After a bit of break to deal with that little thing called ‘real life’, we are back for episode 11 of the +3 To Geekdom podcast….and it’s a bit of a bumper episode!
To kick things off, we share our thoughts on Marvel Studios latest cinematic blockbuster in Captain America: Civil War and then head into our main topic for the month: family friendly board and table top games including the likes of Tsuro, King of Tokyo, Diamonsters, UNO (the destroyer of friendships) and more!
Following on from the board game talk, we move on to games of the video variety as we gush over Blizzard’s brand new IP, the team based first person shooter Overwatch! Not content with all of that, ‘Shithouse Theatre’ returns from its long hiatus as we discuss the Mary Harron directed cult movie classic “American Psycho”. Were we impressed by the silian rail font on Patrick Bateman’s bone coloured business card? To find out the answer to this burning question and our monthly Q&A, you’ll have to tune in to find out!
We have a stack of show notes for you this month!
