Ha. I wrote this episode. Got the idea from playing it in the writers' room. Also got a very sore shoulder.
Wasn't there a rule that if you popped it (poked the circle before they undid the circle) then the victim could punch the other person twice instead of being punched?
And the seasons, they go round and round...
yeah I was annoyed by this resurgence of the game cuz people seem to have thrown out the "below the waist" part in many popular cases, which makes tricking people less of a challenge
