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!

Flip the Table Episodes
Before there was Shark Tank in the United States, there was (and is) Dragons' Den; a UK reality show where entrepeneurs pitch their grand schemes in hopes of getting a six-figure investment from some mean, rich people. This episode we join the excitement at home with the British version of the home game, where players hear off-the-wall pitches for real products and decide if they'll be a "Goldmine," "Hit," or "Flop." Is having the word "Dragon" in the title enough to make us want to invest in this one?
Some games are less fun than watching paint dry...but are they less fun than watching ice melt? We'll finally be able to answer that question after playing the 1972 oddity Ice Cube by Milton Bradley! Players torture each-other's ice pawns with salt, water, and pressure in a war of attrition to be the last cube standing. Will this rare title be a unique surprise, or will it leave us feeling cold?
By now you've discovered our April Fool's Day surprise, where The Party Gamecast (Featuring The Party Game Cast) took control of FTT for an episode! But what were we doing during that time? In case you haven't figured it out, we present to you our turn on The Party Gamecast. Did we manage to avoid playing bad games for once? Yeeeah, probably not. HUGE thanks to our pals at The Party Gamecast for doing such a great job caring for FTT Tower while we were gone! Back to normal, such as it is, in three weeks.
In the late 1980's, MTV shocked the world by not playing music videos for 30 minutes, and instead brought us the cult classic game show "MTV Remote Control." Now, Flip the Table takes on the home version, complete with clicky little remotes and irreverent TV trivia from decades gone by. Does this "Worthless game of useless TV knowledge" live up to its own tagline? Tune in to find out if this game will stay in the collection, or get sent packing straight through the basement wall.
