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 our penultimate episode, we travel back to the magical land of the 1990's to play Myst, a board game based on the classic CD-ROM adventure game! This title somehow wedges in real-time jigsaw puzzle building as two players or teams vie for control of key locations from the computer game. Does this one somehow find all the right switches? Tune in to find out!

In our third-to-last show, we revisit the 90's "Dreamy dude" genre of games with Electronic Dream Phone! Using the iconic pink phone, players call all the boys at school and interrogate them to determine who the "secret admirer" is, all while using cards to extract additional clues from the other players. Does this game measure up to the standard of Heartthrob, or is it as obsolete as a land line?

In this super-sized episode, we revisit the Whoniverse by playing the most complex game ever reviewed on Flip the Table...Doctor Who: The Game of Time and Space from 1980! This Games Workshop pseudo-classic pits multiple incarnations of The Doctor against each other as they wrestle the Keys of Chronos from baddies like Daleks, Cybermen, and each-other! Is this game worth your TIME and the SPACE in your collection?

We're in front of a LIVE audience at the Granite Game Summit in Nashua, New Hampshire to talk about the Harlem Globetrotters game from 1971! Bill Corey of The Cubist Podcast joins us as we discover if the fourth wall bending athletic shenanigans of the 70's Globetrotters can be properly expressed via set collection. Plus, a Battle of Wits spectacle you have to hear to believe!

In our first and only venture into the world of role playing games, we cover Tales of the Crystals; a 1993 audio cassette game from Milton Bradley. Players assume the role of crystal-bearing adventurers guided through a mystical adventure through a combination of magnetic tape and randomly drawn cards. Will this game transport us to a "World of myth and magic," or did this game go the way of Crystal Pepsi for a reason?
