This week Chris and Fletcher are alone again as they talk about rewriting the rules to games.

We're also taking the next two weeks off, but when we come back we'll be doing an epic 5 person drawi…
 
This week we're talking about tracking our play statistics and board game collections. What are the various ways we can track our plays? What is the value of doing so?
