In the latest Episode of The New 100, Craig continues his seemingly endless journey to play 100 games he has never played before (or apparently one he hasn't played in over a decade, like a cheater). In this episode, he is flushed with confusion as there is no easy way to classigy the games he lumped together in this episode: some light, some heavy, some cards, some dice, a little of everything. Sit back and enjoy the chaos that is Craig in the studio alone.
