You can have dinner with any board game personality past or present. Who is it, what are you eating and what are some questions or topics you want to cover?

This would be my choice as well. I've always enjoyed every conversation/interview I've ever seen with him. And we'd eat whereever he wanted to eat as I'm not picky about food. :)

Fun! It's not a super off the wall answer, but I think I would enjoy a dinner with any of the guys from the Dice Tower "4 Corners" group. That's Tom Vasel, Zee Garcia, Mike Dilisio, and Roy Cannaday. They all seem really nice and like lots of fun. I'm sure if I'm with any of them we're talking mostly about games, but I wouldn't mind if conversation drifted to other adjacent "nerdy" interests...Dune, Star Wars, LotR, etc. We're eating In n Out because I pretty much always want to eat In n Out.

Those guys seem like so much fun I bet that would be a great time.

Stephen Buonocore, I bet he has fantastic stories and I love his podcast. Whatever his favorite Italian place is, I can only imagine he has a good spot. I would also want to know what the biggest changes in the industry he has seen over the years.

Reiner Knizia. Me and that dude are grabbing some wings and talking about his design and where his ideas came from.

Knizia was my first thought. Just an incredibly smart guy - read his books!But Knizia and other contemporary designers exist in a world that already has designer games - they are the water they swim in. So let's go further back and talk to more of a pioneer - Sid Sackson. His #Acquire is often described as "the first Euro". (And he also wrote an excellent book!)

I think you are absolutely right, going way back to pick the brain of the people that came up in a different world would be very interesting!
+1 to this!

Founder of Portal Games Ignacy Trzewiczek. We would be eating Korean BBQ because I would love to see how he does on the grill. I would want to know his opinion of other game designers.

I always find his videos to be very entertaining.

After seeing the post about the book of his journey coming out... Klaus Tauber. We would naturally talk about Catan and what he thinks of today's board games. We would eat whatever the food is called that uses the gases and whatnot to see if his mind is blown by the latest in the current food technology.
