In this episode, we celebrate the life of Jack Vasel. We also meet someone who was helped in her time of need, all because this little boy's memory has been able to live on. It's a reminder of how far board gamers reach out to take care of our own, which of course, is something to behold.

Episode 1 - MATH IS NOT A MONSTER
