The Poppleton Mall is a friendly place, where each welcoming storefront promises commerce and community. One Family-owned business in particular offers its customers the opportunity to become more—if they’re cheerful, hard-working, and willing to invest in themselves. Becoming a member of The Family is the first step to owning your own happy storefront where you, too, can spread the joy of premium dietary supplements. It’s as easy as purchasing your own starter supply, signing up for a series of Family leadership seminars, and sticking to your prescribed regimen of brain-enhancing nootropics. As the staff are medically conditioned to say, “Welcome to our home!” Welcome to Poppleton Mall!

This last Spooktober game is a little bit late because it wasn’t actually recorded as one—shhh! People got sick and life got in the way, and we didn’t actually get to play a fourth spoopy one-shot. So please enjoy this re-purposed game of Heart that Ryan, Erik and Alex played a few months ago, and try to think Halloween-y thoughts while listening.
