Morgan Shanahan: “I was a child of the ’80s. I knew everything about the game before today. “

Sam Stryker: “This game is basically the same thing as a dinosaur to me. It lived and died before I was even born. All I know is, everyone who is older than me in the office seems to know what it is.”

Leo Epstein: “Duh. Best game of the ’90s.”

Brian Galindo: “All I know is that it was a competitive shopping game, like The Hunger Games but with a shopping theme, and that every girl I knew LOVED this game. Oh, also that it was a 3D board game — that I also know.”
