Dice Tower Network Podcast: Flip the Table

Most board game shows focus on the latest and greatest, or time-tested classics...the crew from Flip the Table have taken it upon themselves to review all the rest. They've combed charity shops and salvage stores for cheesy, weird, and obscure board games; licensed cash-grabs, VHS games, bizarre kids' games, and everything else in between. Why would they do this? Because they can...and because examining The Other Side of Board Games is a great way to learn more about what makes board games tick. Join Flip the Table as they suffer for your entertainment. And remember...in Soviet Russia, Table Flips You!

We engage in VCR espionage as we play SpyQuest from 1994! Players first watch one of three thrilling thirty-minute "spy movies," then race across the globe to collect clues, survive interrogation, and avoid sabotage in order to discover the secret location. Does this game make players feel like a secret agent, or does it make them feel like they need an aspirin? FTT investigates.

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?
