Turns out somebody made a Twin Peaks board game back in the early 90s. Season 3 just started, and it's our duty to unearth this weird cultural artifact. But maybe we should've just left it in the box.

Travis, Nick, Paul, and Jaccob are now trapped in the Red Room. The game is a trap, perfectly crafted to be the worst board game we've ever played, and damning its players to an eternity in the Black Lodge. We'll see you in your dreams.

We've returned to Nick's collection of childhood games again, with Dread Pirate, a game by Steve Edmiston and Front Porch Classics!

Nick, Paul, Travis, and Jaccob compete to be the most dreadful pirate in a fantastical Caribbean analog! There are so many vibrantly colored beads and small metal coins, and you get to put them into vibrantly colored faux-velvet pouches! Everything here is so beautiful! It's a shame it's just not very good though.

We've got Czech Games Edition (well, not the people [we'll get the people someday], but their game) in the studio this week, with Adrenaline!

Adrenaline is a first person arena shooter distilled into board game form! Paul plays a reptilian, Travis becomes that blue opera alien from the Fifth Element, Nick's a fun loving murderbot, & Jaccob becomes generic space marine. Bloodshed and friendship ensue, and CGE, as always, makes some of the best games around.

Oh man it's another Too Dumb for Games QUICKPLAY ft. Poop: the Game, and Jaccob and Travis!

Have you ever thought to yourself, gee, Uno would really be a lot better without the colors, but with poop jokes instead? No? I guess there were enough people out there thinking exactly that thought, because Poop: the Game got Kickstarted and found its way onto our shelf, into our hands, and into your ears. Poop is everywhere. We're sorry.

Here's a remaster of our review of the Fast & the Furious board game to celebrate the release of Fate of the Furious, featuring way better editing!

This week, Jaccob, Travis, Paul, and Nick get right up in one of the greatest film franchises of all time: Fast and the Furious. That is correct, there is a Fast and the Furious board game. Why? Your guess is as good as ours, but wow is it fun.

 This week we play Eight Epics, by Seiji Kanai! We also goof up just about every fact about the game's development, so, uh, oops.

Eight Epics is a game about math, and dice, with a theme draped over it! It's also a game that inspires obsessive discussion about the myriad benefits of regular, unstoppable granola consumption, so if you're a granola fan, check it out. If you're a fan of Seiji Kanai, this game, or people who know things about board games, beware, because we actually didn't like this one very much.

Travis went thrifting and brought us back something called Pointing Fingers, from Hasbro. Guess we have to play it.

Pointing Fingers is a game that alleges to be a "hilarious game of who did what." We found it to be more of a very bad, boring game that inspires discourse on the proper useage of modal verbs, and difficult and terrifying metaphysical thought experiments. I certainly won't spoil anything for you, dear listener, but I'll just leave an image of the box art below and you can guess if Hasbro's assertions about its game are correct.

Too Dumb for Games is back with Space Hulk: Death Angel - The Card Game!

Astartes, don your power armor and get ready to get sweaty in a highly homoerotic and deadly expedition into card games about cramped corridors. Travis, Nick, Jaccob, and Paul scrape together what little knowledge they have of the 40k universe to weave a tale of love, betrayal, and death, for you, dearest listener!

We're back for another social party game with Monikers, a Kickstarter game by Alex Hague and Justin Vickers! Wish we'd read the rules better, because we might've played it kinda wrong? Just a little bit?

Monikers is a game about getting your friends to guess words on cards, like Jareth the Goblin King, cocaine bears, and Phineas Gage. Travis and Paul dominate. Nick and Jaccob flounder. We try to get David Liebe Hart as a guest star.

2d4g gets violent with Superfight by Skybound Games!

Who'd win in a fight? A UFC champ that can turn into water, or a boyband that kills with a kiss? Pikachu with a time machine or King Kong? You aren't gonna find out just sitting there, so stick in those earbuds and strap the fuck in, cuz 2d4g's taking you to the most improbable of arenas.

Too Dumb for Games has existed for one whole year, so we're commemorating our lil b-day with a Games of Our Year edition! 

We take a trip down memory lane to look at the squalling, red-faced infant that was our podcast, and Travis, Nick, Jaccob, and Paul pick out their favorite games that we played for the podcast in 2016. We decided we'd extol the virtues of Mansions of Madness 2e, Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widow's Walk, Fast and the Furious: Full Throttle, and Cosmic Encounter.

Happy New Year! Too Dumb for Games is bringing in 2017 with ep. 26: Badsketball, wherein we unearth the ancient curse of 1971's Harlem Globetrotters Game by Milton Bradley!

If you ever find yourself dusting off a copy in some flea market or side-alley store full of mysterious Chinese artifacts, just put it down, walk away, and forget you ever saw it, because what lies inside is too powerful and evil for the weak souls of man.
