O-man, I just read this about an hour ago on the CBC website. Sad.
I was able to play one of the first sets that was brought into NL by a producer of our local CBC TV evening news show. He wanted to test it out since they were going to do a piece on this new game. He then accused me of cheating when I totally destroyed him, saying that I must have seen this game before and read all of the questions cards. He could not believe that I knew much of this sort of trivia. I did ............ and I still love playing the game. Great way to keep the old mind sharp as a tack.
He shall be missed.
