Episode 109: Dream Phone


In our third-to-last show, we revisit the 90's "Dreamy dude" genre of games with Electronic Dream Phone! Using the iconic pink phone, players call all the boys at school and interrogate them to determine who the "secret admirer" is, all while using cards to extract additional clues from the other players. Does this game measure up to the standard of Heartthrob, or is it as obsolete as a land line?

Is this game worth your TIME and the SPACE in your collection?

Episode 106: Tales of the Crystals


In our first and only venture into the world of role playing games, we cover Tales of the Crystals; a 1993 audio cassette game from Milton Bradley. Players assume the role of crystal-bearing adventurers guided through a mystical adventure through a combination of magnetic tape and randomly drawn cards. Will this game transport us to a "World of myth and magic," or did this game go the way of Crystal Pepsi for a reason?
