Videogames, board games, parlour games…you name it, we’ll ask questions about it, as two teams of three compete for…well, really just to say they won. They’re gamers after all!

Host Ben McKenzie (Dungeon Crawl, Late Night Letters and Numbers) will ask the questions and lawyer the rules, while Team Captain Lawrence Leung leads Leena van Deventer (game correspondent for Tech Talk Radio and writer for Tin Man Games) and Nicholas J Johnson (comedian and honest con man) into battle against opposing Team Captain Sarah Jones (comedian and ventriloquist) and her teammates Scott Edgar (Tripod) and Kirsty Adolphe (New Game Plus).
