This Week in Gaming History by William H. Reed, Esq.
On May 14, 1951, American director, producer, and screenwriter Robert Zemeckis was born. He directed favorites Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Romancing the Stone, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. But his biggest contribution to gaming was a little series of films about a struggling teenaged musician. Zemeckis’s story of young Marty McFly inspired the time travel card game Back to the Future.

Whether you played it next year, or will play it last year, tell us about it on this week'sGeeklist!
