Joel can now say, "been there, done that and bought a T-shirt from Essen!" and he was joined by two friends, and they remained friends, in their adventures through the halls of Spiel. Here is a 60 minute loaddown of what they got up too. Trust me when I say, they could have recorded for hours.

They talk about lots of games they played and bought, people the meet and a whole lot more. 

Big thanks go to the co-host of the show Lewis Jones and Micheal Verde for being on the show, maybe you will hear more from them in the future.
