Event One:
Title Dork Tower Board Game
Event Description Now you can play John Kovalic's Dork Tower characters... as they play their characters... in a magical quest for the ultimate prize where no strategy is too low, no player too Munchkiny, and no rule is safe!

Slay him and you win... fail, and be cast from the heights...
