We get into a discussion about the character Gloppy and if he will ever get his life together. Other topics include, the story of Chilly Tee and The Noid! Planet Fitness, Is Candy Land really a game? What happened to the animation in this video? Childrens Palace Video Toy Chest, Candy Land is a very dark place and would you just get it together Gloppy?!?!

    On Episode 16 of Matt and Ryan Get Board our two host decide to switch things up and go to the movies! This week we saw the film Battleship, yes based off of the board game. If you’re wondering why we don’t live in a world filled with board game films, well this might be Exhibit A. Ryan’s one word review was “Ughhhhhh” especially when he found out that the first 20 minutes of the plot is devoted to a chicken burrito. Once again hollywood tries to get Matt to fall in love with Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) again, but it doesn’t work out so well this time. We are also introduced to the acting debut of Rihanna, who seems to be really angry either by the plot or the lines she is given to say. We discuss how little of screen time Liam Neeson had and how the aliens are very similar looking to Transformers. We talk about how this is basically one big love letter to the military filled with cyborg men, AC/DC filled montages and old Vets coming to save the day.

Topics we discuss during this episode include, having that one kid in your class who loved horses, the social media team behind Totino’s Pizza and how Ryan’s wife doesn’t remember getting this game as a gift or even playing it. We also try and answer questions like are horses just as terrible as dolphins? How sad is it that this game has a one player feature? Who are all these horse games being marketed too? Saddle up for this one, the game is a dud but the conversation was great.
