Clear Off Your Kitchen Tables, It’s Time For Traditional Games!

Traditional games. You know, the games that kids used to play before the video games took their predecessors out back behind the shed and put a bullet in their head? We’re talking about classic card, dice and board games in this episode; their history, the math behind them, and how we came to be fans of them. But don’t worry, there’s still our usual brand of fun. We start off with a bunch of dice in an old Crown Royal bag, come up with the best idea for a middle-aged woman gambling den, learn that the creators of probability math were degenerate gamblers, point out that while the Moors brought the standard deck of cards to Europe, the Europeans were the ones that made all the face cards white, describe HG Wells as the world’s first grognard, and finally come to understand that learning to play a board game is a perfect metaphor for sex.

The 2013 Hangover

We’re kicking off 2014 by talking about 2013, which really seems like the dumbest thing we can do, but, hey, we never claimed to be smart – just unreliable.

Specifically, we’re talking about the biggest video games, movies, tv shows, and music from the year. We just start off talking about dicks, Zach completely screws up reading something off the paper in front of him, Shawn and Jonathan fess up to their man-crushes on Stephen Amell, Nicci serenades us with her favorite Imagine Dragons tune, and we kinda sorta but not really at all make resolutions for the New Year.
