Looking forward to the next one as I used to love that game - Pass the anti-stammel gas!

That was an unexpected namecheck, thanks!  Prompted me to update the boardgamegeek list to add the last year and a bit's worth of releases!

Excellent work , Sheridan.

And here's the other challenge from the episode.
Who is the artist on this grail page pick by Jim? Taken from the Traveller Dredd rpg rulebook if I remember correctly.

I don't remember the artist, but it's from a subscriber exclusive poster from about 2004 or 2005 - Jim would need to have a pretty big wall, I seem to recall it was almost quad poster sized!

I used it as a background image for the Gangs of Mega-City One articles in Mongoose's Signs & Portents Wargamer magazine, so it's probable that the picture in the Dredd RPG book is the scan I made of my poster (and a right pig it was to scan in it was, too!)

It's Unamerican Graffiti, which I believe was concocted on this very forum!

I'm pretty sure it's by Kev Walker and was originally done for the 1995 film - can anyone corroborate?

Yes, Steve Green on the facebook page wins the no-prize for being the first person to identify the Staples droid for me and Jim.
Thanks for all the extra info about the poster, the scanning(!), and the games.
