So, we went on a bit of a Gmarket shopping spree lately and bought a whole lotta fun stuff to play with for our WTF segments. We saw this game right here – which actually comes in a three pack with two other games we didn’t show – and we knew we were going to have fun with it. So we did! It was great!

The game was a bit frustrating at first, and we actually took a lot longer to finish the game than the video lets on. We missed A LOT. Like, A LOT A LOT A LOT. It’s challenging, but frustrating. We almost went Flappy Birds on it and said EFF THIS GAME and rage quit. But we finally got a winner out of it. I’m sure next time we play it’ll go better, now that we kinda have a feel for how much pressure you gotta put down. It’ll definitely come with us on a road trip or two. LOSER GETS PUNISHMENTS THEY CAN’T AVOID!

Apologies to any Swedish people we’ve upset by not liking salted liquorish. We tried! Really, we tried! We know now, though, that, like McCol’s soda, it’s a taste that we just can’t get used to. I just don’t understand how liquorish is better salted. I know salted caramel and salted chocolate, or spiced chocolate, all are great, because they hit two different flavour types. But salted liquorish just…I don’t know. Can’t do it. Can’t do it! So now we save it for punishments. BUT MARTINA CHEATED! She definitely should not have spit it out on camera. That’s not part of the rules. I’ll make sure to put that in the rules next time…

Anyhow, click if you want to buy the game to play for yourself. There’s also a fun clicking game below called “Subscribe for More!” You win if you click it! You lose if you don’t.

    Ahhhh I love black licorice!! I’d eat the whole bag in one sitting probabaly, that looks like the really good, strong kind :P The red ones aren’t even licorice flavored haha

    I don’t blame you for spitting out that liquorice. Liquorice is nasty. And not the good kind of nasty.

  3. XD Simon when you started to sing your how-does-it-feel song my kitty came and wanted to get petted. Seems like your voice sets kitty’s in a want-to-get-petted mood.

    Ahh yes, as a young and naive tourist of Holland, I got some black candy that I thought was chocolate..or grape flavor. You can imagine my horror as I tasted that black licorice…just no. I guess licorice is good for you but..no!

  5. Oh, Martina. I feel for you. Black licorice is the devil’s candy… But even with those expressions of disgust, you were still adorable with your pink flowers and braids and cute top. ^^

    Funny thing is, I don’t like black licorice, but I like things that are black licorice flavored, like jelly beans or taffy. Also, I love your alternate spelling of “liquorish” so much that I think I’m going to switch to spelling it that way. Did autocorrect attack? Or is that how you Canadians spell it?

    Nice shirt Simon! Liberty In North Korea!

  9. I would always prefer salted liquorice and never really liked these red liquorice. Germany is kind of splitted, in the north(where i’m from) the people eat more (salted) liquorice and in the south they eat more Weisswurst(white sausage).
    Our taste is manipulated since early childhood through our parents and environment, because I would never ever touch a root beer again ;)

    Martina you better appreciate that salted liquorish, I’m in Japan and haven’t got any for months!!
    Just kidding… ;D I know that many hate it and it’s ok, mostly just funny. haha (soon I’m back in Finland and can taste that delicious salted liquorish again omnomnom)

  11. I know how you feel, Martina! I don’t like licorice either! The game is cute :3

    Chortle I thought it was a soju drinking noodle game in a reto 60′ flower swim cap …..

    I am from Sweden and still don’t understand why people like liquorish, especially salty liquorish…. My fiance like the stuff and try to get me to eat it as often as possible…

    I have to force myself daily not to go on Gmarket. Or else I will become a hobo. But, a hobo with lots of cool things.

    Hobo swag.

  15. i like chrysanthemum tea, whats so bad about it? it tastes great especially when its hot.

  16. -Real- “salted” liquorice is from Finland, and it’s called salmiakki. It tastes like the tears of young children who have had their puppies dissected in front of them. … But really, it’s horrifying. You guys got some before, I think. It’s not exactly salted, it has a lovely bit of ammonium chloride on it instead. The Swedish name for it is almost the same as the Finnish, because the Finns ( and Norwegians and the Dutch ) started manufacturing it as candy first. It’s taken from the Latin for “ammonium chloride” ( Sal ammoniac ), but is Finn-ified as “salmiakki”.

    Apparently playing basketball with Nigerians in Canada does not up your game. Simon should have dominated…for shame. ;) As for the black licorice, we all know that is made from the tears of those who have lost at kai bai bo.

  19. Black licorice is SO gross. I usually give things chances. Like, I used to never like squid, but I do now. Black licorice is basically on THE blacklist (heheheh) of foods I just don’t eat. Ever.

  20. {{|└(>o< )┘|}} I could almost taste the licorice when I saw Martina eating it. Don't feel bad guys I don't like it either T____T

  21. Kirsten Bohn

    omg..want this. Setting up Gmarket account ASAP…..

  22. Ruiting Yu

    I WANT THIS THING SO BADLY AHH i want to play it too it looks so fun ;-;

  23. lumierenoire

    Oh man, it’s like those school carnival games that just never work out. o.o Salted licorice… That’s… different…..

  24. When you said ‘shooter’ I definitely thought it was alcohol and I was very concerned that it was going to be takoyaki flavored alcohol…
