That's a lot of good stuff. Thisconversations a lot of good stuff. Let's hop on into it with Chrissy andAnthony. And for someone who's not familiar with social lasts, let's hear yourelevator pitch. So social lasts is in entertainment, Trivia Card game. Wewe are focused on providing trend sitting, trend setting entertainment. We started backin two thousand and seventeen what our first game called Password to the hood,and that game is based primarily on black culture. So you'll see elements ofrap hip hop, you'll see some politics and sports and entertainment as well.So that's not a company. Initially started we wanted to put out a TRIBUTAcard game, so we came out with a long list of names to potentiallyname the game and then we set them on pass quo too, hood,and then we came up with a name, social lab. So good deal.What were some of the other names that you you workshopped anymore? Ican't tell you, man. They probably were jenking. What's he had anidea about hood. Maybe we just get playing around, but I don't knowexactly. Then get like hood was probably kind of like to stay, orwe were like take it to the hood because we're doing yeah, probably deleteit to facts. I think I had them like a Nix Cel phile,so it's probably going I could. Why A card game? Why? Whywas that the the route you went with? Because I think this is a superinteresting and needed concept. But was...

...was it always that you wanted todo a card game, or did you kind of think about some other waysto maybe get a game like this together. So No, it the car gamewas pretty much the initial plan. So, and I say this onevery podcast, I'm like what I would call myself a serial entrepreneur. So, you know, I'll just be ramly walking, I'll wake up and Ihave an idea. So if I think is worth while, you know,following up on the Alice, you know, you know, throw that the walland see the stick. So, like I said, the idea forthe car game first came first and then before I even invested a lot oftime, I said, Hey, man, you know, this isn't going towork unless I have a real catchy name that can sell itself. Sothat's how I started, you know, just a dream. I woke up, Oh, you know, on a card game and focus don't get aname. And as we thought more about it, I mean like, youknow card games or something that I think there's staples that everyone has in theirhousehold. Is always like maybe one or three games that every household has.So whenever you have like a kick back or holiday time and you have friendsand family over, you know everybody's always going to want to play something tojust kind of keep entertainment and things flowing. So we knew that that was somethingthat was a possibility for us to tap into you and we knew thatwe had a good opportunity of like really taking on some of that market basedoff of the product that we had, because we knew it was going tobe catchy. Once he came up with the idea of the name, weknew he had something absolutely and I also thank you for keeping the rules notto complex. I nothing, I think, is more frustrating than opening up acard Gamer aboard game and it's like, you know, a full like bookletof rules that you have to yeah, I'm just like, let's hearyous.A lot of times when we play, nine times out of ten there's somekind of alcoholic beverages flowing in the room with adults. Make sure it'sa dolt M of course. You know you don't want, you don't havetime to read through all of these instructions exactly. So can you kind oftake us through? Then you have the idea from taking the idea and turningthat into a card Gat. What was that process like? So the theprocess really started with coming up with enough content. So we try to turnout or produce as many questions as we could. So you might have hadover full and four hundred, four hundred, five hundred plus questions. And thenwe said, okay, well, we need like, you know,a hundred, you know, questions for the first game, right. Sowe just kept on doing process elimination. You know, is this good enoughfor the first product? Is is good enough for the first game? Andthen once we felt like we had a good number of good number of questions, then I actually started doing the research in terms of, you know,finding a manufacturer and pretty the printed games and and I'm pretty good and Photoshop. So started working on the design work and things in that nature. Sothat's how it all started. Fantastic, fantastic. Did you again? Didyou? Did you have like several different kind of prototypes you went through withthe design, because I think, I mean, first of all, I'mvery impressed by anyone that's good at at Photoshop. So already already I'm justlike it's nice, but yeah, walks through that now then what they didback in two thousand and seventeen when we first launched him. So initially hada lot of Anthony's original like artwork at things that he learned how to doand Photoshop. And then, as the years went on, we started actuallyOh, we took pictures. So, if you notice on the boxes,those are actual houses or those are actual apartment complex. Has Some in Charlestonand what was the other two? In Charlotte, right, yeah, wherewe decided to actually go into neighborhoods and take actual photos of homes. Yeah, so we kind of yeah, we...

...stepped it up a notch, definitelyfrom our knidge original artwork. It was very basic in the beginning. Arethe the people who live in those homes? Are they like your biggest supporters?Then are they promoting it? They're like, Hey, this is thisis our house, which is they probably wouldn't even yeah, they wouldn't know. They wouldn't pick up on it. Didn't even know. Okay, okay, what bad? And Yeah, once you take yeah, we put it'skind of put a layer of color, color over the yeah, okay,okay, yeah, good. It could be secretly famous. I like it. Obviously, two thousand and twenty. Well, well, different than thelast year's with the pandemic going on, and you mentioned like family gatherings,things like that. We're in a lot of states. That's kind of beenlike hey, let's not do that, let's hold off on that for alittle bit. So how have you continued marketing the game in a time whengetting together with P pull is not an easy, err as easy as itnormally might be? Yeah, to be honest, our games, they reallytaken off during the pandemic. I mean we were already doing well, butwe started seeing uptick in ourselves early March and in the beginning, and Anthonycouldn't really figure out what was happening because it was kind of like our Christmascells were coming in. You know, holiday time will normally see it upticking cells. But what we noticed is a lot of people started playing ourgames virtually. You're using zoom, they're using hangouts there. I guess someof those other platforms that people use are for virtual purposes, but a lotof people are starting to play our games virtually. We even had someone froma corporation. They tagged us they were playing our game within their employee resourcegroup. It was a group of women and they were playing our passport tothe Hood, volume to the trap addition. So we were just like Oh wow, that's so cool, you know, just to actually see these women playingand there in the work setting. So I just think that people,for we're just looking for opportunities to do something different, you know, totry to how do we engage you? You know we're all working from home. How do we still have people engage and have a good time and tryto like take a moment, take a step back and not think about everythingthat's happening in two thousand and twenty, because we know it's been rough.So it's definitely been awesome to try to bring some laughter into people work settings, on zoom calls and just within people's families in general during the pandemic.Yeah, I think that speaks to the resiliency to of the the gaming communityas a whole. is like, if it's a good game, like you'llfind a way to play. You will. It's not a hundred percent the wayit was designed to be, like they'll make it happen. Sure,you've been in business now since two thousand and seventeen. What something that's surprisedyou about running a business? You know, so initially, whenever we started thegame in two thousand and seventeen, we didn't have our face attached toit at all. Social Labs, we were selling games solely based off ofthe name and not having a face with it. So not saying that Iwas, quote unquote, surprised, but I was impressed with how well thegame was selling without us like really doing a lot of marketing and pushing itout there. You know, we really didn't put a lot of marketing dollarsinto it in the beginning. We just wanted to test it out and trulysee how was the name going to work, you know, or people going tobe captured by the name and want to like just jump on board andpurchase, and honestly they did. You know, people, they are infatuated, I think, with urban culture or, I think, the Word Hood.I think it was just some people say, what is this about,and it just made them want to click on it and like purchase the game. So I think a part of that I was kind of surprised about that. How will we did without even having our name attached to it and withouthaving to really truly push it on our individual side. Fantastic. And forpeople listening who maybe haven't checked out the Games yet, can you give uskind of a quick quick walk through of...

...of each game? Password to theHood and volume one, two and three. They all cover, you know,things black culture. So you see elements of some of the same questionsthroughout each game. But Password to the hood volume two is trap addition.So you'll see more material there that is more related to, you know,things that you would experience in a trap and the trap house, like sometype of drug activity or things that might occur to you if you happen toget in trouble while being in the trap house, by getting locked up andare going to jail. So you see things that nature. For that Virginfor past. Put to the hood volume three feds watching. You'll see alot of material that's more still related to police activity, being engaged with thewith the feds, like being watched by the feds. See, you'll seea lot of material there. So the categories in the game or of courseyou know trap, you have fed watch and you have history, lifestyle,entertainment. So we tried to cover it a whole spectrum. So like thingsthat you will see in movies, TV shows, just current events, youwill see that stuff throughout the game and our other two games that we produced. Story of my life. So the story of my life is a triviagame for women. And that game came about one day whenever I was atwork, a lady complimented me on my hair and when she was complimenting meon my hair, she reaches out and she grabs my braves, and thatis like a huge stereotype. Everyone knows you never touch your black woman's hair, and so I was so upset. I come home and I'm like,I can't believe like she grabbed, she touched my hair, like she couldhave just said it was nice. I why she touched my hair, andso I was like, you know what, I'm gonna make a game about this. And so initially I started thinking of what are like the weird awkwardmoments that black women have, and then so, as you start coming upwith content and thinking about it more, I'm like, well, no,I want to do this for all women, because we all have our awkward moment. So, you know, story of my life is just something thatall women should be able to relate to. We're going to talk about your coworker that you can't stand, or the boss that you just wish wouldgo away, or what girlfriend don't you take advice from? You know,the one always wants to give advice but she never takes her own or justdating like random dating story. So that's really what that game involves in.Our latest game is called Celeb said, so that is quotes of the richand famous. This one talks about, you know, all pop culture,anything you've heard of, celebrity say. Everyone knows Kanye. He has somepretty memorable moments where you said some crazy quotes. So we have a lot. We have Kanye in there, Kevin Hart, we have as a slavisdebating, while I drawing a blink on his name right now. Yeeah,Arnold Schwartzenegger. So just a lot of catchy phrases that you made here ona movie you may have just seen on TV or celebrity and rapper someone hassaid. So you know something in our household we always do any time wehave an opportunity to like crack a joke about something, will do it ifwe can like make it a joke where we quote a movie or something.So we just thought that that was something pretty cool that we could really bringto people's households. It's funny you mentioned Arnold Schwartzenegger because the last time wewere playing he came up Vista. Maybe came up. It was misattributed.The person did not know who it was. To be fair, because my girlfriend'ssister who's eighteen, so maybe maybe arnold is a little before her time, but she was like, I don't even know who that is at all. Like my mind. We had to stop. So I had to livethe room and I come up. You bring that up, because one thingthat me and Anthony noticed when you play with people, it depends on theirgeneration, like what people are going to say for certain things. So likea lot of the majority rules that we...

...have in our card games depending onthe a dreams. You know, you'll have people fighting all day about who'sthe better basketball player. Is it Jordan or is it Lebron, or who'sthe better rb group, you know. So that's one thing that we lovebecause it brings like a little banter back and forth between the Group of friendsthat may be playing, depending on the age drained. Absolutely. Okay,I have I have a right one other follow up question of that, butbefore I forget, I saw this question today and when you mentioned basketball,I have to see if you have a good answer for this. Is therean NBA player that you always forget about and then the season starts and you'relike, oh, yeah, they're still in the NBA, not here.Well, not that I forget about them, I think I forget what team they'reon if everyone's going, because they're always getting traded here. So Isay something. I'll say something like wait, I thought he was I thought hewas like on on the warriors, and he's like day, he's beengone from there like two years. Like I could confuse like if I were, if I like you and at the time, if you were like reallyballing out, that's the team I want to remember you on. I don'twant to see you like go to another team. Yeah, because these traderreal crazy now. Day's like, for example, I think when Danny Greenrecent gut trade, he can get in trade like three times. So likebefore you say you got traded like three times. I was like it's crazy. Yeah, and in my heart, Danny Green, he should have juststayed on the spurs and he was killing it, you know. I meanI know he did it, but in my mind that's where I want tokeep him at, even though I know he went to the Lakers. Ijust see they like that's where he is. I hope he doesn't go to theplaces before. I hope he's just like relaxing at home. It's like, look, I'll you know, I'll report to camp like a week before, but I'm not going to make all these these stops along the way.Definitely love basketball. We're really did basketball people in our house. So we'reso excited it and we don't have to go through that. Does it onlyfour months bank gap that break? Yeah, we didn't have to do that thisterm because the code. So being out in Charlotte. Then, arey'all Hornets fans? A podcast is yeah, watches horns. I mean, Iwill say, you know, whenever we go to the Mornings Games,we are making sure some of our favorite players are the opponents we're going tosee you. We're panthers fans as well as Gold Panthers, so wonderful someone. No, Cam Newton doesn't play for US anymore. Right, I doknow that. Yes, yeah, I am aware. Yeah, I justthere was there was someone else that was like that. Not It wasn't cabin, it wasn't Tom Brady, but it was someone along like those levels wheresomeone was just like, Oh, I didn't know they were on this teamand drawn a blank on who it was and I was just like come on, like that's that's an obvious one, but I don't know. Yeah,I'm with you on the NBA. I like to think I'm paying attention.But then the name that triggered this with Garrett Temple, who is on myChicago Bulls, who I have admittedly, kept less in touch with since movingoutside of Chicago and now I live in Austin. So the birds are kindof, yeah, you know, the de facto team, just because they'rethe closest one here in the the G League team is in Austin, andI was just kind of like looking at the Bulls roster and I'm like,Oh yeah, they signed Garrett Temple a few weeks ago and I had totallyforgotten he was even still playing. So major computer. Normally the trades,the trades out know about or you know. Normally like you, you're all stars, are superstars, you know, kind of like your people who arerunning for like six man, but if you're like a tent ten string player, I don't no one with the conversation...

...if we're talking about the topics.But the reason why I should is because normally you know people who are likebench players, like third string. You don't really hear. It doesn't makethe news when they get traded. You know they don't. They don't makemoves. There's not a's not in the press. You don't know they gettraded. You know, of course, like if you get like a LebronJames or a D or James Harden, that's going to be all over.You know the news, but you know you're like a you know, likea no, I mean like roll. I don't call them nobodies, butyou've you like a role player that you know on a certain level. Yea, I was like two points a game. You know it's not gonna be alot of conversation or yeah, I'd still I'd still love to be arole player in the NBA that I'll make millions to sit on the end ofthe bench, Number Fifteen, at the bottom of the bottom, and I'lltake one those ten. They have me up. So I'm yeah, man, I just want to talk NBI for for the rest of us. Yeah, we sort. Oh, he's always secretly wanted to be a sports analyst. He would still love that. He would be in heaven if you guysdid a segment like there is in my blood man, because I you know, Steven Naismith, Steven N Smith, went to my went to my college. So yeah, number one analysts on TV, so excellent. Do youhave a favorite Steven asmith moment? All of them. I mean, that'sfair. That is fair. The thing I like about Steven Nasmith is ishis is his voice. So the reason why few people are so drawn tohim because, like you know, a lot of people might say he's aggravatingstuff like that and don't like his voice. But you want, you will remember, you will watch and he I feel like he has the type ofvoice and he communicates in a fashion where you always want to watch, eventhough you might have some things that you might you might not particularly care about, but you watch. I don't have anything bad to say about it.And you know, I think he's I think he's the best one, thebest analysts on TV. So I always like a tune in. One thingto kind of bother me. People started kind of a taking shots at hissalary when they laid off a lot of people espn, and then, youknow, he came out and made the clear to hey, the reason whyI wasn't laid off is because I bring revenue to the company. Like youknow, if if he wasn't on certain segments, a lot of people wouldn'twatch. Yeah, I remember that happening and I was like no, heis. He has made his way and earned this and I agree, like, I mean, I could probably only name maybe a handful of ESPN folksthat are still there and Stephen is definitely on the list and I agree,like I'll if I hear him from the other room, I'm like, I'mcoming on, I want to hear what you have to kind of like theword. You know, a lot of people have something to say negative aboutme where there, but when he has a fight, you're going to watchthe fight is well, now I feel like we can do maybe a rapidfire sports segment, so we're not fully alienating everyone, but we're still we'restill letting you get your analyst hat on here. So what do you wantto do? Mba, NFL, MLB, hockey in the NBA? Yeah,I don't watch. I don't watch a lot of you know baseball's Ilove baseball, but to me baseball is like they just kind of sit inone spots wait to wait for see HAP to be to the game. Yeahsto me. I I like I like to actually slayed that baseball Mor thankind of watch it. So, you know, one of those things.But it definitely NBA NFL. I can definitely, you know, speak tellyou. Let's run through your MBA. Who Do you think is? IsA team that didn't make the playoffs last air and each conference that I'll makeit this year. I always like these underdog stories right now, because youhad all these trades that happened. So...

I can't really say who. Idon't know. Maybe Atlanta, Atlanta powers, you know, maybe the Lanta hawksthat you know. But, like I said, it's kind of hardto say it now because they're still in preseason. So you have all thesemaybe think about it from last year. You have all the well, thinkwhat I'm saying. You can't really go on the last year because the teamsof change so much. Yeah, like like for example, so let's say, let's say I could say the wizards right because they have John Wall leftthere. Well, he wasn't playing anyways, but I'm saying he's officially prayed now. So you know, I like Beo. So I think Washington,you know, can make some problems. I think into the preseason, likemaybe like the first two weeks get started. It's probably going to be extremely hardfor me to say who I think is going to be a contender becauseI still don't know all the trades that happen. I just know, likeyou know, like it Dwhite Howards and people are at nature. You know, the teams, they that they went to. Didn't Dwight tweet that hewas staying in La and then immediately was like, well, delete that,I'm actually going to philadelphy. It told the La Management that he wanted tocome back, but I think the deal didn't happen quick enough. But inmy and from my point of view, I think that they were they kindof put the white on the back bone, back burner, and they don't waitto see if they can get some better pieces. So I'm actually gladand they'll knock the de White. The La Roster is amazing from top tobottom. So if they had to lit the white go to get the rosterthey had up. You know, big ups to the GM. He madea hell of a comeback there because he's kind of on them. Yeah,but but the wight Howard had an awesome season last year, but I'm gladhe got a ring. Yeah, I kind of feel like now his historyis stamped. He would definitely go to the hall of fame because he hasthat ring now, because, you know, he after that backs what you know, a lot of people, a lot of people get him up.I don't feel like he was really yeah, but so what luck people staying iswhen you're like six foot ten and you're at big when you have backsurgery, a lot of people don't come back from that. You know,you got to imagine howm with wait he's he's carrying on. He's having backsurgery. Know he you know, his whole game was base was based offof dunking and blocking. So when you can't move as quick or you can'tjump his Eids, you used to, that can't, you know, extremelyaffect your games, especially if you're not known for, you know, beinga shooting, you know shooter and in having finesse to you a game,because he was more so like a power of personal he'll power to power todump when you so I'm glad to see he's, you know, he's healthyin things now. But but back to the LA roster. You know,they they got Montrez Harrow shoulders, the shoulder. Yeah, they got stroller. Now they get basically two, two to six man of a year awardsplayers in the team now. So that roster, I think, is,you know, from top to bottom. Is I don't see how they're goingto lose. If it were the clippers roster, I would say because justthe clippers half like a I don't know why, but anytime the clippers aregood I feel like they just kind of like don't really enjoy playing basketball,like they're just kind of like, let's just fast forward to the playoffs andlike we'll get it together then and then, I mean it didn't happen this yearabout. Yeah, I agree. I think the Lakers are like ifthey don't repeat, I'll be very surprised. Now I don't know is Lebron canwin that Lebron can win without a d but I definitely think he canstill go deep in the playoffs without Anthony Davis, because to me that andLa team now is really more of Anthony Davis's team. Of course, ofcourse Lebron still makes a major stamp on the team and you know, Ithink he's like thirty five now. He's still playing at an all star level. So I think he can definitely go deep in the playoffs by Anthony Davisis definitely going to have to be healthy...

...because, you know, we hadn'tseen too me games from from Kyrie and Katie, but you know, youget Katie, ky read us h that's that's a hard tip to bargain withand maybe maybe hard and getting thrown in there too, will say that hardenedsituation is. It's crazy, man, like you know now our ready reportof the day and they're kind of basic, saying like he's some Prima Donna andall he want to do is party and go to other cities. YEA, they were trying to say that about hard and saying that he showed upto practice late. That's why him in Westbrooks fell out. But you know, the funny thing about sports is, man, you see all this documentationand all these segments about these players and you never see clips and him sayingthat stuff is actually actually happen. So you know it's rough being a basketballplayer, man, because everyone is saying all these things about you but noone there's no clips of you saying those actual things. So you know thisis unfortunate, but I guess when you're making hundreds of millions of dollars,they could say what they want to say about me too. Yeah, I'mlike, you can, you can talk away on social media, just likeI'm getting that Hicks. Yeah, I think. I think it'll be ablast of a really good season. I'm excited to see. I'm still soimpressed with the whole bubble. Like I would I was shocked that went offwithout really any hitches or anything. So I'm I'm looking forward to the newseason, which will be a few weeks underway by the time this goes life, but still still early on. So all of our predictions a whole true. I will do one other basketball question just because I was talking about thislast night and I think it's always fun. Do you have a favorite dunk fromthe Slam Dunk contest all times? You know, probably the most iconicdunk is probably Mina Jordan jumped from the freedom line. I think that's everyoneto well that one, and then when Vince Carter jumped and put this on. Yeah, yeah, I would probably say those are probably one of mymy top two don't sold. So I got one that I didn't like it. I don't understand why he won. I was talking so much trash aboutthis. Who was to do that? Jumped over the KIA, like Griffith. What? Oh, yeah, like this big you jumped over the kidand everybody is praising you for it. I was so upset that here andthen I would say my probably two best in Dunk Games is when Um theAndred Jordan dunked on Brandon Knight. I wouldn't and he destroyed him. Yes, yes, yeah, and then my old school favorite dunk in game iswhen Dr j you remember when he came out that he came from the leftside but a room. He did a whole windmill and it came back onthe other side of the room. That that might have be the most atDunk I've ever seen them. My he looks like there's no effort at all, like he's just like this is so easy for me. Yeah, andit's just in game, you know. That's that's what makes the phrases ingame excellent choices. Christy, do you have any other favorite ones? Ithink that was a wonderful lest. Yeah, no, I think those are somethingthat was yeah, I just didn't remember the ones that she didn't reallyget. The credit. That's some one's I'm like fussing about. I likedthere was one. I remember the year. I think it's maybe like two thousandand two or two thousand and three, but do you remember when Chris Andersonhad like fifteen attempts the Birdman? He just like kept missing dunks withbird remember? Yeah, well, that's what that might have been. JustSmith might have won that year in two thousand and five. So this mighthave been the year before in two thousand and four, but I remember ChrisAnderson was in the dunk contest before that because I remembered him from the whenhe had all these miss dunks and I was like he wasn't even that goodlast year, like why is he back here? But he you did.He did a dunk the year before where he threw it off the backboard andthen like caught it and his legs and dunked. And then Jason Richardson wasright after him and Chris Anderson also went...

...through like five or six attempts beforehe finally ducked it and then just Jason Richardson goes the first time, doesthe same throw it off the backboard but then goes between the legs and threehundred and sixty and ducks successfully on the first time and you could just kindof hit did it like say anything, but you could just tell he waslike all right, like this guys is not good, like I'm just goingto show him up real quick. And it was so, so good.But I think, yeah, I think he's maybe my favorite dunk contested dunkerjust because again, like jumped so high and just looked so like this isa piece of cake every time he was doing it. Yeah, I rememberhe's played the horns that we saw him cup of awesome. Actually, Imy favorite in game dunk involves the Hornets, although maybe they were the bobcats atthat point, but it was old Richard Jefferson when he he dunks onMichael Kid Gilchrist and he gets called for an offensive fall for like pushing offhim, but he dunks. He's like thirty six at this point and hedunks so like so intensely on him. So it's similar to the de underJordan Dunk and the entire Hornets bench is just like falling out of their seeit's watching. That's when you know it's bad. Is always bad when you'reactually team has the least got the pitch. Yeah, you know it's going tobe eruptated next day. We look at him. Wait, he's justsitting there with like his heads in his hands. Falls. It's like let'sgo, let's move on, let's move on. They should put some basketballdunks and you'd you see the segment for you got moss. Yeah, yeah, second, yeah, you know, he shows. I had an NFLplays pretty much a catching like one hand or like catching over three people.But mad fat is so funny because you know Randy Moss lives and Shirley soum, I have a I have a friend who who was opening Jim's,who used to open the Jim up, but Jim up in the morning andI was jogging around trying to get warmed up. I was like hey,man, it's like man, had got looks like Randy Moss. Dogged aroundagain. I can't back. I stop. I said you look like Randy Moss. He looked at me like he want to Slat and he's like asI am Randy Moss. So you didn't pitch here. I you should throwin some dunks into your you got most sec that was the opportunity. Well, sports segment I give it an apply us. Hopefully everyone listening is alsosimilarly excited about the NBA season getting started, in the NFL season hitting the playoffs. I'm just just right around the corner there. And to bring itall back, to bring it all back. Are there plans for more games downthe line or is are you like five's good for now. We'll keepwe'll keep pushing this for now. So we do have like two games kindof a pipeline. We're working through the functionality game, how you play it. So you know, we want to make sure we have a good productbefore we put it out. So you know it takes longer and expect it. Then we're we're cool with taking a little longer. But then also ona production side, we would like to eventually have an actual live gangs towhere we would like have a hosted and people on TV. So that's somesome future goals that hopefully will will come to for wishing some awesome or lookinglooking forward to it. And before we wrap up, I always like toend with a top three, and so if you each one of if youwant to do like one each and then one together, or you each wantto do your top three, I just love to hear your top three favoritecards for many of the Games. So one of my favorite it's a factone, and this one points out the econom make Wellok, the gap withinthe black community, and it says the question is, how many hours doesthe black dollars circulate or how long does the black dollars circulate in the community? The answer is six hours. And so when you read that card you'relike what you know? It's kind of one of those things where we purposelyput in the game for people to take...

...a step back and like wow,like, what do you mean it only circulate six hours in the black communitybefore we spend it somewhere else. So I think that one is one ofmy favorite ones because it shows that our game is not only just Haha,laughing, you know, having a great time. We also try to reallythrow some important information in there to just, you know, spark conversations, forpeople to really think about it and kind of say, well, Hey, well, what can we do to change that, like how can wetry to work on keeping the dollar within the black community longer than six hours? And then, hopefully, what we want to come out of that conversationfrom the different groups of people that are playing it is hey, let's startsupporting more black owned business. This less, you know, purposely. You knowdo it. You know, when we get up in the morning andwhen we think, okay, what are we going to go eat today?Maybe let's think of a black restaurant that we want to go to and support. Or whatever we're wearing, let's try to see what fashion is out therethat's made about by a black entrepreneur. So that one is one of myfavorites. What would you say, since we've been talking about sports? Oh, of course we as a card. There's a question to ask who's thebest basketball player of all time? So I think on car we have MichaelJordan, Lebron, James, Kobe Bryant and, believe, Magic Johnson.So that question always turns into a discussion argument, because if you if youwatch, if you watch basketball now, there's always going to be a discussionwho's better, Michael All Lebron, right, and then you have people come inand say, well, how you skipping over Kolbe? How's Lebron skippingover Kobe? So that's one of my favorite questions as well. Yeah,the one. Oh, okay, another good one. I think when wetalk about what can you expect from McDonald's? Oh yeah, yeah, that's agood one. So, because, so the question is, what canyou expect from McDonald's at ten o'clock to night? Hmm, okay, let'ssee. He what do you think, without us even giving you any action, is all bad things. You're all bad. What would you expect fromMcDonald's at ten o'clock at night? Milk check machine broken? Those machines arenever broken. McDonald's was my first years old and I remember whoever clean theice cream machine, we would just say, oh, it's out for the restof the night because we don't want to have to go back and doit anymore. So those machines are not damned, they are not broken.So I think. I think other options on that question are, I think, cold fries and may know, it's gonna be ten minutes on Friday.Yeah, we don't have any more apple pies. Yeah, and I canremember. Yeah, but we we the reason why we make the cards becauseof the one. Because so, what happened is pregnant, choose have Crazso feels like you think you can you go get me a MC flurry right, or I want to back empty handed. So we can have a homemade mickflurry. It's something at last. Yeah, yeah, but you've gotyour hood car. You got to right there. You welcome to the cookout. You. Yes, yes, I'm in there and I will notbe bringing potato salad. And you know what? We got a potato salI think. Yeah, just been like...

...what won't you eat of everybody,you know, like they're just really particular. Come out. Yeah. Well,I have not. I've not seen all the cards yet, but everyevery thing that I've played I've I've had a blast with.

Why couldn't the piratessit down because I didn't have cheers. His booty got stolen. You knowwhat I like? It's bribery. Yeah, Ye, see, I'm not apirate pert. Yeah, you should have got that. Anything about that? The reason I did want to say something like that because me and myfellows we had like this pause. They we don't really do anymore like yoube like these do a couple years back, but any do anytime someone says something. was kind of like on the fence who, like pause, hasseen a segment. I was like his booty guts don't. How did youknow that? So you should. You should reconsider. You can expect thedrones. I'm not thinking about any of the booty I like. I like.
