News & Notes
Congratulations to designer Donald Vaccarino and publisher Rio Grande Games for winning this year's award. The innovative deck-designing card game has quickly become a favorite for players across the world.
We take our traditional Summer break after this show. In place of a regular episode in two weeks, stay tuned for Scribbler #4, a puzzle sent down through the RSS feed as a pdf document. Solve the puzzle and you could win one of two prizes: Race for the Galaxy or Airships.
