After work one evening, fellow TA Shad invited me out to a dinner with a focused discussion on board games. Slightly interested, I decided to tag along. Although I wasn’t expecting to see Instructors Jay and Graeme, it wasn’t a surprise since they are definitely huge board game enthusiasts! After everyone went around the tables introducing themselves and food was ordered, the special guest introduced himself as Tom Felber. Although I did not know him before or the Spiel des Jahres beforehand, I most certainly will remember it now!
