Episode 20: MAD Magazine with Rich Sommer!!!

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad episode of Flip the Table as Rich Sommer from TV's Mad Men joins us to review MAD Magazine: The Board Game! This 1979 classic combines the subversive wit and satire of the iconic magazine with all the thrill and excitement of an old roll & move board game. Players travel counterclockwise around the board as they do everything they can to lose all the money they have in a chair-swapping, impression-of-a-rock doing, deliberately-vague-rules-interpreting slugfest. Many of us had this one as a kid...but does it hold up almost 35 years later? Also: We find out how someone with an actual IMDB listing fares in our first ever Celebrity Battle of Wits!

  1. Keep em coming guys. I've been listening since the beginning (well... almost) and love what you've done. You continually entertain me on my never-ending commutes to work and appreciate the production value and sound quality I have come to expect now.

    Well done.
