Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Classic Cheapass Games With James Ernest (w/Creator)
Limited Capacity seats available

Prepare to be surprised as James Ernest pulls a random game (or two) from the dark corners of the Cheapass Games catalog and reads the rules again as if for the first time. It's obscure, it's old, and it's probably filled with funny violence.
