It's a Gamer's World. We're all just living in it



This week, we're talking to Marty Pirolli, who is the owner and operator of Gamer's World, a chain of gaming stores across the Chicagoland area. From trading cards to Dungeons and Dragons, Gamer's World has a little bit of everything. It's not very tech, but very nerdy, so that's why we talked to him.


Plus, this week we've got a giveaway from our friends at Lenovo. Find out how to enter, and get your geek on while you navigate the holiday shopping season.
