Flip the Table has returned...with a bad case of Pac-Man Fever! We're joined by Bangor City Councilor Gibran Graham as we revisit the Pac-Man board game universe with this Milton Bradley classic. Players take on one of four colored Pac-Men (Pac-Mans? Pac-Mani?) as they race to munch marbles and earn points. Using a special brand of roll-and-move necromancy, players also send ghosts to gobble opponents and steal their marbles away from them. Does this game faithfully recreate the arcade phenomenon, or does playing it feel like swallowing a key? Kick off the new year with us as we find out!

Indeed. Somehow when they cover games I had as a kid I always get a certain buzz to it. Great start to the new year.

Prof. Laserbooks and I were deeply into it for a while, along with contributor Ben Turner. We all had VEKN numbers and everything!

So then I take it you don't play anymore?
I am the Prince of Wilkes Barre PA and try to do demos at the local stores.

Once in a great while we'll play for nostalgia, but we've been out of the tournament scene since, oh, mid to late 2000's?

The Prof. and Ben are much more practiced and finely tuned players than I am. I was always an "irresponsible bleeder."

Ah yes, "irresponsible bleeder". Could have been worse you could have been a stealth cheese bleeder.
