Other items discussed in the show:
Mom and Dad recommend:
Allison recommends the game “trash can football,” for which there is no link, and no Internet presence, that’s how awesome it is.
Dan recommends a game called Ho Ho. It combines learning and plummeting from terrifying heights. Also, not online.
