Matt, Quinns and Paul return for 2016! Our 37th EVER podcast is now live in our podcast section, on iTunes, on Stitcher, it's everywhere, it's completely out of our hands at this point, we're so sorry.
New games discussed include Billionaire Banshee, Flick 'em Up and Marrying Mr. Darcy. Old games discussed include Tikal and Pictomania. Million year-old games discussed include The Fun Stick Game.
Most importantly of all, our jingle roster has grown! Huge thanks to SU&SD fan Alex Cannon for sending in a folksy sting for Folk Game of the Month.
Perhaps we should make a quick round of Billionaire Banshee a regular feature too... ?
