Return of the Deck of Death

  • Workout Date - 10/03/2023
  • Q In Charge -
  • The PAX -
  • AO -

YHC has received a lot of requests to see the Deck of Death workout again.  After a pre-blast Valentine’s message, the Pax was forewarned that they were getting exactly what they asked for.  Mumblechatter started off as a high, but quickly began to disappear.  Be careful what you wish for!!!

Forewarning….Bob Ross has asked that next time we use an UNO deck instead (108 cards!).
