We are joined once again by guest Adrienne Ezell to talk about our time at GenCon 2018! We talk about the games we saw, the games we played, the games we demoed, the games we didn’t play and the games we acquired. We also talk about a few of the non game related things we did and a whole lot more during the “Best Four Days of Gaming!”
Barb and Matt are joined by game designer, graphic designer, and industry insider Adrienne Ezell to talk about GenCon 2018, the largest board gaming convention in the United States. Learn about the convention in general and find out which games make each of our top 5 list of Most Anticipated Games at GenCon!
Origins 2018 was a full five (six, really) fantastic days of board game convention goodness! In this awe-inspiring Origins recap episode, Barb and Matt are joined by Rebecca from To Play Is Human (dot com). Together with Rebecca, they endeavor to recall the occurrences of the 12th through the 15th of June. From spending time in the sky and on the ground with Isaac Vega to buying a wondrous tome in which Mike Selinker scribbled, and learning about the importance of gangs from Paul Grogan, the hosts recount it all. Well, except the bits they forgot.
The Players Wanted Podcast is headed to Origins!
To prepare for this sure to be epic event, we sat down to talk about what we’re most looking forward to at the fair. This will be the inaugural Origins Game Fair voyage for all of us and we couldn’t be more excited! Well, maybe Ella isn’t thrilled about the roughly 25 hours it will take to get her there…
In this bonus episode, we talk about the history of the Origins Game Fair, the events we’re excited for, the games we’re excited to play, the food we’re looking forward to eating and the drinks we’re looking forward to drinking!
Onward to Columbus, OH!
Barb, Matt and Ella re-launch the Players Wanted Podcast, a board gaming podcast dedicated to bringing new gamers into the hobby and helping them thrive. In this episode, we discuss what it takes to introduce people to board games and why we chose board games as a hobby in the first place.
We also debate the geology of Australia, teach incorrect facts about snakes and otherwise embarrass ourselves.
Oh, and we talk about a whole bunch of board games.
