The most recent podcast of NPR's Ask Me Another had a contestant that described himself as a boardgame fan. The host asked him to name a boardgame that "nobody" had heard of and he mentioned Power Grid! Nobody indeed.

In fairness, the request to name a boardgame that "nobody" had heard of seems unfairly unanswerable. If the contestant names a game, then the contestant himself evidently has heard of it.

I'll bet "nobody" in the studio had heard of it.
