Highlighting the passion and love that gamers possess for their favorites, whether it be tabletop, video, pinball or any of the categories within. We discuss the origins of MGC, starting as Jagfest 2K1 a celebration of the Atari Jaguar, and highlights of guests, events, wrestling belts and the friends he’s made over the years, and the arrival of a big purple monkey.
