Men at Work is the next beautiful box coming out of Pretzel Games, makers of Flick 'Em Up and Junk Art, and we love the heck out of it. And like those previous games, it functions as a lovely object, as well as a silly challenge, and - if you so choose - an arena where actual tactics can be deployed.
If you'd like to watch the full stream, with the beginning, the end and all of the hilarious comments in between, it'll be available here for the next sixty days. And if you'd like to hear about us talk about Men at Work on the podcast, you'll find that sweet ol' chat on episode #88.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
This week will be especially worth your time because we're playing a game that isn't even out yet- the next dexterity game from the makers of Flick 'Em Up and Junk Art, it's Men at Work!
If you've not joined in the fun on our Twitch streams yet, lemme tell you, it's an absolutely fantastic time. Our Twitch commenters are routinely a lot funnier than the stream itself, and as hosts we're really starting to find our groove.
In other words, try it! You might just like it.
Time for me to join the others and take my place. I'll see some of there!
In this episode, Matt and Quinns discuss the twin games of Cockroach Salad and Cockroach Soup, a discovery so exciting that Quinns has since hunted down all of Drei Magier's "Ugly Animals" games. The pair then move on to chatting about the wicked worldbuilding of Neon Gods, the dexterity magic of Men at Work, the small-form joy of Targi, the BEHEMOTH box that is Lisboa, and finally their game of the podcast, Blackout: Hong Kong.
We also answer a particularly tricksy question from our mailbag. If Chess had never been invented, how do we think it would be received today?
Quinns: I think it’s a phat trick.
Paul: You just made that up.
