This week, we all fly in to see Emily at the hospital and record in her room. But the only way the hospital would let us do this was they made us agree to place games about hospitals and diseases. So we obliged. Also we wouldn’t have been able to fit a lot of recording junk into the room, so we recorded with OBS, in case you were wondering about this episode’s audio quality.

Well, we finally did it. We got 16 people together, and we brought Skype right up to its breaking point as we re-placed 16 games on the Let’s Place list.
