Episode 359 – The Garfest Report f/ Daniel Kibblesmith

What, did y’all think we were playin’? Well, we weren’t. This past weekend, we joined up with the creator of Garfbert, Daniel Kibblesmith, to attend the 2017 Garfield Gathering Collectors Convention in Asheville, NC. Then we all got together at Matt’s house afterward for our post-show report and to attempt to play a Garfield board game Daniel bought. Hear us break down all the ins and outs of the convention while trying to figure out this weird game from 1981!

The Rundown:
