I’m strong to the finish, ’cause I eats me spinach*, I’m Bill the Podcaster Man!
*Seriously, I do. Raw even.
This week’s game is the 1983 Parker Brothers adventure POPEYE. While Olive Oil wears her hearts on her sleeve – and mostly just throws them at her beloved, Popeye is busy running from deck to deck on a ship trying to beat up Bluto/Brutus (which name you refer to Popeye’s nemesis by really depends on your age) because…reasons. Sure, the message that disagreements can be solved with your fists is probably troubling, but, the game is a decent romp. Grab a can of the green stuff (We mean spinach. We’re old school. No kale for us.) and climb aboard. Adventure, ahoy!
