friendly Competition

It’s time for more Friendly Competition, the podcast where friends compete against each other in ridiculous contests of skill, luck, and speed. Beatles songs, poetry, and plenty of wackiness all ensue!

Lex Friedman and Dan Moren with Adal Rifai, Monty Ashley, Jason Snell, Erika Ensign and John Moltz


141

Do the Toilets Pay You?

Random Pursuit

Hope you’re ready to yell answers at your listening device again because Random Pursuit is back — with a new development! Erika finally admitted she needed help and convinced Steven to come on board to keep score (and occasionally read Wikipedia to us). How many mounties does it take to make a podcast episode? Listen and find out!

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky with Annette Wierstra, Scott McNulty, Jean MacDonald, Glenn Fleishman and Deborah Stanish

Fight!

Welcome back to “Are You The Spy?” Panelists must name clues that point to potential topics like the Joker, vampire slayers, or The Bachelor. 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 Batman villains, reality tv shows, fictional jobs, and musicals 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 Jean MacDonald, Mois├ęs Chiullan, Antony Johnston, Annette Wierstra and Shelly Brisbin

Bring Your Own Backstory

Parsely (Action Castle)

The Parsely Action Castle trilogy continues with ACTION CASTLE IV. All your favorite nerds are here to pepper Tony with commands as they seek to discover the meaning of Actions and Castles! Go north and ride west to find daggers, rope, crossbows, and haircuts!

Tony Sindelar with Glenn Fleishman, Monty Ashley, Shelly Brisbin, Kathy Campbell, James Thomson, Brian Hamilton, Allison Truj and Dan Moren
