In this episode, MONSTER PARTY asks the question: Are those kids torturing a naked drunk, or just playing OPERATION?
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, grab ahold of their joysticks, and take on one of their most challenging topics... GAMES!!!
Admittedly not the most game savvy of nerds, the MONSTER PARTY gang realized they needed the perfect guest to do this topic justice. Through a series of strategic moves, and bit of rolling the dice, they landed on a man who is a game designer, bestselling author, Disney Imagineer, and the best damn game historian in the universe! MONSTER PARTY welcomes... SCOTT ROGERS! (MAXIMO, PAC-MAN WORLD, GOD OF WAR, LEVEL UP! THE GUIDE TO GREAT VIDEO GAME DESIGN, SWIPE THIS! THE GUIDE TO TOUCHSCREEN GAME DESIGN, MICKEY'S FUN WHEEL CHALLENGE, RAYGUNS AND ROCKETSHIPS, PANTONE)
Then, by consulting the mystic "EYE OF ZOHAR", we also managed to nab game enthusiast, and a MONSTER PARTY friend of the show, who coincidentally happens to be the wife of Shawn Sheridan... GINA SHERIDAN!
Get ready for a 6 player journey through the entire history of games! We go from the earliest travel games (like the one in King Tut's tomb), on to the world of classic board games, the invention of PONG and the rise of the video games, the resurgence of pinball games, the arcade vs home console conundrum, the DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS revolution, and beyond!
Don't let your day go KERPLUNK! Listen now!
