Someone was holding up a sign for SW for Spiel des Jahres and it made ESPN's College Gameday twice... Scratch that... Three times.

That's great. How many people around you were scratching their heads over your sign?

Well played! I was watching this morning (VT Alum myself) and couldn't believe I saw "Spiel des Jahres" on your sign next to Kirk's head.

Had to get a shot of it:

It’s the designer himself. I was one of the playtesters.

Well advertised. I didn't know about it, but now I have my preorder in from Miniature Market.

What grabbed my attention was the camera focused on "Spiel des Jahres", then I saw Santa's Workshop and Rio Grande Games and knew I needed it for our annual Christmas Eve party.

Awesome... Thanks. I hope you like it well enough to break it out in the middle of summer as well!

Had a few people ask me what it meant. One guy stopped me to take a picture with the sign because he wanted to send it to his friend in Germany. Most people seemed utterly confused when I explained it was a board game.

Gave you a thumb's up for getting it on College GameDay, even though you're a Hokie fan.

Go Cuse!
