Two Nerdy Chihuahuas in one week?  You must've been extra good.  This time, Chad talks Tsuro, King of Tokyo and Tapple.  

Chad geeks out on more board games.

Apologies in advance for the sound quality on this episode.  Contrary to what you might think, we didn't actually record this over the phone.  We appear to have been having equipment issues.  We'll try to get it fixed for the next episode.  On this show, we discuss "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Sharknado", share in the joys of homework, Scott hates on Ashton and we see the return of the Bieber.
