This episode, we play perhaps the most popular and well-known game we've ever reviewed on Flip the Table...it's Mall Madness! In the electronic version of this game, players take the role of shopping-obsessed teenagers racing to buy arbitrarily priced retail goods, such as sunglasses, t-shirts, and pets (on clearance, if possible). Need energy? Stop at the movie theater for a quick meal. Then, send your friend to the rest room to delay their progress. Has this electronic monument to mall culture stood the test of time, or is this just another roll-and-mover with fancy window dressing? Plus; Professor Laserbooks guides us through a Battle of Wits where we plumb the depths of consumer fads. Check it out! Seriously!!!

As you can see from our Twitter conversation, we really enjoyed ourselves with this one.

Also, you guys need to consider making the T-shirt: "Flip the Table's Battle of Wits: Destroying your faith in humanity since 2011"

Ever since your Robocop episode whenever the BotW involves ridiculously priced items I can't help but hear "I'd buy that for a dollar". Damn you diamond-studded Furby!

I don't know how many times it has happened to me when I go to the mall: I take my purchase to the counter, whip out the old card, clerk runs the card, then the item disappears from the counter because they're out of stock. Hate when that happens!
