#215: David Thompson


Multi-Deck System Games! Canadian content! Kevin Bacon! So many digressions in an episode packed with so much culture it couldn’t even fit in one of Vin Diesel’s muscle shirts. We do, however, focus on games long enough to rhetorically ask–with several stress patterns–of David Thompson: who is this guy? As a note, during the time of the taping of this episode, David Thompson released five more excellent board games. Oh, sorry, I type slowly, make that six.
