You’re Rolling Like Terrible People

Game Night

Random Pursuit returns! In this game, players have to answer questions from random categories randomly selected across 12 different editions of Trivial Pursuit! And this time things get a little dark… and a little blue. Glenn’s kids, look away! (And all other kids, too, probably). They say sex and death make for good drama… who knew they were for good trivia contests, too?

Inconceivable!: The Count Of Monte Brisco County

Inconceivable!

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

The show picks up a few new voices this week, who are immediately put to the test with their knowledge of time travel movies, a round of “what doesn’t fit?”, and finally decipher some strange books trying to ride on the coattails of a popular novel. Kathy Campbell, Antony Johnston, and Quinn Rose face off against Kelly Guimont, Glenn Fleishman, and Liz Myles, while host Dan Moren and scorekeeper Lex Friedman mediate.

Turns Out: A Dog Named Bodyslam

Turns Out

With the fall TV season getting underway, what better time to take a look at some TV pilots that didn’t quite make it?

Also featuring the most Glenningest moment of Glenning, turns out.

Inconceivable!: Inclined To Go For The Liquor

Inconceivable!

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

Our teams sing the body corporate as they try to identify fictional companies, then put their musical skills to the test as they play name that tune with movie scores. Finally, they roll the dice on a round of board game movie mash-ups. Host Dan Moren and scorekeeper Lex Friedman lay down the law when Liz Myles, Steve Lutz, and Marisa McClellan take on Antony Johnston, Brianna Wu, and Jason Snell in a battle for the ages.

Recorded in front of a live audience at Emerald City Comicon 2017! Hear the audience gasp and applaud! Witness our attempts to share three microphones among seven people! Marvel at our host’s total inability to correctly use a $10 scoreboard!

We’ve recruited several writers from the realms of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror to form two teams of first-time panelists. They’ll do battle with devious acronyms, attempt to find which of these things is not like the other, and try their hands at a Golden Age of Television edition of mashed-up movie plots.

Hug Per Point

Game Night

There Is a Sign Here

Action Castle

Turns Out: Yule Cat Saves the Kids

Turns Out

Let’s see…Sondheim’s songbook, horse skulls, the ghost of Paul Lynde, why pissed on shark is not necessarily better than the pissed off kind, dinner at Sardi’s, goat erections, truly stinky cheese, the wrong Perry Mason, fountain boys, Christmas Pickles and where to stick them, the worst Deliverance adaptation, and a joke for the Rob Brydon fans? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at the Incomparable Game Show. Also, we premiere some new game show concepts, Moises gets an explicit tag, and we find out who actually wins this round.

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

Recorded at the Now Hear This festival in Anaheim, California, our two teams of veteran panelists face off in front of a live (if small) audience, as they attempt to recall important—if arcane—instructions from movies, solve spooooooooky mashed up monster movies, and partake in a bit of movie literary mathemagic. Host Dan Moren and scorekeeper Jason Snell oversee the proceedings while Steven Schapansky, Monty Ashley, and Erika Ensign face off against Aleen Simms, Brian Hamilton, and Steve Lutz.

Low Definition: The Spooky Edition

Low Definition

When quidnuncs screeve in hempen hahas, and strange and tasteless words echo through the fjords…

By your powers combined, this episode’s panelists take on a spate of trivia about the classic ’90s cartoon Captain Planet and the Planeteers, play a rousing round of What’s the Difference?, and manage to decipher a host of characters who are stranger (in fiction). Frank Wu, Lisa Schmeiser, and Steve Lutz take on Marisa McClellan, Scott McNulty, and Erika Ensign in a battle that will shake the ages, while Dan Moren and scorekeeper Lex Friedman try to keep a semblance of order.

Low Definition

We’re back with more ridiculous definitions! Moze returns from his recent victory, but has to deal with the pressure of being a champion as everyone attempts to avoid falling into his trap. Steve has a good feeling about the victory chances of several contestants who are not Moze. Effigies are built, hats are worn, little ducks are blown, and maybe Mr. Spock will even find love.

Game Night: International Genus

Game Night

Representatives from three different nations square off in a battle of 1980s trivia! (Trivia from the 1980s, not trivia about the 1980s.) Canada invented Trivial Pursuit and we’re playing from the U.S. edition, so they’ve got the upper hand. Will our UK players be confused by strange American questions? Will the very definition of geography be disputed? Yes!

Jason Snell with Erika Ensign, Steven Schapansky, Monty Ashley, Chip Sudderth, Antony Johnston and Liz Myles

Low Definition: Hell Is Other People’s Words

More ridiculous definitions, both real and imagined. Plus, we’ll take your orders for some disgusting mixed drinks, and ponder a Slovenian proverb.

Inconceivable!

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

This month mash-ups of movie actors and Dungeons & Dragons classes are a critical hit, our panelists attempt to identify the critical difference between crazy sci-fi weapon names and crazy sci-fi spaceship names, and everybody’s a critic when it comes to one-star reviews of famous works of literature. Steven Schapansky, Erika Ensign, and Tony Sindelar face off against Kat Griffiths, Monty Ashley, and Liz Myles while host Dan Moren and scorekeeper Lex Friedman oversee the proceedings.

Game Night: Gospel According to Short Round

Game Night

We’re back with another edition of trivia from the 1980s, as we play the original Trivial Pursuit and struggle with questions about geography, railroads, and famous mobsters, all the while grappling with the very definition of the word “leisure.” (Also, we’re not sure if Glenn Fleishman is very good at trivia.)

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

And now for something completely…well, partially different. Team United Kingdom faces off against Team North America for a grudge match, the likes of which have not seen in at least two hundred years. They’ll need to suss out the true identities of characters who go by many names, test their knowledge of the length of TV show runs, and of course deal with our terrible pop music/nerd mash-ups. Joining host Dan Moren and scorekeeper Lex Friedman are Antony Johnston, Liz Myles, and Paul Cornell for the UK side, and Christa Mrgan, Guy English, and Aleen Simms repping the US and Canada.

34

Turns Out: What Am I Doohan Hangin’ Round?

Turns Out

Aleen Simms and Glenn Fleishman join host David J. Loehr in trying to pull the Andorian velour over Scott McNulty’s eyes. Also, we play the most obscure lightning round yet, we find out who’s the Shatner in the room, and we try not to get annoyed when our flight gets delayed. You wouldn’t like us when our flight gets delayed.

Think you can identify a movie from its final line? It’s harder than it sounds. Our panel tries their hand at that task, along with ferreting out fake superhero alter egos and Godzilla monsters, identifying extra obscure jargon, and playing a rousing game of “one of these things is not like the other.” Joining host Dan Moren and fill-in scorekeeper Jason Snell are Steve Lutz, Scott McNulty, Brian Hamilton, Marisa McClellan, Glenn Fleishman, and Brianna Wu.

Pundit Showdown: February Flashback Edition

Pundit Showdown

There was a time when our thoughts turned to Super Bowls and holiday-quarter Apple financial results and the death of the Shack. That long-ago time was February 2015, when Philip Michaels dusted off the old Pundit Showdown format he stole from the BBC and took it to a new level.

That episode was, for reasons undisclosed, never made available publicly. Until now. Does it augur future episodes of the Pundit Showdown here at The Incomparable Game Show? Only time will tell…

Our topics include: “Star Trek” ships, jumping off points for untold stories, future “Trek” TV series, and favorite characters. Plus we all reveal our Starfleet departments and shirt colors!

Inconceivable!: Mansplained to Doom!

Inconceivable!

Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure. As ever, host Dan Moren and scorekeeper/announcer Lex Friedman are on hand to oversee the proceedings, doling out points where appropriate.

This month, join panelists Shannon Sudderth, Monty Ashley, Erika Ensign, Steve Lutz, Brianna Wu, and John Siracusa as they try to identify arcane jargon, pick out which of these things is not like the other, and decipher punny nerd clues to familiar phrases. Are Monty’s answers trustworthy? Have you consulted your physician about Orcrist? Do any of these questions meet with John’s approval? Find out, on the latest episode of Inconceivable!

Counterclockwise: Space Minivan

Counterclockwise

It’s time for Counterclockwise, the panel show where four people discuss four geeky aspects of a single topic, and it’ll all get done in less than 42 minutes.

This week on our inaugural Counterclockwise, Jason and Dan are joined by Tony Sindelar and John Siracusa to discuss “Star Wars.”

Our topics include: “Star Wars” ships and vehicles, the best scenes from the original trilogy, classic video games and books, and who’s going to die in “The Force Awakens.” Plus, we all pick our Sith names!

Inconceivable!: Serious Nerdery

Inconceivable!

Welcome to the first episode of Inconceivable!—a show that tests our panelists’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure. Each month, two teams will face off to answer diabolical questions about TV shows, comics, movies, books, games, and more. Host Dan Moren and scorekeeper/announcer Lex Friedman oversee the proceedings, doling out hard-earned points where appropriate.

To launch the show, we handpicked a roster of some of our favorite Incomparable panelists to compete for your amusement. Join Scott McNulty, Georgia Dow, Lisa Schmeiser, Tony Sindelar, Erika Ensign, and, of course, Jason Snell as they identify arcane jargon, test their knowledge of classic books of fantasy and sci-fi, and explore the colliding worlds of mashed-up movies.

(From the people who bring you The Incomparable, Game Show is a new podcast featuring panels, pundits, and more! Rather than being a single weekly game, this podcast contains several different games (with different hosts) rotating through from week to week. What they all have in common is chat, humor, and fun. To subscribe to Game Show, use this RSS feed: feeds.theincomparable.com/gameshow. We’ve got more game shows on the way, so keep watching the skies!)

Tennis with Errol Flynn

Game Night

This was originally an April Fool’s Day episode of Total Party Kill, before there was a Game Show. We’ve moved it to the Game Show feed because that’s really what it is. It features our friends playing an entire Trivial Pursuit game. The whole thing. Eight players, the original Genus Edition, no waiting.
