Episode 21 - Hidden Traitor Games

April 2, 2020

Hi folks! We were originally planning to do some April Fools silliness for this episode, but given everything that's going on right now, it didn't really seem like a good time. So relax, stay at home, and listen to us talk about Hidden Traitor games. Oh, and wash your dang hands. Yes, again.

    • We start the episode with a weird television tie-in game, and end it with...well, a weird television tie-in game.
    • We learn that, once again, Oink Games came up with a clever idea that was then re-used in a much more commercially successful Western game.
    • Brian, as usual, shoehorns in a game or two that just barely fit the episode criteria just because he wants to talk about them.
    • We break Mike.

As always, we appreciate your listening and would love to hear your comments on any or all of these items, and especially a review on iTunes if you have the time and inclination!
