The Missing Monkey #2.07 – Smegging Pig’s Farm

Bonjour Mes Amis!

So we’re here with episode 7 and it’s time to take things old school with questions, answers, points and forfeits. The forfeits we’ve chosen randomly this time do include beatings, tar-and-feathering and a fair dose of dunking, though we don’t actually tell the contestants who got what until after the recording was finished and we sent them on their way to what they thought was home.

Oh, and if anyone finds a knife wielding monkey while out on their travels, please post it back to the address listed on it’s collar. There is a reward, though we won’t be telling you what it is or who it will be going to. Thank you.

Ep 2-07 Players small

Players this week are Lee Houldsworth, Ash McColvin Dodsworth and Mark Furness.

Round 1 Mini-subjects are Doctors, Money and Food and Drink.

Round 2 Specialist subjects are

The Diablo Games
80’s Kids Cartoons

The Missing Monkey #2.04 – The Bookworm, The Pelly and Me

And so for their triumphant return, the Bookworm vs the Monkey showdown of the century! Though we’re not going to tell you which century. Probably somewhere around the 14th or 15th century looking at the weapons they’ve brought.

But I digress.

Tonight’s short subjects are Vampires, The Long arm of the Law and Science and Technology.

The Radio Bookworm crew face the Monkey

Playing tonight we have the crew from the Bookworm radio podcast from Starburst Magazine, or if you want to go by name we have Del, Russ Smith and Si Lloyd.

Their specialist subjects (cunningly selected, researched and written, (even about the big umbrella thingy) were :
Roald Dahl
James Bond
and
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I hope you enjoy it, I hope you consider becoming a Patron of the show and I hope you find the time to share this far and wide. Tell people, tell everyone. But for now, just enjoy. :)

The Missing Monkey #2.02 – Man, Don’t Get Irritated

Bonjour, Mes Amis!

So we’re back again and this time we’re trying a new thing with round 1. Instead of 15 questions on any subject under the sun we are experimenting with splitting it up into 3 loosely connected subjects, in this case we will be tackling the brains of the players on questions about Geography, Weapons and The Periodic Table. See how they do and how well you do against them.

In case you were not aware, we are also launching a Patreon appeal to try and raise funds to make the Missing Monkey as big and as wonderful as we can. We will be bringing you content for as long as we possibly can for free but it would be wonderful if you would consider becoming a Patron, even if only for a minimum amount. Every little bit helps. You can find the Patron at http://www.patreon.com/themissingmonkey and it would be marvelous if you took a glance.

This weeks players are :
Aliss McGregor, Tracey Kerr and George Wilkinson

Ep 2-02 Players small

The specialist subjects for this week are Buffy Villains, Eddie Izzard Stand-Up and The Dresden Files.
How well do you do?

Sit back, Enjoy and once you have a second, please share as far and wide as you can.

Thank you, oh so very much.
