Questions:

  • David Carrol: Is there much of a competitive scene of any of these amazing games we play? (the way there is for video games)

  • Jesse Ferguson What does it take for you to get rid of a board game?
  • Jesse Ferguson: You’ve just walked out of the tattoo parlor with a brand new gaming-related tattoo. Where is it, and what does it look like?
