NOTE TO ALL OUR LISTENERS: WE WILL NOT BE HERE NEXT SATURDAY, 12/15.  WE WILL BE BACK ON DECEMBER 22 FROM 8A-10A!

December 8, 2018

We played a few games this week, but today we put the spotlight on the board/word game “Through The Clues.”  This game is similar to the more popular word game “Password”, with an extra twist.  Much like that game, the goal is to come up with the word that the other players describe using clue words.  However, each clue is a two-word phrase, with one word being a decoy that has nothing to do with the answer.  For example, “Picnic” can be described with the clues “ant”, “food”, and “park”, but the clues are “ant farm”, “fast food”, and “park ranger”.  TTC is a fun game that can make you think.  Shaun considers this a 7, while Mike enjoyed it a bit more with an 8.5.

OUR RATING OF “THROUGH THE CLUES”: 7.75/10

Tammy made us a casserole this week using elk meat and tator tots with cheese.  We also had some french fries this week as well.  These were delicious, and french fries have that thing we love as gamers where they are easy to eat with one hand while continuing to play with your free hand.  Shaun called this meal an 8.5, and Mike says an 8.

OUR RATING OF ELK & TOT CASSEROLE AND FRIES: 8.25/10

Thanks to our guests Linda Gilbertson and Seth Nadel with the White Mountain Shooters Association for coming in today to tell us all about the shooting games and other events that are held at the Second Knoll Target Range.  These are awesome ways to become more proficient with firearms and have fun at the same time.  For more information, go online to www.wmsainc.org, call them at 928-205-3609, or visit the Second Knoll Target Range between 10-4p Sat-Mon, located 4.5 miles east of Show Low on Highway 60.

Big congratulations to all the winners of this year’s Game Awards, especially to “God of War” and “Red Dead Redemption 2” for being the biggest recipients of the evening.  We also saw some exciting reveals, and many other games get the praise that is definitely deserved.  We are looking forward to what kind of excellent adventures we will get to experience in 2019.  If you missed the show on Thursday, you can see the full thing online at www.thegameawards.com.
