Love to Play Along!

I love this show and it’s various pre Covid variations! I love how no matter the amount of “contestants” playing there’s still enough time to play along and try to guess the wild answers. So much fun to play on speakers when friends are over great conversation starters and lots of easy laughs!!! Please keep up the amazing work!!!! We love you Dave!!!!
