Still Want to Know More?

Our friends over at the Gamerati produced what basically is a half-hour infomercial about Stan! wherein he tells many stories and factoids about his life and times in the hobby gaming industry. If enough people “like” the video, they might even make another one, and this time go to the fans for questions to pose during the video shoot.
