Errata

The infamous Cheese Canister game mentioned by Dave is Farkel, which does, in fact, have a Cheesehead Edition that comes in a FILM canister. I'm sure there are more goofs in there somewhere.

Listener Todd points out:

"Bazaar has been reprinted several times and the components on the Discovery edition below are pretty nice (though not "Goober" nice)"

 Let us know if (when?) you find one!
