Episode 33 - Two-Player Games

May 2, 2021

We recorded this back on Valentine's Day, but it's taken us this long to release it, so...well, enjoy some two-player games for Cinco de Mayo, maybe? In this episode:

  • Sandi has a crossbow!
  • Frank tells us about a game that made him bleed. (This is not related to Sandi having a crossbow...yet.)
  • Mike single-handedly revolutionizes the history of agriculture, and thus civilization itself!
  • Brian forgets Frank's name.
  • Jayson points out a very...European ad for Klask.

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!
