Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Party Gamecast

The Party Gamecast featuring the Party Game Cast is a podcast about party games, and games you take to parties. The Dice Tower Network's hottest party includes a group of diverse gamers, from hard core strategy nerds, to light strategy gamers. General geeks that think games can be fun, to senior citizens who play Agricola. Video gamers that will be wrangled into to playing games, to guys that only play poker and know nothing about board games. The cast changes episode to episode but usually the Moderator Bruce is joined by Mike, Erika, Rocki, Maureen and Chris however new guests show up all the time. If you want to know how a game will play in a party atmosphere, with a mix of tastes and styles, then this is the show for you.

In this episode we sampled the latest Lays potato chip flavors, reviewed a (non-party) game about some fairly obscure Spider Man villains, and tried to guess what our friends were thinking. We mostly failed to do the latter. We succeeded at eating chips though, so there's that.

 


WHAT THE FOOD

We tried three new Lays potato chip flavors: bacon wrapped jalapeño popper, fried pickles with ranch, and deep dish pizza. Mmm, fried flavor engineering.

On this episode of The Party Gamecast featuring the Party Game Cast Bruce is in the studio presenting the last couple months of the Patreon Party. 

From this point forward, we will be releasing the What the Food, and Patreon Party episodes from about a month and a half prior. This time we are presenting a whole back catalog.

First you get the May Patreon Party, where we talk about bacon jam, and bacon jam accessories.

THEN

The June Patreon Party in which we talk about the game Blank from Hub Games. (we call it the July episode, don't believe us)

In this episode, we ate some pickles sent to us by a listener (!) and some celebratory Oreos.  I guess we played a couple of games too.  Yeah, we murdered each other in Hellapagos, then murdered the news in Action News.

 

 

WHAT THE FOOD

 

We ate some very yummy pickles that other folks with less sophisticated palettes did not appreciate and celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of Michael Jackson's walking on the moon with some Oreos.  They also turned out to not be filled with cheese, more's the pity.

In this, our 86th episode, the Party Gamecast featuring the Party Game Cast examined the remaining two Spiel des Jahres nominees for party game of the year for 2019: LAMA and Werewords. We took a look at a possible predecessor of Werewords called Insider as well. We also ate some chips and chocolate and did a faithful reenactment of that one episode of Night Court where the defendant was dead and the actors were all members of a community theater improv group. I swear I remember that episode. It might have been the cough syrup.
