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!

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.

Players control Sonic as he weaves his way through classic levels from the video game, collecting rings and freeing the occasional fuzzy animal from robot slavery. Can the power of "blast processing" be replicated in cardboard form, or will this one have us desperately searching for oxygen bubbles?
