This is a hard one to write.
On January 24th, Tom Vasel’s newborn son Jack passed away due to medical issues. Tom is well known to most gamers as the face of The Dice Tower review site and a huge supporter of our hobby. Tom posted an update of baby Jack’s condition on the Board Game Geek website here. There is also a very touching video tribute to Jack that you can watch on YouTube.
In addition, the generous community on BoardGameGeek has started a game auction that will have all money donated to the Vasel family. If you’ve got a classic game you’d be willing to auction to a good cause, or maybe want to pick up a game to show syour support, please visit the auction page here. The auction doesn’t end until February 7th, so you’ve still got lot’s of time.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Tom, his wife Laura and their girls. Our thoughts are with you.
