Guests Joan Ford (Nerdist), Mike Levine (The Onion), Erika Iishi (Geek & Sundry), and Roger Barr (i-Mockery) join host Geoffrey Golden in a special episode recorded live at a lovely library several blocks away from San Diego Comic-Con 2016! The FOUR guests open THREE all-star packs – Dinosaurs Attack, Rad Dudes, and Skeleton Warriors – and the show was recorded with TWO different audio devices for ONE audience member. As they open the cards, they guess how much Tim Burton paid for the Dinosaurs Attacks license, the horrifying anatomy of the Rad Dudes, and a tricky hypothetical question involving a future-predicting magical floating skull. All on this oddly recorded episode of Two Packs a Week presented by Meltdown Comics!
