PAX East 2015: Trivia!

DRULcast correspondent and common guest of the podcast, AcE, asked PAX East 2015 attendees a variety of questions to determine their gaming knowledge level. Some did well, others were questionable…

Only 100 backscratchers were made, and we don’t plan on making anymore. If you won, you are 1 of 100 people in the entire world to own a DRULcast Backscratcher! Congratulations!

Winners, please tweet us a pic showing how you use your exclusive DRULcast Backscratcher Collectible 🙂
