Episode 92: Guinness Game of World Records

Who doesn't like a good leaderboard? On this episode, the panel plays the Guinness Game of World Records, based on the famous book that was wedged next to the encyclopedias in your third grade class. It's a little bit of trivia and a whole lot of dexterity as players try to beat each-other's records in a race to 100 points. Is this 70's classic as much fun as poring through a bunch of tiny black-and-white text?

Episode 91: Dragons' Den

Before there was Shark Tank in the United States, there was (and is) Dragons' Den; a UK reality show where entrepeneurs pitch their grand schemes in hopes of getting a six-figure investment from some mean, rich people. This episode we join the excitement at home with the British version of the home game, where players hear off-the-wall pitches for real products and decide if they'll be a "Goldmine," "Hit," or "Flop." Is having the word "Dragon" in the title enough to make us want to invest in this one?

Episode 90: Ice Cube

Some games are less fun than watching paint dry...but are they less fun than watching ice melt? We'll finally be able to answer that question after playing  the 1972 oddity Ice Cube by Milton Bradley! Players torture each-other's ice pawns with salt, water, and pressure in a war of attrition to be the last cube standing. Will this rare title be a unique surprise, or will it leave us feeling cold?

By now you've discovered our April Fool's Day surprise, where The Party Gamecast (Featuring The Party Game Cast) took control of FTT for an episode! But what were we doing during that time? In case you haven't figured it out, we present to you our turn on The Party Gamecast. Did we manage to avoid playing bad games for once? Yeeeah, probably not.

Episode 89: MTV Remote Control

In the late 1980's, MTV shocked the world by not playing music videos for 30 minutes, and instead brought us the cult classic game show "MTV Remote Control." Now, Flip the Table takes on the home version, complete with clicky little remotes and irreverent TV trivia from decades gone by. Does this "Worthless game of useless TV knowledge" live up to its own tagline? Tune in to find out if this game will stay in the collection, or get sent packing straight through the basement wall.

CONTEST: Golden Geek Memes!

As you may know, Flip the Table was nominated for a Golden Geek award for Best Podcast! Not too shabby! And voting is open right now if you want to show your support!

In order to win it, though, we've got to get the word out! So we've cooked up a contest where, by using the power of Twitter, we can stir up support and get enough ironic joke votes to maybe steal this thing! All you have to do is make a cool meme and share it for a chance to win!

What kind of meme? You could do the old white text on a funny picture, a fake motivational poster, that one where the person rolls a 1 and fails, the possibilities are endless! (Just keep it clean, huh?) The most important thing is that your meme encourages people to vote for FTT in this year's Golden Geeks! And if you happen to make our favorite one, you could win this...

...that's right, a HAND-CRAFTED "McRibbage" board made by our own Favorite Party Clown Flip Florey! So how do you win? Here are the rules...

RULES (Updated 3/13/2016)

1. Make a meme encouraging people to vote for Flip the Table in the Golden Geeks and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #FTTforGoldenGeek, OR, post your meme on our Facebook group, OR, post it in our BGG guild! When sharing on social media, it's helpful if you post the link to the voting website, but not required.

2. Feel free to go through the many pictures on this blog to find raw material. If you're a member of our Facebook group or follow us on Twitter, you may find even more material to use!

3. DEADLINE: You have until Midnight EST on Friday, March 18th to get your entry in. Enter with as many unique entries as you like! Entries after the deadline will not be considered.

4. The Flip the Table Panel will choose a favorite some time after the end of the contest and send the winner their very own McRibbage board!

5. No purchase necessary, void where prohibited. We reserve the right to disqualify entrants for using non-family friendly material.

Simple stuff, right? Get those memes in, and don't forget to cast your vote! May the best meme win!

Episode 88: Sonic the Hedgehog

He's blue! He's spiky! He's Urkel-y! And he's fast! It's Sonic the Hedgehog on this episode, based on the original Sega Genesis game from the 1990's. Players control Sonic as he weaves his way through classic levels from the video game, collecting rings and freeing the occasional fuzzy animal from robot slavery. Can the power of "blast processing" be replicated in cardboard form, or will this one have us desperately searching for oxygen bubbles?
