TW: Death;

In this first episode of The Extraction, we challenge you to think outside AND inside the box as we talk to Todd Etter to talk about his puzzle, Xbox, which he wrote for the Famine Game in 2013.

This episode contains spoilers for the puzzle Xbox, and some details of other puzzles from The Famine Game and the 2020 MIT Mystery Hunt.
