Episode 189 – Magic Jeopardy (and the Movie)

Magic JeopardyThis episode has it all – thrills, chills, suspense, controversy, a happy reunion and a heartfelt goodbye.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll yell at your mp3 player.

Well, maybe not all of that.  But most of it!  This episode sees the return of our disease-ridden rambler Brian!  Okay, so that’s a bit much, but whatever he’s back yay!  To celebrate being back, he’s got a brand new idea for the show – Magic Jeopardy!  With 30 questions across 6 categories, he’s going to put the other three dorks to the test!  Who will come out ahead?  And what sort of controversy will arise?  Let us know what you think of the Magic Jeopardy so we’ll know if we should bother doing it again.

After that, we answer another mess of emails and rules questions from our inbox, and one in particular catches our eye.  A couple episodes ago, Ben sent us a question about casting voice talents for a Magic cartoon, which we discussed briefly.  Ryan Gregersen went several steps beyond and sent us his ideas for the cast of a live-action Magic: the Gathering movie, complete with IMDB links!  So of course this discussion sidetracked us for a good long time while we looked up actors and kicked ideas around.  It was a lot of fun, we hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did.

And if you are at all interested in helping out with Extra Life as described at the beginning of the episode, my good friend Dustin’s donation page can be found below.  If you don’t want to help him out, then start your own drive and get people to donate to you!  All that matters is that you’re helping!

    Loved it. Jeopardy was awesome; definitely want to hear it in the future. I was yelling out answers and laughing the whole time.
    I also liked emails being after the main topic.

      Yeah, yeah… We all missed that somehow. It’s probably because we don’t really play with him.

        I swear when Dirk said “Cthulhu” I thought he was talking about Emrakul (which I was screaming at my headphones [not literally]) and not Marit Lage. Though they are both pretty much Cthulhu exactly. I mean, look at Wrath of Marit Lage’s flavor text.

    ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ would be fun also. But maybe too easy within MTG.

      Brian could come up with something. Or the listeners come up with the questions, and a guest host reads them. *wink*wink*
