Hidden nods to quotes, characters and obscure references that only the true fans will pick up on are sprinkled throughout, and spotting them all or what's newly added is why they keep coming back.
Workshop Question - In what new way(s) can you incorporate surprise and delight features into your offering, to better entertain your consumers?
