Hello all!

Did anyone else catch the piece on Boardgaming that Mo Rocca did this weekend on CBS Sunday Morning? I thought is was VERY well done and included some great interviews with some folks that study Gaming and Game Theory and are avid Gamers as well as some gratuitous shots of Geeks at Gencon (which made me want to go all the more!). They talked a lot about how Euros are so much more involved than the mainstream of Milton Bradley Family Games we all have stuffed in our collective attics.

I thought is was a great piece and certainly presented our Hobby is a very good light!

I found this link from April. Maybe not the same segment, but still good.

Decent piece.

Though Mo Rocca is just as much of an unfunny ass on CBS as he is on Wait Wait Don't Tell me.

No fair! They're using brains against us! We removed our brains to make room for guns and explosives!

Scott Nicholson (who is interviewed for the segment) had a thread on this back when it was originally airing.
