Wen and Andrew embark on a solo episode to figure out what is going on with Chuck E. Cheese. From its beginning as a place where kids could go to safely play video games to how it became a VERY unsafe place for children to play video games! Along the way, they cover everything from how the business grew, the video game crash of the 80's, and even make time to discuss how people are investing all their money in the Iraqi Dinar.
