Apparently the Tylenol and Shower Cap were already in the suitcase when it was acquired.
We had 29 people come out for the Team Serious Invitational to battle some vintage to celebrate Hazard’s birthday for the 4th year in a row!

I believe the issue was brought up to Kevin and Steve and they had to fix the audio issue and re-upload the episode to Eternal Central. So if you download it again, it should be fine!

Yeah I asked Patrick and Matt for their lists yesterday but haven't heard from them. I think Matt picked up Assassin's Trophies at the store and Patrick played U/W/R Landstill because he comfortably played U/W Landstill last time but I believe he said the deck was not where he wanted it to be.
