Wonderwall Wednesday

By | January 15, 2019

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.

Your time’s up.

Thanks for all your Poll of the Year 2018 votes! I will be totting them all up and and writing it all up across the next week (basically I wasn’t working this weekend, now I am) and we hope to bring you the results in about a week-and-a-half’s time.

Just one day left to vote!

In what people will surely come to suggest is the most important vote of a generation, the UKGS.C/BB Poll of the Year 2018 closes tomorrow (Friday) night. No sitting on the fence, now.

Results likely week beginning 20th Jan as I’ve recently discovered I don’t have this weekend free to write the results up. I have no idea what is winning, all the ballots have been immediately moved to a special folder, so I look forward to reading your comments in due course.

It’s the NTAs!

That’s right, it’s celebs pitching for your votes on Twitter season, and this year there’s a specific quiz show category, so everyone can get over the injustice of The Chase losing out to This Morning in the daytime category every year. Catchphrase, Pointless, 8/10CDC and A League of Their Own will fight it out for runners-up spot. Vote here if you want.

Although to be honest it just looks like the NTAs are copying the UKGameshows.com/Bother’s Bar Poll of the Year but let’s be honest industry people, what would you really want, a million quid and adulation of a wide audience or a Palme d’Or? I know, right?

You can vote here and lines close on Friday night so get a move on. Results will be slightly later than normal because I’ve just discovered I’m not free this weekend. It’s the waiting that makes it tense.
