Beers. Board games. Pop culture. And a little drunken philosophy.

Ep. 51: They Deleted the Tweet!

We got caught! Cheese-it! It’s the fuzz! (Just go with it; it’ll make sense in a second) Anyway, we did an episode on the run from the beer assassins come to exact revenge. We talk about Christmas decorations, writing utensils, and a crack cereal-mascot commando team.

Ep. 50: The Stillwater Retirement

It is our 50th episode. Absolutely crazy things have come this far. Thank you so much for helping us make this silly show so big and successful.

Ep. 43: Welcome to Cheese Month

Look…sometimes you look back at your rating system and realize all the rating systems you’ve come up with in the last month have something to do with cheese. It happens to the best of us. Diets are hard, y’all. Best to point it out early and move on. Luckily, we also managed to talk through an episode between our desperate pleading for cheddar. We hope you enjoy it more than we enjoy the cheese-deficient hell  that is existence.

Evil Twin Brewing’s C is for Cherry: We Dissect the Fun of games with entirely asymmetrical, random win objectives. Is the novelty helping or hurting?

Music: Tracks 2-8 of Return of the Soul

Ep. 40: The Scooby Snacks are Heroin

I already named an episode based off a bad hot dog pun…then Spencer did this rating system. Frankly, I’m at a loss. I’ve just been totally sabotaged. Let’s get this over with. The episode is pretty okay, I guess.

Blue Mountain Barrel House Series Dark Hollow: Imperial Stout Aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels: In Dissecting Our Fun, we’ve played Mountains of Madness and enjoyed it. We debate whether it’s really a Lovecraftian game at all, or if perhaps it is the best Lovecraftian board game.

Ep. 29: Drinking the Forms

Howdy everyone! Welcome back to The Mixed Six. Like Greek philosophers of old, join us as we stroll the gardens and parthenon, discussing the nature of truth and important topics of the day. But we’ll be more buzzed because our beer has more alcohol than that crappy B.C. wine.

Songs by Peatu from the album Memento Mori

Ep. 25: Belated October Oktoberfest

Welcome back everyone! We didn’t want to let October go by without celebrating Oktoberfest and thus, ironically, being two months late instead of one. Enjoy this themed episode of Oktoberfest brews!

Odell Brewing Co Oktoberfest Marzen Style Lager: In Dissecting Our Fun, Spencer and Caleb gamble their limited resources on who gets to talk first about the mechanic of bidding for turn order.

Bell’s Brewing Oktoberfest Beer: Steven Lee and Alex B. (and my MAD RHYMES) have concerns about movie theaters. The two hosts couldn’t have two more desperate opinions on the matter in Armchair Director.

Ep. 23: Mrs. Gas-Spewing Metal Orb

Choose the form of your destroyer.

The Destiny 2 servers were down for maintenance, so we managed to get a podcast out in-between fixes. If, like us, you have also been released from your virtual prison long enough to listen, we’d appreciate it if you checked out our Patreon before we jack back into the Playstation Network like the Lawnmower Man.

Narragansett’s Lovecraft The Temple: Fittingly for the beer, Brownie is concerned about drowning in Cthulhu games and other thematic gluts. A guy who wrote a zombie game in 2017 gives his opinion in Dissecting Our Fun.

Sun King Brewery King’s Reserve: In This Was a Mistake, we unpack the mistakes your job’s dress code is likely making.

Boulevard’s Dark Truth: Ask Mixed Six wants to know how to persuade people. Aside from paying $4 to have a question answered, we give additional advice.

Ep. 19: This Entire Episode Was the Mistake

I PROMISE YOU THIS IS EPISODE 19. We recorded this before realizing that we have to do a separate numbering system for the Patreon extras, so forgive our mislabeling. As you know, Producer Ross does not edit things.

Still high off the thrill of hitting our first Patreon benchmark, we made a terrible choice and decided to do an episode with beer of…questionable craft credentials. Hopefully the conversation isn’t dependent upon how our tastebuds are feeling. Listen to yourself and find out!

Anheuser Busch’s Natural Light: In Dissecting Our Fun, we jump back on that science game jam and play Evolution. It’s like Spore but not terrible!

Anheuser Busch’s Busch Light: Matt suggested we talk about our Top 3 2000’s pop songs; don’t mind if we do! We’re off to the Jukebox in Back.

Michelob Ultra: In Ask Mixed Six, Ben and Angie want to know how friendships change in the digital age.

Bud Light: In our 2nd Mixed Six Mock Draft, we staff the best fictional band we can out of the best fictional musicians.
