This past January, Tom Vasel, a game-reviewing work horse in the board game world, lost his infant son, Jack, who was born two weeks premature. There was an overwhelming wave of support for him – emotional, spiritual, and financial – from the board game community, and Tom was deeply moved to start a memorial fund in his son’s name. The goal of the fund is to help out other board gamers who’s families are undergoing similar difficulties and tragedies.

My wife is pregnant with our 3rd child so my heart goes out to Tom over what he went through, and I’m inspired by the hope and courage he’s displayed through it all. I’ve already donated to the fund. You should too.

You can find more information at or you can read the press release here. And you can follow this link to donate through Paypal. Below is the announcement video.

God speed, little Jack.
