The Challenge:

Dave must find five games that are also meta-games for people who hate being bogged down by too many rules, people who will quite or grenade (pulling their own pin) ruining everyone else’s fun.

Dave's List

Stephen's Vote

Dictionary Thumbs Up
Great Dalmuti Thumbs Up

Dave goes 4 for 5. No crown this week, just the tiara!
