Tonight! Tabletop sports game designer Tim Plum!

Sorry for lack of a blog update last week!

Tonight the Jerks are joined by Tim Plum of PT Sports Games, who will discuss his line of football, hockey and basketball games and the state of the sports board game business.

If you grew up playing games like Strat-O-Matic, APBA and Avalon Hill's Statis-Pro games, chances are you still play various and sundry other tabletop sports games, or have a curiosity about what the state of the business is like.

Tim will clue us in, from how he turned an interest into an enterprise, and whether cards and dice can compete, in a niche sort of way, with video games and the Internet.

After Tim's segment, Eno and Big Al talk Lions, specifically their 27-20 win in Washington on Sunday. Also on the docket are the Tigers as they close in on their third straight AL Central crown, another scare ofr Michigan football, MSU's woes, and the Dodgers' notorious swim in Arizona.

All that and more, including "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a handsome set of Funk & Wagnalls encyclopedias) and Jerk of the Week! It all starts at 7:00pm ET HERE.
