The Other Side of Board Games...

Welcome! You've reached the home of "Flip the Table," a podcast about The Other Side of Board Games. Most board game shows focus on the latest-and-greatest, or time-tested classics.  We have taken it upon ourselves to comb our local charity shops and salvage stores for the other stuff...we're talking licensed cash-grabs, kids games that kids are too smart for, gimmicky games with strange (and only occasionally functional) gadgets, and all the other games that tend to gather dust in the back of closets with the rest of the third-string Nintendo 64 cartridges.

Why would we do this? Because we can. And because it's a way to more deeply explore the hobby we love so well.  By examining those games that your non-gamer family thought it would be a great idea to buy you for your birthday, we learn what really makes games tick. Plus, who doesn't like a little schadenfreude, am I right? We suffer so you can be entertained. You're welcome.

"But WHERE is the show," you might hypothetically ask? "Patience," we retort. We've recorded several episodes already, and will be launching the show in late June for your entertainment. In the meantime, you can follow this very blog for updates, as well as some sneak previews of the games we'll be covering (as well as some other fun stuff). And, hey, Twitter is fun, so you should follow @tableflipsyou and say hello!

Keep an eye on this space for more information...until then, remember, "In Soviet Russia, Table Flips YOU!"
