Like a book club, but with video games.

Next book club game: Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill

This game has recently come to our attention and we feel that it should be played as a book club game. You can find it at

This was developed for the SNES and Megadrive but wasn’t released until recently when a prototype was found and made available. Many political figures are caricatured throughout as Socks the Cat tries to warn the Clintons about a nuclear threat.

Click here to watch the recording of the stream I made of me playing the game.

We’ve just recorded podcast episode 74 and I plan to have it released within the week.

This episode was edited by Specs. Sorry for the lateness. We recorded a couple of months ago but then it didn’t get edited due to work/life commitments by me and Catsman.

Next podcast book-club game = Liero

Quake is over and it’s time for a real time knock-off of Worms. We’ll be playing Liero, which means “earthworm” in Finnish. It was originally for MSDOS and was playable by two people on the same keyboard. We’ll be playing this version: because it allows us to play online together. Our first session is planned for tomorrow (04/08/19) in the afternoon (BST starting some time after 15:00). There will be a stream and we’ll export it to youtube.

If you want to join in with us then join our discord at and we can give you the details. Be warned though, Woolyshambler told me that when he was in high school, he was the best Liero player in the world. He was quite drunk when he told me that, but he often is and I trust the guy.

We’ve recorded a podcast recently and it’ll be going up at some point. We don’t have a date set for recording the next one yet.


We’ll likely play Liero and other games at similar times on Sunday afternoons if anyone is interested in joining in future.
