Episode 52: TV Scrabble

For the first time since our very fourth episode, it's a Chuck Woolery themed Flip the Table as we take on the game you've played all your life...but never quite like this! TV Scrabble is the 1987 board game based on the TV game show, which itself was based on the 1948 board game (give yourself a minute to parse that sentence). This game brings the rotating sets and Woolerific game show action home as players solve crossword-style clues to score points, while avoiding the dreaded "Stopper." But can a game two generations removed from its source material manage to please board game fans and game show fans alike? Woolery!

Episode 51: Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?

Take a trip with us to the 90's, where the world's most dangerous criminals were often pursued and captured  by young children. In "Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?" players travel the US searching for stolen national landmarks, obtaining a warrant, and arresting criminals with extremely punny names. This board game version swaps the cumbersome nature of reading an encyclopedia for the streamlined simplicity of multiple choice questions...but can our panel of gumshoes stop VILE with their knowledge of elementary-level geography, or will Carmen Sandiego escape yet again? Plus, in this week's battle of wits, Professor Laserbooks presents an old favorite with a new twist...

Episode 50: The Bionic Special

In this special double-episode, we're replacing all our limbs and taking on two games of Bionic proportions! First, we step into the track suit of Steve Austin (The other one) in The Six Million Dollar Man game, where we'll spin and move our way into brick walls until we prove which OSI agent is the real deal. Then, in The Bionic Woman, we'll travel around a sort of 70's fantasy landscape rescuing children for big points! Does this Bionic hardware stand the test of time, or has it become obsolete government property?

Episode 49: The Legend of Zelda

Enjoy this special edition gold-colored mp3 as we pick up our wooden swords and embark upon The Legend of Zelda! This board game features multiple players controlling a single Link as he travels the vast overworld of Hyrule and flips over random enemy tiles until he defeats Ganon or someone dies. Does the panel have sufficient hearts to survive this journey, or will they be left with a dead battery and a corrupt save file?

Episode 48: The McDonald's Game

We're taking off our shoes and ascending the twisty pipe-slide as we prepare to descend into The McDonald's Game from 1975! This super-rare, super-retro title pits Ronald, Grimace, Hamburglar, and Birdie against each-other in a hamburger-slinging game of listening, memorization, and quick-thinking. We race to complete each-other's orders to score points...and strategically decide when to intentionally mess them up. This game will definitely make you hungry, but will it make you happy? Flip the Table investigates.
