Time once again to use the board game Wits and Wagers to judge whether your ability to form estimates is well-calibrated! I'll bring a copy of the game (generously on loan from the Will Kiely Collection).

In Wits and Wagers, you place bets on the (numerical) answers to trivia questions and get more points as you win. This helps gauge whether you are consistently making the best guess based on your current state of knowledge.
The meetup is at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar, in the cafe area. Look for the LW and SSC signs. People start arriving at 1:30 pm, and the main activity will begin at 2:30 pm. In accordance with store policy, please wear a mask when not seated.

Don’t take my word for it, hopefully Silas or someone else can chime in, but I believe the rule is only while standing up and no requirement while sitting down at table. Not sure if enforced or cared about though.
