List of episodes

"Big Mittens Game" is the one hundredth episode of season two of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on March 24, 2019.

Description

Rick Picklesmith invites our hosts into the press box for a Mittens game between the Hogsface Poisoned Blades and the orcs of the Dark Lord.

Summary

The episode is broadcasting from the big Mittens exhibition game. Arnie and Chunt are in the press booth with Foonish sportscaster Rick Picklesmith, and much of the episode is play by play and color commentary.

The teams are the Hogsface Poisoned Blades, vs a team fielded by the Dark Lord, comprised of a mixture of orcs and some of the greatest Mittens players to ever play the game, who the Dark Lord has brought on as ringers. After six days they’re approaching half time, and the score is Hogsface 6, DLOrcs 2103.

Usidore provides sideline commentary. Players include Ooze, Daphne, Pizza Skull, Squibbert, and Flower, who is the flower that is carried down the pitch.

Arnie wanders through the press area and also catches audio of Axelrod ReMax and Chamblin Bunnycuddle providing commentary for another broadcast.

Rick introduces Mysterious Anonymous, the entity responsible for building the Hogsface stadium and buying the Hogsface team. It is Baron Ragoon who attempts to dramatically reveal The Dark Lord’s link to Mysterious Anonymous to the Mittens fans listening, but once again the Baron does not instil the dramatic shock he was seeking.

Halftime is called and Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore join the team in the Vermilion Minotaur, which is being used as a locker room. Arnie tries to give a rousing sports movie-type speech but the message is muddled by his additional plan for all assembled to escape through a tunnel the trio have been digging for the last week.

Unfortunately Arnie has had a hot mic through the speeches, and Rick Picklesmith informs him his plans have been broadcast widely including to the Baron.

As Orcs arrive to storm the Vermilion Minotaur, the Baron says that they don’t need Arnie to complete their plans, but if he flees the Dark Lord’s forces will exterminate the remaining inhabitants of Hogsface. As the orcs break down the doors, Arnie surrenders.
