Don’t forget that the Poll of the Year 2018 LIVE RESULTS is tomorrow night from 9pm. Apparently there might be other awards shows on at the same time. You know The Chase is going to win the quiz NTA, so you might as well watch us instead.

Anyway, thanks to John for alerting us to this:

Coming February

I don’t know whether it will be a hit or not, but I’m actually more interested now I’ve seen bits of it and it looks like the sort of thing you’d like to have a go at. I can’t wait for the official Lego tie-in.

You’re in the Army now

For some reason I found myself pondering Combat with Emlyn Hughes this morning. But there’s seemingly no footage of that on Youtube so here’s the next best thing, an episode of One Man Army with Myke Hawke which was on US Discovery almost a decade ago and I thought was quite good, but that has seemingly been lost to the mists of time.

If you’re bored tomorrow night, Friend of the Bar and sometime Game Night audience member Ashley Muncaster (aka Ash the Bash) will be playing his own Twitch-chat interactivity enabled version of the Wonderwall from Winning Lines. That’s Wednesday 8pm on Twitch, do have a look. Unfortunately I can’t make it, but we’re very much hoping to do a Bother’s Bar Plays Badly of it in the near future.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Animal Adventure Hour

Clearly, the next big thing is animal escape rooms.

His entire channel seems incredible for this sort of thing.

As someone who used to love those old documentaries like Bird Brain of Britain and things with squirrel assault courses I find this sort of fascinating. Even if the puzzles are not what you’d call difficult.

This came up on Twitter the other day:

Incredible. If ethically questionable.

And don’t forget we’re currently watching The Mole.

TV’s Alex Macmillan has set up a Fantasy Video Games Draft League Thing for BB punters, basically you pick games and hope they get good Metacritics. I’m not sure how you join the league, and Alex is in charge of it and will determine when the draft is and whatever, but I will be playing.

It’s a public league but I’m not sure how you join it, I got an invite. You can view it here.

EDIT: DM UndeniablyAlex on Twitter for an invite.
