A Penguin Knows to Respect a Gun

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.

A Squashed Bee Gee

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


I’ve Studied the Bible

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


Pantheon of Muppets

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


You Shall Not Pass

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


Death and Ferris Wheels

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.

The Ghost Has Spoken

Look, not every Game Show features a bunch of us in a room in person drinking alcohol and answering trivia questions. But this episode, recorded live in Los Angeles at the Gallifrey One convention, absolutely does. The explicit box has been checked, so go to bed, Glenn’s kids, as Erika Ensign asks us trivia questions from a randomly shuffled set of cards from a dozen different Trivial Pursuit games.

Erika Ensign with Deborah Stanish, Steven Schapansky, Chip Sudderth, Shannon Sudderth, Liz Myles, Steve Lutz and Jason Snell


The Answer’s Always Michael George

And again we cross the pond to Jolly Old Blighty, where Antony Johnston will confuse and confound a collection of North Americans with questions about the United Kingdom in the 1980s. From Andrew Ridgeley’s bandmate to old BBC sitcoms, we have literally no idea what Antony is on about.

Yelling at Rocks

We’re back with more random trivia from random trivia games! Now even more random, with the addition of even more editions of Trivial Pursuit!

Erika Ensign with Aleen Simms, Kathy Campbell, Marisa McClellan, Monty Ashley, Scott McNulty and Steven Schapansky


Would You Like to Buy an Apple?

Join us for our second visit to the Victorian Parlour, where we shall play more amusements and delights that would be as at home in the parlours of England as in the rail cars of America. It’s elemental, dear listener.

It All Boils Down to Valerie Bertinelli

If you like The Incomparable’s other Game Shows—well, this isn’t them. This is Clickthrough, a quiz show driven by the erratic behavior of its host, Glenn Fleishman, and Wikipedia’s random article feature. It’s like reading the encyclopedia, if it were written by flat-earth conspiracy theorists. Panelists receive points for correct answers, points for interesting answers, and points for making fun of Glenn. Correct answers lead to clicking through and falling down the rabbit hole of more articles.

Glenn Fleishman with Brian Hamilton, Dan Moren, Kathy Campbell and Monty Ashley
